Yuzvendra Chahal is currently taking part in the IPL for the Rajasthan Royals and is the joint-highest wicket-taker in the tournament with 11 wickets in 6 matches, same number of wickets as Mark Wood and Rashid Khan.
Meanwhile, Chahal’s wife Dhanashree recently wrote an interesting comment on Instagram, mentioning the leg-spinner.
She posted a picture of herself leaning against the wall and captioned it: “When a flower doesn’t bloom you fix the environment in which it grows, not the flower”
This post from the famous dancer and choreographer that is Yuzi’s Wife got a lot of attention and importantly the caption.
Rohit Sharma‘s wife, Ritika Sajdeh, who is a close friend of the Chahal couple also commented, using her wittiness Ritika wrote: “Why are you hugging the wall”
Verma was quick to reply with another funny comment, trolling Chahal, saying that since Yuzi is away, she’d resorted to hugging the wall!
“Recently developed this habit…chahal away for the IPL” replied to Ritika.
See the screenshot of Dhanashree’s post and her hilarious reply:
Yuzvendra Chahal has taken 11 wickets in 6 matches in IPL 2023
Meanwhile, RR Spinner last season’s Purple Cap holder, is once again in the running for the Purple Cap and is the joint-highest wicket-taker in the tournament so far with 11 scalps.
Former England captain and now commentator in the IPL Kevin Pietersen has hailed Yuzvendra for his bowling, and added his shock to the fact that RCB released the leg-spinner, saying he’s become a gift for RR.
32-year-old Chahal has taken 177 IPL wickets, and is only behind Dwayne Bravo’s tally of 183 wickets as the second-highest all-time IPL leading wicket-taker.
“One of the greatest gifts in the history of the IPL is Chahal to the Rajasthan Royals. Absolutely no idea how Bangalore let him go. Always took the wickets, he was the bloke who kept them in the game,” said Pietersen on air during the RR vs LSG game.
“Unbelievable that this bloke is now wearing pink. With the ball he was the most valuable asset for RCB,” he added.
