India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was at it again with his self-deprecating humour over his batting prowess. The Haryana-born took to Twitter on the eve of the third T20I at Seddon Park, Hamilton and posted a collage featuring India captain Virat Kohli, wicketkeeper-batsman KL Rahul and Chahal himself. All the three are playing the uppercut or the ramp shot. Also Read - Virat Kohli is Looking After Groundsmen to a Certain Degree: Andrew Strauss Slams Indian Captain For Defending Motera Pitch
During a practice session in the past, Chahal was trying to fine-tune that shot. He posted a picture of that on Instagram. Now, he has pulled that from his archive and weaved this joke around it. Chahal is a lower-order batsman unlike Virat Kohli and KL Rahul, who are top-order batters.

Chahal captioned the post as, “When they are trying to copy my shot. Not bad keep it up youngsters”. Also Read - Virat Kohli Come Out And Defended Motera Wicket as if it's a BCCI Thing: Alastair Cook
The roast backfired as Chahal got roasted himself for the post. Here is how fans reacted:
Not long back, New Zealand opener Martin Guptill used Hindi cuss word on the Indian leggie in a jovial mood after the second T20I at Eden Park, Auckland and the act grabbed eyeballs.
In the series thus far, he has not lived up to the expectations but will look to contribute in the remaining games. In the series-opener, he picked up one wicket for 32 runs while in the second game, he went wicketless for 33 runs.
The fourth match will then be played on Friday in Wellington and the final T20I will be played on February 2 in Mount Maunganui.
