‘I have never met Chahal’: Danielle Wyatt on meeting her ‘social media buddy’ in person

In recent months, there has hardly been any cricketer who has been active on social media as much as Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.

Chahal is known to crash Instagram Live conversations through his hilarious comments and was even barbed at by Indian captain Virat Kohli, regarding his habit.


Kohli, along with vice-captain Rohit Sharma, mocked Chahal’s uneasiness during lockdown claiming that the spinner must be itching to go outside once it is lifted.

Chahal was scheduled to resume his IPL stint with RCB in the thirteenth edition, which is now postponed amid COVID-19 pandemic outbreak in India.


Also, Chahal developed a substantial amount of following through his rib-tickling Tik-Tok videos. The wily tweaker’s banter with England batter Danielle Wyatt is well-known by now.

A few months back, Wyatt posted a picture of herself while playing a stroke during a match. To which Chahal commented, ‘six sixes in an over’.

Wyatt humorously replied at Chahal by saying that she could only achieve the feat if the latter was bowling to her.


Now, the England swashbuckler revealed about not meeting Chahal in person and that their interactions are only limited to social media.

“I have never met Chahal. We follow each other on Instagram and have some good friendly banter towards each other. He is a fantastic bowler and he is absolutely funny on social media too,” Wyatt told cricket.com

Further, Wyatt gained headlines for her meeting with Sachin Tendulkar and his son Arjun at Lord’s Cricket Ground back in 2009-10.


After a formal introduction, Wyatt bowled a few deliveries at Arjun and tagged him as ‘very good’. However, Wyatt claimed that she doesn’t like facing Arjun anymore since he is getting quicker.
