Chahal during his spell on Wednesday.

In an extraordinary spell of spin bowling, India’s Yuzvendra Chahal picked up six wickets for 25 runs in the third T20I against England on Wednesday.

In the process, Chahal became the first Indian bowler to pick up five wickets or more in a T20I match and recorded the best bowling figures by an Indian in the format at the international level.

Chahal’s bowling figures are, in fact, the third best of all time in T20Is – only bettered by Sri Lanka’s Ajantha Mendis who had spells of 6/8 and 6/16 against Zimbabwe and Australia respectively.

The Indian record was previously held by Ravichandran Ashwin who had taken 4/8 in a game against Sri Lanka in 2016.

Here, we look at the top five bowling spells by Indian bowlers in T20Is.
