India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal recently partied with social media influencer Orhan Awatramani, popularly known as Orry. Chahal shared the picture of his with Orry and captioned it, “Long lost brothers.” The netizens were quick to react to the pictures shared by the spinner and soon the comment box was flooded with messages. “Are yuzi bhai ye kis line me aa gaye aap… (Yuzi brother, which line have you joined?),” wrote a fan. “Looks like you guys are siblings,” wrote another fan on the pictures that have gone viral on social media.

“Chalo ek or mil gaya isko (He has got another one)”, “Ye kya kar rhe ho yuzi paaji (What are you doing Yuzi brother?)” and “Unfollow krne chala (Going to unfollow)” were some of the other comments on the post.
Yuzvendra Chahal is still one of the best wrist spinners in world cricket but will have to wait for his opportunity as Kuldeep Yadav is an improved white ball exponent now, former Proteas lead spinner Imran Tahir recently reckoned.
Tahir felt left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep was able to grab the opportunities that came along his way. Chahal, one of the finest leg-break bowlers, is currently out of favour as he wasn’t selected for last year’s ODI World Cup in India and is unlikely to make it to the Indian squad for the T20 WC in the West Indies and the USA in June.
“I don’t think Yuzi was dropped because he wasn’t performing. He was bowling really well but it was just that Kuldeep was bowling really well and he went a step forward and formed this combination with Ravindra Jadeja,” Tahir told PTI during a select interaction.
“I believe he is one of the best leg- spinners in world cricket and would need to wait for his chance. So, it’s not because of his performance but just that the other guy has grabbed his opportunity. I have no doubt he will bounce back,” Tahir, who took nearly 300 international wickets across formats for South Africa with his leg-spin, opined.
