Watch: Yuzvendra Chahal Rolls on the Floor Like Neymar Jr
Team India started off their One-day International leg of the tour of England on Thursday (June 12). The first ODI is currently underway at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham. The match is currently hanging in the balance.
However, the Indian wrist spinners have already made an impact even in the 50-over format. It was Virat Kohli, who won the toss for India and put the hosts in. The trend has been chasing in England and the teams chasing won all the three matches in the T20I series.
England was in for early trouble when speedster Umesh Yadav had Jonny Bairstow in trouble when the latter faced the final delivery of the opening over.
Interestingly, the ball came back sharply and struck his pads. The on-field umpire ruled it in favour of the home team. It looked close but Kohli and his men decided to go against the review.
However, replays showed that the ball would have cannoned on to the top of the leg-stump.
The openers got off to a great start and shared a 70-run stand. However, Kuldeep Yadav wrecked havoc and turned the match on its head with a superb spell of bowling in the middle overs.
From 72 for no loss, England was reduced to 81 for three. It was some superb piece of bowling by Kuldeep and the English batters were left bamboozled by the variation from chinaman.
Meanwhile, after the four quick wickets, England settled down well with Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes sharing an important partnership. It was during the process of final delivery of the 28th over that Yuzvendra Chahal injured himself as a throw from Hardik Pandya hit into his back part of the knee. He clutched on to his leg and rolled on the floor for a couple of times.
Chahal rolls like Neymar:
Now, rolling on the turf reminds all of us about ace Brazilian football Neymar Jr who is a striker. In the ongoing FIFA World Cup, Neymar has come in for stern criticism from former players due to his overacting.
In one of the matches, Neymar rolled in the ground for several times after apparently sustaining an injury. Several memes went viral on his rolling and Chahal almost replicated it in the first ODI.
