8. Yuzvendra Chahal

Yuzvendra Chahal India

The wrist-spinner is one of the important assets in the Indian spin department. He is best known for providing crucial breakthroughs by taking important wickets. His magical bowling spells have often titled the game towards India’s favour.

Chahal ended up as the leading wicket-takers for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 13th edition of the IPL. Having played 15 games, he accounted for 21 dismissals to his name with a bowling average of 19.28. He registered his best bowling figures of 3/18.

The 30-year-old cricketer will surely be a big part of Virat Kohli’s plans. The Indian captain knows when to introduce him in the passage of play. Chahal took 59 wickets in 45 games, registering his best bowling figures of 6/25. He bagged 2 four wicket-hauls and 1 five-wicket haul in the shortest form of the game.
