India and Rajasthan Royals spinner Yuzvendra Chahal gave a smart response to former Indian cricketer and expert Aakash Chopra on Twitter. The former Indian batter had taken to the micro-blogging site and written that a 100+ metre six should be counted as 8 runs. However, the Indian leg-spinner, who is very active on social media platforms, gave a perfect reply to Chopra.

The 31-year-old replied on the post writing that three dot balls should be considered as a wicket. The leg-spinner is very active on the social media platforms and has recently been involved in a fun banter with his Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Rajasthan Royals on social media.

Taking the conversation forward, Aakash Chopra also came up with a prompt reply saying that a bowler should be allowed to bowl an extra over if he manages to pick a three-wicket haul. “Three wickets in a spell should allow the bowler to bowl an extra over. also, Imagine someone trying to hit you for a 100-metre six (because it’s an 8), good chance that he’ll lose shape…risk-reward,” his tweet read.

The 31-year-old was bought by RR in the IPL 2022 mega auction, after his previous franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore decided not to retain him. Surprisingly, the Red Army didn’t even bid for the leg-spinner in the auction. Talking about Chahal’s numbers in the IPL, he has played a total of 116 matches in which he has scalped 144 wickets at an average of 21.84. He bowls at an outstanding economy of 7.56.

Meanwhile, his franchise RR have had a perfect start to IPL 2022. The Royals have won both their previous encounters, beating Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad. The franchise is sitting on top of the table with four points and have an excellent net run-rate of +2.100.

The Royals have put on a dominant show in their previous matches. Skipper Sanju Samson, Jos Butler, Shimron Hetmyer, Ravichandran Aswhin and Chahal are in excellent form as they look to continue their winning momentum. The leg-spinner has also picked up five wickets in two matches so far.

The former IPL champions will take on RCB in their third match of the tournament. The match will be played at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai on April 5 (Tuesday).
