Piyush Chawla is a diminutive looking, but a very effective leg-spinner, in line to take over from Anil Kumble as the premier leg-spinner of the country. He made his first class debut in 2005, but shot into prominence when he befuddled and got Sachin Tendulkar out off a googly. His leg-spinner turns a little, but when combined with his googly and the wrong-one makes him a dangerous bowler.

It was this wicket of Sachin Tendulkar that propelled into fame, and he soon made his first class debut for the Central Zone team – he plays for the Uttar Pradesh in Ranji Trophy – and then picked up four wickets in the final of the Under-19 World Cup, to seal his selection for a Test spot against England at Mohali. But with Anil Kumble leading the side, and the first choice leg-spinner of the team, it made his place in the Test team a problem. He played his second Test two years after he played his first, when Kumble was injured against South Africa.

Ever since Kumble's retirement from ODI cricket, Chawla has been a regular in the ODI squad, and often a second choice spinner to Harbhajan Singh. He was also a part of the World T20 winning Indian squad, but did not play a single match. Chawla was picked by the King XI Punjab for the first season of the IPL.
