Yuzvendra Chahal developed a knack of trading wickets for runs playing IPL on a bowler's graveyard like Chinnaswamy Stadium, and that's now proving handy in the ODI series against SA, where he has picked seven wickets in the first two ODIs. The Haryana bowler said that the skipper backs him to go for wickets in the middle overs, and he doesn't mind being hit for a few runs. "If you worry about the batsman's stature, you can't play to your strengths. I don't bowl to get cheap economy. My strength is to go for wickets. That's why I am in the team," he said.
