During the 2nd ODI between India and West Indies, the home side were put to bat first and things did not really go according to the plan for them. Rohit Sharma and Co. struggled in the middle as they could only post a total of 237/9 in 20 overs. Apart from the partnership between Rahul and SKY, there wasn’t much to cherish for the Indian fans in the first innings.

However, Yuzvendra Chahal’s cameo towards the end alongside the hilarious commentary of Harbhajan Singh certainly brought smiles on the faces of cricket lovers. As the Indian tail-ender walked out to bat, Bhajji came up with some rib-tickling comments on air, while taking a hilarious dig at Chahal.

The 41-year-old initially made a sarcastic remark while pointing out that it would be slightly difficult for Chahal to hit a six with those biceps. However, he then claimed that since the player wears a No. 3 jersey (same as Harbhajan), he is like a brother to him and he can actually hit a maximum.

After his co-commentator joined the banter and asked Bhajji if he is aware of how many sixes Yuzi has hit in his career, Harbhajan jokingly stated that he is not sure if he has smashed any but just like him, the leg-spinner might have conceded many sixes.

The comments from Bhajji led to netizens coming up with hilarious tweets on social media, adding to the banter.

Although Chahal could not hit a six, he did steal the show but smashing a glorious boundary in the final over being bowled by Alzarri Joseph. As expected, Harbhajan Singh was delighted as he praised Chahal for his brilliant hit. He said, “Joseph, jo sabse tez gendbaaz hai, unko unhi ke sar ke upar se Sachin Tendulkar ki tarah saamne balla dikhate huye 4 run. Waah, what a shot Yuzvendra!”

After the Chahal boundary, Harbhajan also went on to hilariously claim that Chahal (who scored 11* off 10) belongs to the category of players like Virat Kohli, Sachin Tendulkar and AB de Villiers. He also funnily suggested that Yuzi could now be considered as an all-rounder for franchises in the upcoming mega auction.
