Yuzvendra Chahal and Ish Sodhi wins the internet with their Twitter banter

Team India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal can go beyond just spinning the wrong one on the cricket pitch. He can also check-mate his opposition because he is a former chess champion.

After New Zealand’s win over India in the second T20I, it was Chahal’s turn to beat Kiwi spinner Ish Sodhi in a game of chess.

Both the cricketers engaged in a few games of chess in a long flight to Thiruvananthapuram and took on to Twitter sharing their feats.

Chahal was the first one to start the banter on Twitter. He shared a screenshot of the result of their first game after having checkmated Sodhi as he tweeted, “Hard luck my brother.”

Ish Sodhi tweeted, “Haha god samn it brother! Now its public, @Matthenry014 won’t let me forget it haha! Teach me how! #leggies”

Sodhi didn’t give up and instead asked for a rematch.

He tweeted, “Rematch has already happend… fair to say, chess champion for a reason @yuzi_chahal #toogood”

Yuzi, in turn, revealed that he was now leading by a margin of 2-0.

Sodhi replied saying that it was a long flight and he still stood a chance to cover it all up.

Even after having reached the hotels, Sodhi was all in for round 3 as he had the chess table set for Chahal.

He tweeted, “Ready for round 3 @yuzi_chahal bhai! Jaaldi aajo! #INDvsNZ”

And it seemed like Yuzi managed to make it 3-0 as well with his following tweet.
