India batsman Suryakumar Yadav hilariously trolls leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal during an Instagram Live session. The Mumbai Indians batsman reveals that Chahal has often asked for a bat from him.

Suryakumar Yadav, who recently shined on his international T20I debut innings with a splendid half-century against England, said that he had joked with the Royal Challengers Bangalore spinner about his slim and thin physique, and question whether Chahal would be even able to wield the heavy bat properly. But he then promised he will give the spinner one of his bats.

“He has been asking for a bat from me but my bat is slightly heavy, I have told him so many times-‘You’re so thin, how will you use this heavy bat.’ But yes, I will have to tell him that the next time we meet, I will certainly present him with my bat,” Suryakumar Yadav said while interacting with MI on his social media page.

He reveals he has been working with former cricketer Parthiv Patel in the nets to improve on the bowling front as well, in order to be prepared when asked in the game.

Why is he always behind my bowling? No, I have not stopped bowling, I keep bowling in the nets. Whenever I get an opportunity to bowl in the game I will be there. Parthiv bhai don’t worry you will see me bowling soon!” Suryakumar Yadav revealed.
