Information about Yuzvendra Chahal
He made his first-class debut in November 2009 against Madhya Pradesh in Indore.
Chahal developed a great interest in both chess and cricket at the age of 7.

He performed exceptionally well in his age-group chess tournaments; was the India national junior champion (U-12) in chess, and represented India in the World Cup in 2003 in Greece, with an overall career rating of 1946.
According to him, playing chess helps him to become more patient, controls his temper and makes him able to read batsman's mind.
