Apart from Rohit Sharma, the likes of Yuvraj Singh and Shikhar Dhawan also wished the RCB spinner. Dhawan asked the leggie to continue entertaining the team while the 2011-World Cup winner trolled his leg by calling him a ‘chuha’ (mouse).
Meanwhile, players all around the world must brace themselves as Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 is most likely to place later this year as the ICC T20 World Cup has been postponed officially. However, IPL governing council chairman Brijesh Patel has announced that the tournament will take place in UAE amid COVID-19 crisis. As per the tentative schedule, the marquee tournament will be played from September 26 to November 7.
However, Chahal, Rohit and other Indian cricketers might take the field even before IPL as some stakeholders in BCCI want India to play a T20I series against South Africa ahead of the marquee tournament.
