Social media has had a massive impact on our day-to-day lives. Even for cricketers, it acts as a stress-buster and most of them enjoy posting some pictures and their views on various social media platforms. Yuzvendra Chahal is one of the most active cricketers on social media. He has had multiple friendly banters with his teammates and he seems to enjoy his time quite a bit.

After India’s practice session in Vishakhapatnam for the first T20I against Australia, Chahal shared a picture on Twitter with Rohit Sharma and Krunal Pandya sharing a light moment with the leg-spinner. The 28-year-old Haryana lad captioned it as “My reaction when they tell me you’re batting at number 3 tomorrow..”. The story behind the caption might be something to do with Chahal’s batting in New Zealand and his interview with Rohit Sharma on


Chahal was India’s top-scorer in the fourth ODI in New Zealand as he remained unbeaten on 18. In one of the interviews he does on Chahal TV (on, he asked Rohit Sharma who was the stand-in skipper at that time for a promotion in the batting order.
