Post Yuzi Chahal Threat, Ravindra Jadeja Pulls His Cheek To Belittle Him In Viral Video

Already struggling in the ongoing second ODI against West Indies on the back of losing half the side after being asked to bat first, India spinner Yuzvendra Chahal made sure to keep the next batter in all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja in a happy space by providing him some entertainment in his own inimitable style.

Jadeja was all padded-up to leave for the field of play at the Kensington Oval as batter Sanju Samson (9) was dismissed in the 25th over. However, rain gods decided to make their presence felt in the form of a drizzle soon after to bring about a slight delay in the match proceedings.

Despite not being part of the Playing XI for the second time in a row, Chahal decided to have some fun with Jadeja as the duo stood near the staircase in front of the dressing room. A prankster of the highest order, Chahal, donning a pair of shades, seemed to threaten the southpaw while bearing a serious look on his face.

With raindrops descending down, Chahal and Jadeja were seen interacting with each other as if involved in the shoot of a movie scene. With the latter busy fixing an issue with his helmet, Chahal, in all seriousness, is confronting him in an apparent threatening manner.

While Jadeja is seen listening to his words patiently for a second or two, he suddenly bursts into laughter to one of his so-called threatening remark. Unconvinced by his acting skills or his perceivable cautionary word, Jadeja pulled Chahal’s left cheek as if to suggest how funny he might have sounded, especially with those sunglasses on.

Post the cheek pulling, Chahal could not help but smile at himself and his theatrics along with Jadeja, leaving for the dressing room thereafter as the viral video ended.

When Chahal Emulated Jadeja’s Sword Celebration In Rajasthan Royals Nets

A fun-loving character in the truest sense, Chahal has been appreciated and, sometimes even trolled, by fans for exhibiting this side of his personality trait. Over a year ago, during Indian Premier League 2022, he was recorded emulating Jadeja’s famous sword celebration.

In a video posted by his team Rajasthan Royals on Twitter, the 33-year-old walks out of the practice nets by swirling his bat akin a sword (from 01:32 minutes), in a manner Jadeja does after completing a century or a half-century.

Extremely proud of his non-existent batting prowess, Chahal also hilariously chirped to Royals’ batter Jos Buttler about him being jealous of the ability he (Chahal) has after having realized of a potential competitor for the opening slot.
