Ever since Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) revealed their slogan ‘Ee Sala cup namde’ (the cup is ours this year), they have become the eyes of trolls. as everyone knows how they performed. RCB failed to keep their moto with the performance and fans simply trolled them on social media. However, not only players but KL Rahul, the ex-RCB player took a dig at them also in 2018, after he shifted to Kings XI Punjab and they performed pretty well in the IPL. Recently, Yuzvendra Chahal was seen mocking KL Rahul on Instagram live with their famous line and it seemed like the leg-spinner was reminding him of KXIP’s performance.
Unfortunately, despite being performed well in the league stage, Punjab failed to reach the play-off stage in the last two seasons, and KL Rahul’s jibe at RCB somehow backfired. Yuzvendra Chahal, who loves to mock with his teammates, never misses out a chance to have friendly banter with his friends on social media.
Both KL Rahul and Yuzvendra Chahal were part of the recently concluded T20I series against Bangladesh which India convincingly won by 2-1. After scoring 8 and 15 in the first two games, KL Rahul finally opened his arms and shoed his class. He scored a quickfire 35-ball 52 which included seven boundaries after India lost both the openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan very cheaply.
Even, Yuzvendra Chahal too did well in the series. He picked up 1 for 24 and 2 for 28 in the first T20I matches whereas he failed to do good in the third game. He scalped only 1 wicket while conceding 43 runs where Deepak Chahar did some unthinkable. He bagged 6 wickets for mere 7 runs which included a hat-trick.
With this, he became the first Indian male cricketer to register a bowling figure of 6 for 7. Even this is also the best T20I bowling figure in men’s cricket. Currently, India are playing the first Test against Bangladesh in Indore. Following that, both the teams will play their first-ever Day-night Test at Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
