Chahal had a quiet debut in June 2016, but stormed to the limelight in 2017. He had figures of 6-25, 4-23, 4-52 and 3-43 all in one year in international T20s. He had most T20 wickets in the world in 2017 at 23 (17 was the second highest).
Chahal also had 21 ODI wickets and 14 IPL scalps.
He’s one of the only two bowlers in the world (the other is Sri Lankan Ajantha Mendis) to have taken a 6-wicket haul in an international T20 innings.
