Chahal in IPL 2021
Meanwhile, Chahal was going through a lean patch in IPL 2021 as the leggy could just manage to take four wickets in seven games. His economy was also on the higher side (8.26) this year. His strike rate was 34.50 and his average was 47.50. Comparing his stats in IPL 2021 to last year where he picked 21 wickets, this year was certainly a tough one for him.
