Following the conclusion of IPL 2023, Indian cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal was recently spotted playing in the lanes of an unidentified city.
India’s passion for cricket is well known. In a variation known to some as “gully cricket,” the game is even played in streets and lanes across the nation. ‘
As players come up with creative ways to score runs, gully cricket has its own joys and challenges. The unconventional rules in the amateur format of gully cricket make it difficult for the batters to score freely, contrary to criticism that international cricket favors batters with helpful rules.
Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal uploaded a video of himself playing cricket with a few cricket fans on Thursday, June 1. In the video, Chahal could be seen playing a few defensive shots as the bowler used an underarm motion.
The spinner’s post was captioned:“The gully Impact player kya bolti (what say) @rajasthanroyals,”.
In response to the video, Indian leg-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was urged to at least hit a six in gully cricket by Afghanistan’s Rashid Khan.
Rashid commented on Chahal’s post, saying “Yahaa to 6 maar de bhai (At least hit a six here brother)”.
Rashid’s amused response from Chahal was to inform him of the strict gully cricket rules.
Hitting six is regarded as being out over here, khan sahib, Chahal retorted.
The second year in a row, Yuzvendra Chahal finished the IPL 2023 season as the leading wicket-taker for the Rajasthan Royals.
After winning the purple cap in the IPL in 2022, Chahal was responsible for 21 dismissals at a 20/57 economy rate and 8/18 in 2023. To become the IPL’s all-time leading wicket-taker, Chahal also surpassed Dwayne Bravo, a former fast bowler for MI and CSK, who had 183 career wickets.
In 144 innings over 11 IPL seasons, Chahal has taken 187 wickets for an economy rate of 7.67.
