Yuzvendra Chahal, a spinner for the Indian cricket team, posted a funny image of his teammate Kuldeep Yadav on Instagram as the two were on their way to Indore for the third one-day international match against New Zealand.
The two spinners are good friends, and on Sunday, Chahal used one of the filters available on the social networking platform to make Kuldeep look like a woman.
The picture elicited funny responses from users of social media platforms, and Chahal also tagged the Instagram story “Travel Partner,” which caused a lot of people to be puzzled for a while.
At the second one-day international match, which took place in Raipur on Saturday, the hosts India cruised to an eight-wicket victory over the visiting New Zealand batting line-up to win the three-game series. India’s relentless pace attack mowed through a weak batting lineup.
After being bowled out for a paltry 108, New Zealand’s innings was ended by an aggressive effort headed by Mohammed Shami, who was followed by India’s knocking off the runs in 20.1 overs.
Shubman Gill remained unbeaten after scoring 40 runs off 53 bowling deliveries, while Rohit Sharma scored a magnificent 50 from 51 balls.
Due to the fact that the game was over so quickly, the sea of fans that had travelled to the remotely located Shaheed Veer Narayan Singh Stadium for Raipur’s first international game were left wanting for more despite the resounding victory that their team had earned.
After Rohit made the decision to bowl first, Shami (3/18) and Mohammed Siraj (1/10) both delivered high-quality seam bowling that made life difficult for the batters, bringing New Zealand’s score down to a miserable 15 for five.
Even though the Indian openers made batting look easy in the evening, the New Zealand hitters had a more difficult time since the odd ball halting made their work more difficult.
On Tuesday, the third and final one-day international will take place in Indore.
The following individuals have been selected to represent India in one-day international matches against New Zealand: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Ishan Kishan (wicketkeeper), Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, KS Bharat (wicketkeeper), Hardik Pandya (vice-captain), Rajat Patidar, Washington Sundar, Shahbaz Ahmed, Shardul Thakur, Yuzvendra Chahal
