European conditions have always troubled visitors from the subcontinent. Indian players are no different, and the leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has opened up about his struggle to bowl in 15- a degree temperature against Ireland.
The Indian players are finding it hard to adjust to the cold conditions. More so because they played the last three months of cricket in India in extreme heat, and adapting to such a temperature drop is tough for any player, but Chahal is finding it harder than others.
The leg spinner once again proved to be Men in Blue’s key bowler. He picked up the crucial wicket of Harry Tector and conceded 11 runs in his three overs.
He was adjudged the Man of the Match for his brilliant bowling, but the player has opened up about how tuff it was for him to bowl in such conditions.
“Very difficult (in these cold conditions). I felt like a finger spinner today. Sometimes it’s hard, but you have to adapt to every condition. “He (skipper Hardik) gave me the liberty to bowl. The atmosphere was pretty chilly. I wore three sweaters,” said Chahal.
If the dropping temperature was not enough, then the rain and strong breeze made it further difficult for the bowler.
