Yuzvendra Chahal reacts to Akshar Patel's funny tweet
The classic encounter between Punjab and Rajasthan last night was definitely the nail biting one for the fans. The match went on till the last over with KL Rahul's army loosing the match on the last ball. It seemed as an easy win for PBKS which was eventually snatched by the RR side following Kartik Tyagi's tremendous top class bowling under the pressure.
With 4 runs required of the last six deliveries, Kartik just leaked 1 run and bagged two crucial wicket. The last over was the turn around for the Rajasthan Royals' side. The Pink Army has secured 5th position on the points ladder after yesterday's win.
The last two sides which are left to play their first game of the phase 2 are Sunrisers Hyderabad and Delhi Capitals. Both of these sides will battle against each other at Dubai International Cricket Stadium on 22nd September.
However, the left arm spinner Akshar Patel from the Delhi camp is enjoying his practising period. The cricketer took to his Twitter handle and posted a tweet which had the connection to Yuzvendra Chahal.
Akshar was lying down on the ground in that photo and wrote, "Trying to give some posing competition to Yuzvendra Chahal. How's it bro?" You can watch that Tweet here:
Keep trying kid 🤣🤣— Yuzvendra Chahal (@yuzi_chahal) September 19, 2021
Chahal referred Akshar Patel as 'Kid' in response.
In response to this, the RCB bowler came up with a very funny comment. The leg spinner wrote keep trying kid along with adding two laughing emojis.
The Delhi Capitals' franchise is currently residing at 2nd position on the table with 6 wins out of eight matches during the phase 1. The side also has the positive net run rate beside it's name which will boost the confidence. It would be exciting too see whether Rishabh Pant's franchise will be able to maintain the momentum or not.
