Indian right-arm leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is currently serving a 14-day mandatory quarantine period in Sydney along with other Indian players. Indian team is scheduled to play a three-match ODI and T20I series followed by four-match Border Gavaskar Trophy against Australia, starting from November 27 in Sydney.
Chahal, who is a part of the Indian squad for limited-overs cricket, is quite active on the social networking sites and often posts photos and videos from the training session or his quarantine period. On November 22, Sunday, the 30-year-old shared a picture on his official Instagram handle where he can be seen relaxing after a rigorous training session.

The Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan is also quite active on social media and is often known for making some hilarious comments on the posts by fellow cricketers. Seeing the picture posted by Yuzvendra Chahal, Rashid was left wondering what the former was thinking so deeply.
He raised his query in the comment section as he commented, “Bhai Kya soch rahe ho (Bro, what are you thinking?)”. To this Chahal had a perfect quirky answer as he quickly replied, “Ki kab yeh quarantine khatam hoga (That when will this quarantine end),” he said.
Rashid Khan and Yuzvendra Chahal in IPL 2020
Both the spinners Yuzvendra Chahal and Rashid Khan were recently a part of the just-concluded 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2020) where they had a terrific season with the ball. The two led the charts of taking the most number of scalps among spinners in the T20 Championship.
Playing for IPL franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Yuzvendra Chahal took 21 wickets in 15 fixtures at an economy of 7.08 and average of 19.28, with 3/18 being his best bowling figures in IPL 2020.
Rashid, on the other hand, finished the tournament with 20 wickets under his belt in 16 games at an average of 17.20 and economy rate of 5.37. He represented the 2016 winners Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in IPL 2020 and the figures of his best bowling spell read 3/7.
As far as their teams are concerned, RCB was knocked out of the competition after registering a defeat against SRH in the Eliminator of IPL 2020 while the Orange Army also failed to book a berth in the final as they were outshined by Delhi Capitals in the Qualifier 2.
