India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was subject to some ribbing from his team’s captain Virat Kohli after the bowler shared a picture of himself with West Indies skipper Kieron Pollard on Instagram.
India will take on West Indies in the decider of the three-match ODI series in Cuttack on Sunday.
The series is locked at 1-1 after the Men in Marron thumped India by eight wickets in Chennai, but the Men in Blue hit back strongly in Visakhapatnam, sealing the second ODI by 107 runs.
Ahead of the final ODI, Chahal uploaded a picture on social media in which he can be seen holding Pollard’s bat. His post read: ”10 kilo ka bat, 2.5 kilo ka haath!!”
To this, Kohli hilariously trolled Chahal by commenting: “Abey Teri thigh se badi calf hai uski (his calves are bigger than you thighs).”
Kuldeep Yadav also joined in on the banter.
The one forced change India will have to make to their playing XI for Sunday’s series decider will be in the bowling department.
Deepak Chahar, who played both the first two matches, is out due to an injury. Navdeep Saini, who has been called up as cover, could come into the XI, or India could play with three spinners in the form of Ravindra Jadeja, Kuldeep and Chahal.
