Team India star Yuzvendra Chahal announced his engagement to choreographer Dhanashree Verma and the cricket fraternity poured in wishes congratulating the leg-spinner on occasion.
While Virat Kohli and Hardik Pandya led the way, with wishes, Rohit Sharma and Virender Sehwag took to their respective Twitter handles to greet Chahal, and even funnily pulled his legs.
While Rohit posted a funny image, Sehwag went a step further and said the Indian cricketer got inspired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call to turn a disaster into an opportunity.

Meanwhile, Rohit and Chahal will be seen in action in the 13th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) which is all set to be played from September 19 to November 10 in the UAE. While Rohit will lead the defending champions Mumbai Indians, Chahal will play for Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
The Indian cricket team was last seen in action during their tour of New Zealand in February this year after which the BCCI suspended all the series and tournaments including IPL 2020 in March due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
