Yuzvendra Chahal equals best figures from an Indian bowler in Australia, leaves Twitterati in awe

Yuzvendra Chahal equals best figures from an Indian bowler in Australia, leave Twitterati in awe

New Delhi, Jan 18: India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal made most of the opportunity he was given in the third and final one-day international against Australia in Melbourne on Friday (January 18).

Chahal was given a spot in the Playing XI as his spin twin Kuldeep Yadav was rested by the team management. The right-arm spinner didn't disappoint his captain as he gave the hosts two big blows in a gap of three deliveries in his very first over.

Chahal removed set Shaun Marsh and Usman Khawaja in the same over to rattle Australia's top-order. In his second spell, Chahal removed set Peter Handscomb by trapping him in front for 58. Chahal also accounted for the wickets of tail-enders Jhye Richardson (16) and Adam Zampa (8) to become only the second spinner after Imran Tahir to grab a fifer in Australia and South Africa.

The wrist-spinner returned with the figures of 42/6 from his quota of 10 overs in the game to help India skittle Australia for 231 in 48.3 overs.

The leg-spinner's efforts equalled the best figures from an Indian bowler on Australian soil. Ajit Agarkar had in 2004 produced similar figures at this very venue.

Here's how Twitterati reacted to Chahal's impressive bowling:
