Yuzvendra Chahal turned 30 on Thursday (July 23) and wishes poured in on social media from all parts of the world for the Indian wrist-spinner.
Chahal is the first Indian men’s cricketer to pick up a five-wicket haul in T20Is. He achieved the feat in 2017 against England.
The Jind-born is only the second bowler in the history of the game to take a six-for in T20Is as well in the ODIs.
Chahal, who also happens to be the fastest Indian bowler to claim 50 T20I wickets, made his international debut against Zimbabwe in 2016.
The leggie has so played 42 matches in the shortest format and has represented his country in 52 ODIs.
Currently, all the Indian cricketers, including Chahal, have been away from competitive cricket since March due to COVID-19 pandemic. Chahal, amid the lockdown, has hogged much attention due to his social media activities and hilarious TikTok videos. With IPL 2020 likely to be played in the UAE during September-November window, Chahal is set to brace the field again while donning the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) jersey.
Here are a few tweets from the cricket fraternity wishing Yuzvendra Chahal on his birthday:
