Internet Desk: Yuzuvendra Chahal has revealed that the Indian bowlers have been targeting Australian opening batsman David Warner, as the team management feels he is the most dangerous player in the opposition camp.

"Warner is Australia's key player. When he settles in, he can play the big knock. Although Aaron Finch scored a century in Indore, Warner is the most dangerous player," Chahal said at pre-match press conference.
He added, "He has the experience of playing in the IPL and his mindset is to attack. If he plays 40-50 balls, he can score 70-80 runs. Our main aim is to get Warner out quickly so that in the middle overs, we can maintain the pressure."
The main difference between the both sides has been the form of the spinners. The Indian spinners comprising of Yuzuvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav has so far picked 13 wickets compared to the Australian spinners.

"Our spinners have taken 13 wickets as compared to the Australian spinners. We have used the conditions much better than them. That is our plus point. Adam Zampa is the only wrist spinner in the team and he is not featuring in the team consistently," Chahal said.
On bowling in tandem with Kuldeep Yadav and Bengaluru wicket, Chahal said he knows the UP chinaman for a very long time and both plan things in a better way by deliberating on bowling strategies before the matches.
"I know Kuldeep Yadav for a very long time. We have played with and against each other a lot. If I bowl first, then I tell him about kind of assistance the track is providing. If he bowls first, he does the same and what's the right area to bowl to a certain batsmen," he said.
The newest spin twins are enjoying each other's success. Talking about how they plan ahead a match, the leg spinner said,

"The combination is good. Before the match, we discuss what the wicket will be like. We also discuss what ball to bowl to which batsmen. We always have plans."

The leg spinner has been Glenn Maxwell's nemesis in the ongoing ODI series and the Haryana leg-spinner said that the flamboyant Australian's vulnerability outside the off-stump has been his undoing.
Chahal has got Maxwell out in all three ODIs with Maxwell being stumped in back-to-back games.

"My plan to Maxwell is not to bowl at the stumps. That's a wrong area. I tend to bowl outside the off-stump and I vary my pace. I know that if I can bowl 2-3 dot balls, he will step out and try to play an aggressive shot. However, in order to beat the batsman, the line and length has to be perfect," signed off Chahal.
