Yuzvendra Chahal, on Monday, came up with yet another stunning performance as Royal Challengers Bangalore thrashed Kolkata Knight Riders to register their fifth win of the season in seven games. This is the first time RCB have won five of their opening seven games.
It was a clinical performance from the Virat Kohli-led side. Batting first, the Bangalore-based outfit posted 194 for 2 in the allotted 20 overs. At one stage, it looked like they would finish around 150 before AB de Villiers came up with a batting masterclass.
The former South Africa skipper played an unbeaten knock of 73 from just 33 balls to guide his team to the big total. His knock was studded with five fours and six maximums. De Villiers also shared an unbeaten 100-run stand with Kohli who remained unbeaten on 33.
The bowlers then did even better by restricting KKR to 112 for 9. Yuzvendra Chahal was the star of the show, conceding just 12 runs off his four overs while dismissing Dinesh Karthik. The likes of Washington Sundar and Chris Morris did well with the ball too.
Yuzvendra Chahal and Yuvraj engaged in banter:
After the match ended, Yuzvendra Chahal and his former India and IPL teammate Yuvraj Singh were involved in a funny banter on Twitter. It all started when the leg-spinner took to Twitter to laud the team effort for the comprehensive win over KKR.
“No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it. Great team effort tonight,” wrote the RCB star.

Yuvraj Singh was quick to reply and as usual, he tried to pull the spinner’s legs by tweeting:
“Tu kisi ko nahi marne de raha ! Lagta hai maidan par vapas aana padega ! Great spell Yuzi top class (which roughly translates to: You are not letting anyone hit. Looks like, I need to return to the field.)”
Tu kisi ko nahi marne de raha ! Lagta hai maidan par vapas aana padega 😜! Great spell Yuzi top class 👊🏽

Chahal then concluded the exchange by stating that he recalls the game when Yuvraj had hit him for three consecutive sixes while playing for Mumbai Indians.
I still remember 3 balls 3 sixes bhaiya 🙈🙈
