Former cricketer Piyush Chawla has thrown his weight behind wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav, predicting that he will be India's preferred specialist spinner as the national team advances to the Super Eight stage of the T20 World Cup in the Caribbean.

India showcased stellar performances in challenging batting conditions at the Nassau County Stadium in New York, securing victories against Ireland, Pakistan, and the USA. They are now gearing up to face Canada in their final group stage match in Lauderhill, Florida, before heading to the Super Eight stage.

According to Chawla, while spinners were not essential in New York's conditions, they are set to become pivotal in the tournament as it progresses. India boasts a solid spin arsenal with Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, and Ravindra Jadeja at their disposal.
