The Indian cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal who has also earned the tag of part-time TikToker celebrated his 30th birthday yesterday. He has become an important part of the Indian squad since his debut in 2016, especially in the shorter formats. His track record has been quite impressive as he is the first Indian bowler (Men’s) to take a 5-wicket haul in T20I and he is also the fastest Indian bowler who took 50 wickets in T20Is. He is also the 2nd bowler who has taken 6-wicket haul in ODIs and T20Is.
Yuzi is also known for his wittiness and good sense of humour which is visible in his online banters with other cricketers. He also runs a show on BCCI TV in which he interviews his teammates and gives an update to the Indian cricket fans of what is happening in the dressing room.
Talking about Chahal’s TikTok videos, the cricketer used to post clips on the video platform on a regular basis and in some of the videos, his family members also participated with him. Though he was slammed by many including his teammate Rohit Sharma for making his father dance in the video, it did not have any effect on him and he kept on posting videos. However, now he can’t post videos on TikTok as the Indian government has banned the app along with 58 other Chinese apps citing national security concerns.
The micro-blogging site Twitter was flooded with tweets offering birthday wishes to the Indian leggie and some of them were really quirky. The former Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh calls Yuzi Mr. Chuha and wishes that he gains some weight. On the other hand, Yuzi’s teammate and friend Rohit Sharma calls him GOAT while offering birthday wishes.
Here are some selected tweets:
Na koi bach sake uske Cha(h)al se chahe ho Chess ♟ ka game ya Cricket 🏏 ka maidan. 🏟

Yuzi will be playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL 2020 which is going to take place in UAE from Sept 19 till Nov 8. RCB is led by Virat Kohli and the team is often targeted by trollers as it hasn’t been able to win an IPL title, not even once, despite having a star-studded team in most of the seasons.
