Chahal backs India to return to winning ways after Delhi defeat

Chahal backs India to return to winning ways after Delhi defeat

Rajkot, Nov 6 (UNI) India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal brushed aside the team's

defeat to Bangladesh in the first T20 international in Delhi, saying that a three-match

series affords enough time to bounce back.

Bangladesh beat India by seven wickets in the series opener on Sunday, chasing

down a modest target of 149 with ease. It was their first victory over India in the

shortest format.

"A couple of matches can go wrong, but there is no pressure from the management,"

Chahal said, ahead of the second game in Rajkot. "The only thing is that we shouldn't

repeat the mistakes that we commit in any particular match."

The 29-year-old, who registered figures of 1/24 in the match, said that the team

believes in itself to make a comeback in Rajkot, an ICC report said.

"It is not about pressure. It is a three-game series, not a knockout game, so obviously

one will win, one will lose, and that day they played better than us," he said. "We are

one down and still two matches to go, and obviously if we believe in ourselves, we will

come back."

Though he has been a match-winner for India in the limited-overs formats over the

last couple of years, Chahal said that he doesn't see himself as the leader of the

bowling attack. "It's not like that. Among our bowlers, everyone has played 30-40

IPL matches. They have good experience. I have just played extra T20Is compared

to them."

"In a match, I can only bowl four overs. There are 16 more overs to be bowled. If

the whole team as a unit bowls well, only then we will win. It's not a matter of one

person," Chahal said.

The leg-spinner was also lavish in his praise for the opposition, who he thinks are

a strong side despite the absence of their veterans Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan.

"Even without Shakib and Tamim, they are a decent team. They have some

experienced players, even a couple of new guys did well. So we didn't think that since

two players are missing, so they are a weak team," he added.

The second T20I will be played on Thursday.
