If we talk about Yuzvendra Chahal, he is the master of his craft and has always been a very funny character off and on the field. He often indulges in funny banters and trolls his friend for amusement at the same time outclassing even the best of the batsmen with his leg spin. The Indian leg-spinner also mock interviews cricketers after the match on his “Chahal TV” doing fun chatting with the players about their performances.
“Chahal TV” has almost become a trend. After the match, the leg spinner talks with one or two players including his team mates also. This time he has Martin Guptill and Rohit Sharma for interview. Both Martin Guptill and Rohit Sharma were chatting when Yuzvendra Chahal approached them for the interview. But he fell victim of one of the most brutal banters by Martin Guptill.
The scene panned out as Yuzvendra Chahal tried to enter the conversation: What’s up boys, Martin Guptill, unaware of the mic, replied: Hi G**du! and all this slur got recorded on the camera. Rohit Sharma went laughing his lungs out and the video clip soon started trending over the social media. However, all this was a light hearted banter among friendly foes as Guptill immediately hugged Chahal after the slur.
Coming to the India- New Zealand series, Team India won the second match comprehensively to take the lead of 2-0 in a five match series.
New Zealand captain Kane Williamson chose to bat first on a progressively slowing surface with an idea of the putting a strong total. The decision seemed to be a good one till the first power-play of NZ innings as the duo of Martin Guptill and Colin Munro made a steady start.
This time Shardul Thakur was handed the first over of the innings by Indian captain Kohli but it proved to be a costly one as Guptill hit two consecutive sixes off him. After that over Virat Kohli called in Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammad Shami to take a little control over the scoring rate.
Except the final over of the power-play, which was also bowled by Shardul Thakur, it was all Indian bowlers as Shivam Dube along with Chahal and Jadejaput a led on the run rate in the middle overs along with picking the wickets at regular intervals. New Zealand never got a going and ended up with a below par total of 132 on the board.
In the response, Rohit and Kohli were dismissed by the senior pro Tim Southee. In the middle were again KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer thrown at the deep ends to take them home on a sluggish surface. But the duo showed great maturity between them, with the no score board pressure both of them stitched a steady partnership before unleashing themselves at the end of the chase.
