How did they fair? Who won the challenge,” the video was captioned.Chahal came out on top after managing to hit the stump twice while Kuldeep hit it just once after trying out for a long time.It will be interesting to see if Chahal and Kuldeep both get a shot at the Kiwis when India take on New Zealand in their third match of the World Cup 2019 on June 13.The pitch at Trent Bridge is expected to offer more assistance to the fast bowlers and India may look to include Mohammed Shami in their playing XI for that game. The weather prediction for Thursday says that it’s going to be overcast throughout the duration of the match with the temperature hovering around 15 degrees Celsius. Rain is likely to play a part in the game as well.advertisementIndia opted for the same playing XI in their last match against Australia with Chahal and Kuldeep both in the team. Chahal bagged two wickets in the match while Kuldeep conceded 55 runs from his 9 overs without any success but was economical in returns on a good batting track at The Oval.Chahal has been in superb form in the first two games and has picked up 6 wickets so far which is why his selection in the final XI is a no-brainer. Kuldeep might have to warm the bench with Shami getting his first game in this edition at Trent Bridge on Thursday.Also Read | World Cup 2019: Shikhar Dhawan to undergo scans on his swollen thumbAlso Read | India cruising towards World Cup 2019 semi-finals?
