Yuzvendra Chahal is keeps track of what his teammates are up to on social platforms. This time, the leg break bowler took a friendly jibe at all-rounder Kedar Jadhav after the cricketer posted a celebratory tweet post India’s win in the first one-day game against South Africa.
Rolled my arm over in our win against South Africa yesterday! I love bowling in the middle overs. Great spells from @yuzi_chahal & @imkuldeep18! And excellent knocks from @imVkohli and @ajinkyarahane88 to go 1-0 up.. Good start to the series! #SAvIND #TeamIndia #BleedBlue pic.twitter.com/SOoynLswXC

Bit like the great Sachin Tendulkar, Jadhav has earned a reputation of the man with the golden arm. He has been the sixth bowling option for India in the limited over formats for quite some time now. Whenever the skipper entrust him to pick wickets, he gets the breakthrough for the team.
Rohit doesn’t let go of him
This is not the first time of him getting trolled for the strange bowling action. Rohit, in particular, has thrown banters at Jadhav on more than one occasion.
Here’s Hitman making comparisons
Kedar Jadhav, an attacking middle-order batsman, has become integral part of Team India. It is the skill in off-spin that has given him a semblance of security as an Indian player. As of now, Kedar Jadhav has picked 16 ODI wickets in 20 innings he has bowled in, at a bowling average of just over 30.
