India vs Australia 2018: A day ahead of the start of the much-awaited India tour of Australia, spinner Yuzvendra Chahal posted a video of him working out in the gym and instantly got trolled by Chris Gayle. It was quite hilarious as Chahal is thin and he is the last person you expect to hit the gym. Fans urged the ace spinner to consume but Gayle came up with the most hilarious response. Gayle simply wrote, “Lord help me, please.”
The two cricketers share a good bond as they were once part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore outfit in the cash-rich Indian Premier League.
Chahal captioned the workout video as, “Trying to UP the game down under #stayahead #IndvsAus.”
Meanwhile, BCCI announced a 12-man squad for the 1st T20I at Brisbane and Chahal has been named in the squad.
India 12-Man Squad: Virat Kohli (C), Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma (vc), KL Rahul, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Rishabh Pant, Krunal Pandya, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Khaleel Ahmed and Yuzvendra Chahal.
Chahal in all probability will give company to Kuldeep Yadav in the XI and would be expected to play a key role in the middle overs.
In a bid to assert themselves as favourites for the Test series, which starts December 6 in Adelaide, India would be hoping to dominate the three T20Is. The touring side has won its previous seven T20I series dating back to November 2017, and its last defeat in the format was against West Indies in July last year.
