Team India’s Yuzvendra Chahal, who showcased an awe inspiring performance with the ball during India’s campaign opener in the World Cup 2019 against South Africa on Wednesday, revealed that the wicket of proteas captain Faf du plessis was his favourite.

Chahal who added four wickets to his name and was having a candid conversation with Kuldeep Yadav after the match where the latter asked him about his favourite wicket.


"Faf's wicket was the best as he was playing with small forward-steps and I was drifting the ball really well. The previous two balls, I had bowled him leg spin. So on that ball, I chose to bowl on an angle so the ball drifts and hit the off stump. He couldn't pick it, he thought it was a leg spin, and that's why the ball hit the inside of his bat and hit the stumps," Chahal said in a video posted by Bcci.tv.

Rohit Sharma who also displayed an impeccable performance with the bat and scored a century to help team India chase down a target of 228. Rohit Sharma remained not out and played a knock of 122 runs of 144 balls.

India will face the Aussies in their next match on June 9.
