Kuldeep Yadav trolled by Jasprit Bumrah: The Indian chinaman bowler was recently trolled by his fellow cricketers on Instagram.
Commercial endorsements are nothing new to the game of cricket. While a handful of cricketers (generally the most successful in a team) used to get these endorsements in the past, things have changed drastically in the contemporary times.
There is no hiding to the fact that the emergence of social media has increased such opportunities for not just cricketers but other sports persons as well.
Among a recent cricketer who has uploaded an advertisement on his official Instagram handle is chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav. The 24-year old cricketer was promoting a personal care brand on his Instagram account.
Kuldeep Yadav trolled by Jasprit Bumrah, Suresh Raina and Yuzvendra Chahal
Just as Yadav uploaded the video yesterday, there were a lot of comments from both his fans and fellow cricketers. Among the second lot were fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah, senior batsman Suresh Raina and leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.
All the three cricketers posted hilarious comments on Yadav’s post. Being a sport, Yadav didn’t shy away from replying to all the three comments. While Bumrah inquired about Yadav’s entry into a different field, both Raina and Chahal posted funny emojis in their respective comments.
As far as the sport is concerned, Yadav last played for India during the ODI series in West Indies last month. Both him and Chahal aren’t part of India’s T20I squads of late.
On the other hand, Bumrah is currently part of the Test team and was seen preparing for the imminent Test series against South Africa in Bengaluru.
