As seen in the IPL, Chahar is also a decent lower-order batsman. He can strike a few balls out of the park and with the current Indian squad having a long tail, Chahar could be a good fit at No. 8 or No. 9.

In all three forms of the game, Team India requires bowlers who are capable of hanging out for a few overs in the middle. This aspect becomes very important in close games and apart from Bhuvneshwar Kumar, no other player in the current squad seem to have this ability.

The likes of Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami are typical No. 11 batsmen and including all of them in the squad is risky when the team loses a few early wickets.

Chahar can solve this issue and allow the team to take games closer instead of giving up when the 7th wicket falls.
