Want to be a professional cricketer?
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Indian cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal is spending more time on social media as no matches are scheduled. He has also become famous for his Tiktok videos during the extended break. On Friday, the spinner posted the video of one of his masterpieces with his bowling. The video was of him bowling a perfect delivery to knock over New Zealand batsman Martin Guptill’s off stump.
Chris Gayle took a cheeky dig at Yuzvendra Chahal:
West Indies legend Chris Gayle shared a funny banter with his former Royal Challenger Bangalore’s teammate Chahal. In the video posted by Chahal, Gayle commented “You overstepped the line, No ball!! Umpire.”
Well, the leg-spinner also gave a savage reply to Gayle, commenting “haha uncle still last night effect?”
In the usual conditions, Chahal and Gayle would have faced each other in the 13th edition of the India Premier League. The T20 League has been postponed indefinitely, but the BCCI is planning to rescheduled the IPL later this year if ICC T20 World Cup gets postponed.
Meanwhile, Chris Gayle, who has not played a competitive match since the World Cup 2019, was set to feature in IPL for Kings XI Punjab. The T20 master shifted his base from RCB to KXIP in 2018. So far, he has played 125 IPL matches and scored 4484 runs.
The self-proclaimed universe boss also holds the highest individual record in IPL. In 2013 edition, he was on song and scored unbeaten 175 runs off 66 balls against Pune Warriors. Also, during this innings, he registered the fastest hundred in 33 balls, which is still a record.
The global pandemic has made the future uncertain so nothing can be assured when the IPL or cricket activities in India can restart.
