If you’re Yuzvendra Chahal, this is the player Gautam Gambhir wants to replace you for the Sri Lanka match

India’s next match in the Asia Cup is on Tuesday, and it’s a must-win game against Sri Lanka. In the lead up to the game, former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir has proposed that his country should switch out Yuzvendra Chahal with another bowler in the playing XI.

On Sunday, India’s Super-4 stage competition began with a loss against Pakistan, who went on to win the match. The exciting Asia Cup match that was played at the Dubai International Stadium went down to the final over, when the team captained by Babar Azam emerged victorious by a score of five wickets.

India had a good chance of making it two in two against Pakistan in the ongoing continental event after posting 181 for 7 on the board in the stipulated 20 overs. However, Pakistan took home the victory thanks to Mohammad Rizwan’s 71 runs off 51 balls and Mohammad Nawaz’s crucial cameo of 42 runs off 20 balls. India posted 181 for 7 on the board in the stipulated 20 overs.

India’s next game, which will take place on Tuesday and is absolutely crucial, is against Sri Lanka. Ahead of the game, former India cricketer Gautam Gambhir has urged to the management of the squad that they should select Avesh Khan instead of Yuzvendra Chahal in the playing XI. In the meantime, the veteran opener for India offered his opinion that the squad ought to provide the youthful leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi with a “longer run.”

“Substitute the name Avesh (Khan) with Chahal (Yuzvendra). Ravi Bishnoi has accomplished everything there is to accomplish in this game, so you should absolutely stick with him. Since Chahal’s bowling performance hasn’t been all that impressive in this competition, it’s definitely time to give Bishnoi a longer run, “remarked Gambhir on Star Sports following the conclusion of Sunday’s encounter against Pakistan.

In the match against Pakistan a week ago, Bishnoi finished with a bowling performance of 1 for 26 in four overs. While Chahal returned statistics of 1 for 43 in his four overs of the Super-4 match, Avesh was not a member of the squad and hence did not participate.

Notable is the fact that Avesh and Chahal both participated in India’s opening match of the tournament, which was contested against Pakistan on August 28. While Avesh gave up 19 runs over the course of two overs and took one wicket, Chahal failed to take a wicket and gave up 32 runs over the course of four overs.

In the second match, which was played against Hong Kong, Chahal had a bowling performance of 0 for 18 in his quota of four overs, but Avesh had a bowling performance of 53 runs for one wicket in his quota of four overs.
