Yuzvendra Chahal's fantastic run of form in IPL 2024 is set to go unrewarded as a stunning inside detail on India's T20 World Cup 2024 squad selection seems to suggest that the Rajasthan Royals Leg Spinner is not even in contention to be selected.Β 

Yuzvendra Chahal is currently the joint highest wicket taker in the IPL alongside Jasprit Bumrah after picking up 13 wickets in eight games so far this season. Not only that on Monday against Mumbai Indians, Chahal became the first player in IPL history to take 200 wickets.

If the report does come up to be true then it will be a huge disappointment for Yuzvendra Chahal's aspirations to return to the Indian Cricket team. If Chahal is not selected then that would mean the leg spinner would have missed four consecutive world cups (T20 WC 2021, T20 WC 2022, ODI WC 2023, T20 WC 2024).
