Yuzvendra Chahal recently had a stint in New Zealand for the ODI and T20I series. In the shorter format, he didn’t have the greatest of times and bowled without much luck. In five matches, the Haryana leg-spinner could churn out only three wickets from seven matches. He never went in excess of 10 runs per over though on tracks which were excellent for batting.

In the ODI series, he played only the last couple of matches. In the opening game at the Seddon Park in Hamilton, Kuldeep was preferred ahead of Chahal. But the former was taken for runs at an alarming rate after which Chahal was preferred. Albeit the Men in Blue lost all their games, it was Chahal, who was thought to pose some threat to the in-form opposition batsmen.

Both in Auckland and Mount Maunganui, Chahal picked up three wickets each. To his dismay, he didn’t get much support from the others. His next assignment should be the ODI series versus South Africa in March. Amidst his break time, Chahal decided to put up a cheeky post on Instagram.

He uploaded a picture of his in the Indian jersey on 14th February Valentine’s Day. He captioned the picture and wrote “Woh bulati hain par jaane kaa nahi (Let her call, but don’t go)”

Here is Chahal’s post

In the meantime, Chris Gayle, the West Indies batsman, decided to have some fun with Chahal. Both of them used to play for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Gayle replied to Chahal’s post and wrote, ‘Wtf (surprise emoji)’.

As far as Gayle is concerned, he hasn’t played any cricket ever since the 2019-20 edition of the Bangabandhu Bangladesh Premier League (BPL). There he plied his trade for the Chattogram Challengers , who made the playoffs, but couldn’t reach the finals of the domestic T20 league.

Gayle has been retained by the Kings XI Punjab (KXIP) to play in the 2020 IPL. The Jamaican moved to the Punjab team in 2018 and has played some quickfire knocks. Even at the age of 40, Gayle feels that he has a few years of cricket left in him.
