Yuzvendra Chahal, the Indian leg-spin bowler, is currently in Australia for India’s upcoming ODI and T20I series. The tweaker is currently in Sydney where the Men in Blue are quarantining and training ahead of their international fixtures. The players reached Sydney after a gruelling campaign in the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) that ended on November 10.
Chahal has been a key component of India’s limited-overs teams and a lot would be expected of him in the upcoming fixtures as well. The 30-year-old is busy training his heart out before the opening ODI on November 27 at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Recently, he posted a picture where he was cycling with Rishabh Pant. Kuldeep Yadav, Chahal’s spin partner, was standing in the middle.

In the meantime, Sri Lankan fast bowler Isuru Udana poked fun at Chahal. The southpaw replied to Chahal and wrote, “bro, the seat is too high for you.”

Dhanashree Verma, Chahal’s fiancée, also trolled him. She replied to Chahal and wrote, “Kahaan pohchi aapki savaari.” Back in August, the duo got engaged and shred adorable pictures on social media.
Yuzvendra Chahal and Udana’s journey in IPL 2020
Both Chahal and Udana were a part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the IPL. In his very first game against the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium, Chahal became the Player of the Match. The spinner picked up three wickets and helped Virat Kohli’s Challengers make a comeback from a stage when the Sunrisers looked firm favourites.
Chahal was the standout spinner in the tournament, along with Rashid Khan. He picked up 21 wickets from 15 matches, though RCB couldn’t progress beyond the Eliminator where SRH beat them at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium. Udana, on the other hand, played 10 matches. But he couldn’t make much of an impact as he picked up only eight wickets at an economy rate of 9.72.
It also happened to be Udana’s maiden stint in the IPL. For RCB, their dream of winning their maiden IPL trophy remained unfulfilled. Kohli, their skipper, was also a tad rusty when it came to performing with the bat in hand.
