India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has been notoriously famous for pulling pranks against other players over the years. Once again, he did one of his mischievous acts during the second T20I between India and South Africa. Chahal hasn’t played a game during the series. However, this hasn’t let him deter from his usual habits. During the Proteas innings, the light went off which forced a break.
While the players were making sure their water intake is right, the Jind-born player decided to kick on the opposition players. It is to be noted that it was done on a lighter note. Even though it is not which player was, one can say that Chahal and the player know each other well. The video that surfaced on social media isn’t clear after all. Meanwhile, the clip has been going viral on social media.

Talking about the game, India won their first-ever bilateral series against the Greem Brigade at home. Batting first, the Men In Blue had a dream time as they scored 237/3. Openers KL Rahul and skipper Rohit Sharma stitched a partnership of 96 runs in just 9.5 overs. The latter scored 43 while Rahul scored 28-ball 57. With this inning, KL managed to shut down the critics questioning his strike rate.
After the duo’s wickets, former skipper Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav stitched a match-winning partnership of 102 runs. The latter scored his fifty in just 18 balls, equaling Rahul’s record in international T20. The right-hander scored 61 off 22 balls with five sixes and as many fours. On the other hand, Kohli remained unbeaten on 49 off 28 balls. Dinesh Karthik played a cameo of 17 runs off seven balls.
In reply, the Temba Bavuma-led side had a poor start as they could only 70/3 in the first 10 overs. The likes of Quinton de Kock (69*) and David Miller (106*) tried well but their side fell short by 16 runs. The last game of the series will be played on October 4 in Indore.
