Yuzvendra Chahal Trolls BCCI For Letting Rohit Sharma Interview Rishabh Pant
Not a part of India’s T20I squad for the just-concluded series against West Indies, leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal could not help but take a hilarious dig at BCCI. It all started when BCCI handed over Chahal’s post-match duties to his senior teammate Rohit Sharma. A few months ago, Chahal started his very popular Chahal TV where he interviews the top performers from the match.
But after India’s last outing, Rohit Sharma took the duty. The India opener interviewed youngster Rishabh Pant after the latter’s impressive knock in the third T20I against West Indies. Rohit asked the youngster about his performance in the entire series and how he managed to bounce back after two poor innings.
After failing to deliver in the first two innings, Pant hit a match-winning 65 not out off 42 balls as India thrashed West Indies by seven wickets.

Seeing his duties being performed by Rohit, Yuzvendra Chahal, obviously referring to his ‘Chahal TV’ replied, “Missing me @BCCI.

Talking about the game, India beat the West Indies by seven wickets to win the series 3-0. Bowling first, India restricted West Indies to 146 for 6. Deepak Chahar was the destructor-in-chief early on as he sent back Evin Lewis, Sunil Narine and Shimron Hetmyer inside the fourth over to leave West Indies reeling at 14 for 3. A 66-run stand between Nicholas Pooran and Kieron Pollard stopped the rot before the former fell to Navdeep Saini.

Pollard went on to score 58 while Rovman Powell played a quickfire knock of 32 to helpWest Indies post a respectable total. But the score was just not enough for West Indies to challenge India. India lost their openers – Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul early – but fifties from Virat Kohli and Rishabh Pant saw them cross the finishing line with ease.
