Speaking on the sidelines of the book launch of Anindya Dutta's Spell-binding Spells yesterday, Manjrekar said: "When I watch Chahal what strikes me about him, is that he's a wily character. He must weigh around 42 kg I think, but he has got a massive heart and great courage. I've never seen a bowler in a T20 game, on a flat pitch, having the courage to bowl the ball right there in the zone where the batsman can loft it for a six. But he does that. He thinks about how he can get his wicket; he backs himself."
Chahal has taken 21 wickets in 14 ODIs at an average of 27.19, and 18 wickets off 12 T20Is at 18.83. His best of 6-25 came in the win over England in the third T20I in February.
