Chawla looking to make his mark in World Cup

Young Indian leg spinner Piyush Chawla is looking forward to the Twenty20 World Cup after a number of impressive performances taking 12 wickets for the Kings XI Punjab.

The 21 year old enjoyed his time during the Indian Premier League but admitted playing for India was the ultimate inspiration.

"I don't think that IPL performance will matter in T20 World Cup. Both are altogether very different tournament. Playing for India is ultimate inspiration and all of us will try to give our best shot," said Chawla.

"I have never been to West Indies but I am confident of doing well there. Yuvraj Singh has told me about Caribbean pitches. They will be slower and I am going to be among wickets for sure," he added.

"India will be a strong contender. We have one of the best batting line up and equally balanced bowling attack. We would love to win the trophy again. My aim will be not to contain runs, I target wickets."

"I can also contribute as a lower order batsman. I think it (batsman) will come handy in the World Cup," added Chawla.
