India’s premier leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has been quite active on social media these days. During the nationwide lockdown, Chahal has kept his fans entertained with his funny videos and photos. The 29-year-old shares a great camaraderie with Indian batsman Rohit Sharma which is visible both on and off the field.
Showing his brotherly love towards Rohit, Yuzi recently captioned his photo with the Mumbaikar saying that ‘brothers don’t let each other wander in the dark alone’.

The official Instagram handle of the IPL reposted Chahal’s post and on it as well, the wrist-spinner responded but with an even funnier caption. “Chahal babu tu he mera 264 runs ka record todega @ipl20,” he replied.
Yuzvendra Chahal is one of the best leg-spinners in the country at the moment. The Haryana-lad made his India debut in 2016 against Zimbabwe. He picked up a wicket on his ODI debut game as well.
Since then, Yuzi has played 52 ODIs for his country and has scalped 91 wickets with an economy rate of 5.07. He has even featured in 42 T20Is and has 55 wickets to his name with an economy rate of 8.18.
Chahal has also been an integral part of the Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The right-armer joined the RCB team back in 2014. In his IPL career, Chahal has played 84 matches and has scalped ten wickets with an economy rate of 7.78. He was all set to play for RCB in the 13th season of the IPL. However, the BCCI decided to postpone the IPL 2020 as a safety measure against the coronavirus pandemic.
