Chris Gayle and Yuzvendra Chahal have been teammates for quite some time at the Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Hence, it isn’t much of a surprise that the duo shares a healthy relationship off the field as well. The due is regularly seen engaging in friendly banter on Social Media, more so because of the ongoing coronavirus crisis which has made cricketers spend maximum time on the Internet.
Recently, Chahal uploaded a clip from India’s third ODI against New Zealand at the Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui back in February 2020. Though the Men in Blue were eventual losers of the contest, Chahal had a decent day as he picked up Martin Guptill, Kane Williamson and James Neesham’s wickets. The delivery to get rid of the dangerous Guptill, who was batting on 66, was just world class.
Chahal pitched the ball around middle that turned sharply past Guptill’s bat. The batsman played down the wrong line and saw his stumps shattered. It also ended the 106-run opening stand between Guptill and Henry Nicholls.
Chahal captioned the video and wrote:
“This feeling 🇮🇳🇮🇳 #specialone,”

Gayle never misses a chance to troll his buddies and he was never letting this one go by. The legendary West Indian opener said that the spinner had overstepped the front-line and a no-ball should have been called. The 40-year-old Jamaican-born replied to Chahal and wrote,
“You overstepped the line, No ball!!! Umpire.”
Chahal hilariously replied to Gayle and wrote,
“@chrisgayle333 haha uncle still last night effect?”
