Yuzvendra Chahal is a pure entertainer, and none can debate about that. While he entertains his fans with his performances on the field, he does it with mischievous behaviour off it. He is also a proven prankster and loves to indulge in out-of-the-box activities with his teammates. This time Chahal decided to challenge his Rajasthan Royals teammate Shimron Hetmyer for a wrestling match.
During RR's pre-match practice session ahead of their game against Kolkata Knight Riders, Chahal was seen wrestling with Hetmyer. In a viral video, Chahal is seen holding Hetmyer by his legs while the latter tries to free himself. "WWE Universal Championship between Yuzi Chahal and Shimron Hetmyer," wrote a user while sharing the video.
Chahal beats Kolkata batters
While one may not know the result of the wrestling match between Yuzvendra Chahal and Shimron Hetmyer, the match-up between Chahal and KKR batters that night was won by Chahal by a fine margin. The leg-spinner not only took wickets but tool loads of them. Chahal took a total of five wickets in that game against Kolkata Knight Riders, including a hat-trick.
After being on the expensive side in his first spell, Chahal made a remarkable comeback in his second spell. He turned the game in his team's favor with crucial wickets. The best of it came in his last over on the day where he took four wickets. He started his over with the wicket of Venkatesh Iyer.
He then took the most important wicket of the game, the wicket of KKR captain Shreyas Iyer. Chahal did not stop there. He trapped another batsman with his loopy leg-breaker on the very next delivery. And for his hat-trick, Chahal accounted for Pat Cummins who had won the match for KKR single-handedly against Mumbai Indians. For his heroics, he was also named the 'Player of the Match'.
