Fans on Twitter raised calls to bring leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal into the Indian XI for the semi-final of the T20 World Cup 2022 against England in Adelaide. They said that R Ashwin along with him form a great pair going ahead into the important stages of the tournament.
Indian spinners have struggled in the T20 World Cup 2022
India has managed with ease to find a place in the semi-final of the T20 World Cup 2022. They played some staggering cricket in the league stage and ended at the top of the points table to book their berth in the semifinal 2 in Adelaide.
The Rohit Sharma-led side will lock horns with England and it’s fair to say that there will be no room for error for them as it’ll be a knockout game. Going into the game, one of the biggest concerns for them will be the form of the spinners. While pacers have done a terrific job, the slow bowlers in particular Axar Patel have failed to get going.
While Ashwin has still managed to pick up 6 wickets, Patel has been a real concern for India. Not only he has failed to pick wickets but he hasn’t stepped up with the bat when he got the opportunity. On the other hand, Yuzvendra Chahal hasn’t played a single game in the tournament
Fans on Twitter raise the call to include Yuzvendra Chahal in the Indian side for the semi-finals
With the semi-final, just a few days away, fans on Twitter have raised calls to bring Yuzvendra Chahal into the playing XI in place of Akshar Patel. They feel that he along with R Ashwin will form great pair and they play in the next game. Here are some of the reactions:

What happen with chahal ? Just checking 🤔 #T20WorldCupAdvertisement

Ravi Ashwin is the worst spinner in this WC followed by Axar Patel.
I'm really really worried about our spin attack.
I reckon it's better to play Hooda and Chahal, Hooda gives you batting and Chahal gives you bowling.#INDvsZIM #Ashwin #ICCT20WorldCup2022 #crickettwitter

Yuzi chahal is the best ever t20 player to never play a single t20 wc game. Selection committee & dravid have blood in their hands.Advertisement

Ashwin and Chahal are DK and Pant of spinners. Play anyone Maan not going to make much of a difference

@cricketaakash kya lagta hai semi final me chahal ko khilayegi team india??Advertisement

India should have played Chahal today, so that he could have some match practice before the big game of Semifinal. I think Ashwin is good enough batsmen in place of Axar to bat at Seven.

So guys it’s India v England at Adelaide on 10th ! Very nervous times for me as a fan, desperately want india to win and beat the poms convincingly ! Chahal Ashwin combo maybe considering the Adelaide pitch ?? Thoughts @RockDeadSoul @bbbohraAdvertisement

I'm saying the same thing , choose chahal over axar in semis . England have alot of left handers and axan isn't even contributing with bat .

Yes he should play.. DK waste his keeping very weak. Also ChahalAdvertisement
— Vijaykumar Chepyala (@vkchepyala) November 6, 2022
Bro Chahal is must. If you want 7 batsmen then we don't have any option other than Hooda. And Rohit doesn't use bowling skills of Hooda

Akshar Patel ki jagah Yusuf chahal ko rakhiye aur Surya Kumar Yadav ko 4 number per sahi haiAdvertisement

What do you think about chahal's chances making into the playing eleven ??

Need to play chahal against England. If we can Axar, he is going to go for runs. Chahal is a wicket taking bowler. Against England we need to take wickets to contain them.Advertisement

Chahal in place of whom? Ashwin bowled well today and his batting is handy..So Axar needs to be dropped..but that does weaken batting..
— DK (@DebK669) November 6, 2022Advertisement
Chahal chahiye batting strong karni h…ye fraudster dk ke place pe pant chahiye….
Itne tak batting rahegi
— KAINEEE ☄️ (@singhkainesss) November 6, 2022
We needs middle overs wickets otherwise we are losing , team needs chahal to enforce that with Ash.Axar may turn out useless.

Spinners performance is not satisfactory.Chahal should have been tried in today's match.Advertisement
— Pradip Kumar Baidya (@ba161aad8afa4f4) November 6, 2022
Chahal should play instead of Akshar and Pant should continue instead of DK
