He’s had fair amount of success against Maxwell. Many guys underestimate him, they feel he bowls just stump to stump. But even when it comes to that in lesser helpful conditions, he’s got tremendous control over his flight and the length that he hits.”Very rarely you will see Chahal pushing the ball through. He’s only pushing the ball through when he’s trying to bowl the flipper. Today was a great example when he got Warner out. Warner was beaten by the length. He stepped out to play the big shot but then he realised he’s not got to the pitch of the ball.advertisementChahal strikes. Warner departs after scoring 56 runs.Australia 133/2 after 24.4 overs (@BCCI) June 9, 2019″And that is the ability of Chahal, you know the arm speed is exactly the same, but he releases the ball bit later than normal and that is what deceives batters,” Tendulkar told India Today in an exclusive interview after India’s victory.After opting to bat first, India rode on a stupendous 117 from opener Shikhar Dhawan and useful fifties from Rohit Sharma (57) and Virat Kohli (82), to post the highest total by any team against Australia at World Cups.After that, Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah shone with the ball with 3 wickets each while Chahal bagged two as India bowled out Australia for 316 in 50 overs and topped the defending champions from third place in the 10-team points table with 2 wins from as many games.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Sachin Tendulkar surprised with David Warner’s slow batting vs IndiaAlso Read | Sachin Tendulkar questions Australia tactics in failed run chase vs IndiaAlso Read | Sachin Tendulkar wants Shikhar Dhawan to break his record in ICC tournamentsAlso Read | Apologised to Steve Smith on behalf of crowd, says Virat KohliFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?
