Yuzvendra Chahal is known for his antics on the field and his pranks off the field. He is always ready to pull on his teammates’ legs to have some fun. He often takes it to social media to share these moments with his fans. This time, though, the tables were turned and Chahal was the target of teasing from his colleague Suryakumar Yadav.
The star Indian batter shared an Instagram story photo with his wife Devisha Shetty, teammate Shreyas Iyer, and Chahal’s wife Dhanashree Verma. The Indian leg-spinner was notably missing from the picture. To add to this situation, Suryakumar wrote, “Sorry @yuzi_chahal23, We dint miss you.” The same image has gone viral all over the internet.
Here is Suryakumar Yadav’s Instagram story

Meanwhile, India’s two top players have been rested for the upcoming tour of Zimbabwe. India will play a three-match One-Day International series against Zimbabwe beginning on August 18th. Following that, the Indian team will compete in the crucial Asia Cup 2022, which begins on August 27th.
Chahal and Suryakumar have both been named in India’s 15-man squad for the multi-team event. The two will be very important for the team’s success in the tournament. India will begin its campaign against Pakistan on the 28th of August.
Former Indian cricketer Rohan Gavaskar believes the Indian national T20I team should centre around Suryakumar Yadav. The right-handed batter has risen through the ranks of international cricket in the last year and a half, owing mostly to his gutsy style of play.
Yadav became the sixth Indian cricketer after KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Deepak Hooda, and Harmanpreet Kaur to hit a T20I century earlier this year. Gavaskar suggested the Men in Blue choose the best batting position for Suryakumar.
“You said you can slot Surya at No. 4. I disagree there, Surya doesn’t need to be slotted anywhere. I think this T20 team needs to revolve around Surya. You have got to figure out where is the best you can get out of him, is it at the top of the order, or No. 3 or No. 4, you put him there then,” Gavaskar said, as quoted by India Today.
