Rajasthan Royals (RR) spinner Yuzvendra Chahal created history as he became the leading wicket-taker in the Indian Premier League (IPL), overtaking former Chennai Super Kings (CSK) star Dwayne Bravo. After his heroic performance in the middle, Chahal had a chat with former India stars like Harbhajan Singh, S Sreesanth, and Mohammad Kaif where Bhajji’s admitted to being missing one particular action from the RR spinner.
During the chat on Star Sports, Harbhajan told Chahal that he is missing his iconic pose, prompting the Tubanator and all others around him to recreate the pose in the studio, sending everyone, including Chahal, into hysteria. Seeing those in the studio creating his pose, Chahal also did the same on the ground. Here’s the video:
