Former Pakistan captain Salman Butt has taken a jibe at Indias rising mystery spinner Varun Chakraborty. "Varun may be a mystery bowler but Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan were no surprise. Pakistan defeated India by 10 wickets in the T20 World Cup match played in Dubai on Sunday.
Indias spin bowler Varun Chakraborty has made his mark as a mystery bowler. He has a knack for bowling a variety of balls. He was the highest wicket-taker in the second edition of the recently concluded IPL in the UAE. Looking at his recent performance, Virat Kohli and the team management gave more priority to RR Ashwin in this crucial match. But in the match played against Pakistan, he was seen struggling like other Indian bowlers and could not take a single wicket.
Salman Butt said, Varun Chakravarthy may be a mystery bowler, but he did not surprise us, Pakistan many children play cricket with tape balls, in Pakistan street cricket, every child bowls like this. During this, Salman, referring to former Sri Lankan bowler Ajantha Mendis, said that he was also called a mystery bowler but he was not very successful against Pakistan. "Early in his career, Mendis troubled many teams, but his record against Pakistan was weak.
Salman Butt further said that Varun Chakraborty may not play against Pakistan again, considering how easily Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan scored against him. According to Butt, it does not seem that India will give Chakraborty a chance to play against Pakistan again, if India does it again, then the result can be the same again.
