Indian cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal loves to interact with his fans and followers on social media. From making TikTok videos before the app got banned to gatecrashing others’ live sessions on Instagram, Chahal remains one of the most active cricketers on social media.
Chahal’s camaraderie with his colleagues, especially Rohit Sharma, is well known in public. Both of them never miss an opportunity to pull each other’s legs.
On Wednesday (15 July), the leg-spinner shared a throwback picture with Rohit and wrote, “I don’t need a superhero, I have a big brother.”
Ritika Sajdeh, Rohit’s wife, was quick to notice and come up with an adorable response to the post as she wrote, “Aaawwwww.”
The 29-year-old leg-spinner last played for India in a 3-0 series defeat to New Zealand in ODIs earlier this year. However, his performance was decent with the ball.
Chahal was all set to play for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the 13th edition of IPL, but the COVID-19 epidemic played a spoilsport. He is one of the most crucial bowlers for the Bangalore-based franchise.
Meanwhile, Rohit’s last appearance for India came against New Zealand when he was leading the team in the absence of Virat Kohli. In what was the last T20 game of the five-match series, the right-handed batsman endured a calf injury and was ruled out for the remainder of the tour.
Rohit was about to make a comeback through the ODI series against South Africa, originally slated to commence from March 12. However, the series got cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The batting maestro scored his first double hundred of the Test career in a home-series against South Africa in 2019. By doing so, he also joined the elite list of cricketers to score a double century in both Test and ODI cricket.
