Senior India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has named three big batsmen he’d like to pick in his dream hat-trick. The 31-year-old said that he’d love to dismiss Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and AB de Villiers in his fantasy hat-trick.
Kohli and Sharma are active cricketers with the latter taking over the captaincy reins from the former. The South African, though, retired from IPL cricket last year and from international cricket four years ago.
Speaking with ESPNCricinfo, when asked which batters would constitute his dream hat-trick, Chahal said: “One would be Virat Bhaiya, Rohit Bhaiya, and then I will go with AB Sir if he is playing then definitely him.”
Chahal celebrated his hat-trick in his now-famous stylish meme pose, sliding down on the ground and putting one hand over his hand while laying flat on the ground. This pose first became a meme a couple of years ago.
When asked if he was planning on coming up with a new celebration for a hat-trick or fifer in the upcoming matches, he added: “No, I’ll continue with the one I am doing right now. Because that meme is very close to me. I won’t slide. The meme is of me in a relaxed pose. So I’ll just go and relax and sit.”
