Overall these years, Yuzvendra Chahal has not just proved his worth as one of the most talented bowlers but he has also gained a cult following for his swag, attitude and witty interview skills.
Yes, we are talking about the ‘Chahal TV’, which has become the favorite of his fans because of the way he puts his participants on the spot. And this time it was the turn of middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer and the one making his debut today, Shivam Dube.
Beginning with the interview, Chahal first introduced the duo from Mumbai however he realized that both the players are taller than him. Therefore, he pulled up a chair from behind the camera and stood on it, saying, “Now it is fine or else these two will make my back hurt.”
Shivam Dube, who is all set to make his International debut today, was asked about his thoughts on the same. To which he replied:
“I just want to continue performing well. I am playing for the country now so it is a very proud moment. There will be more eyes on me and so I need to work hard and continue the good work,”
Shivam Dube first came into limelight when he smashed veteran spinner Pravin Tambe for five sixes in an over during a domestic tournament in Mumbai. He repeated the same knock in the 2018 season of the Ranji Trophy.
Yuzvendra then asked Shreyas Iyer, who was the captain during the Ranji Trophy that who hits bigger sixes among the two. To which Iyer said the all-rounder hits bigger sixes than him.
Well, it was those 5 sixes that paved for him to land up with Rs 5 Crore contract with the Royal Challengers Bangalore for IPL 2019. Talking about the same five sixes, Chahal asked Shreyas what did he say to Dube that he went on to shellack five sixes. To which he replied:
“We told him before the day started that today your price will increase in the auction only if you hit six sixes in an over. So then he ended up scoring a hundred and hit five consecutive sixes in that innings. Tabi jaake usko paanch khokha mila (Only then did he end up getting Rs 5 crore),”
Chahal then proceeded to ask Dube “So if you had hit six sixes in six balls you would have got six crore?”
Here, watch the video of the hilarious conversation between the three :
