Yuzvendra Chahal kicks South African spinner in LIVE game, video goes viral | locust

The T20I clash between India and South Africa in Guwahati on Sunday is sure to go down as a memorable affair. India picked up a 16-point victory in the high-scoring encounter, which saw the Proteas suffer their first T20I series defeat against the Men In Blue on Indian soil. While the win was historic, fans also witnessed a few rare incidents, over which the players had no control.

A snake crawling on the floor momentarily interrupted the piece and that was not all. Much later in the second phase of the match, a floodlight failure forced the game to be paused for almost ten minutes.

While most of the incidents were caught on camera, the one that almost went unnoticed was Yuzvendra Chahal’s amusing antics during the contest. The spinner, who was not part of the playing XI, was seen sharing a lighthearted moment with South African tweaker Tabraiz Shamsi.

In a video that has gone viral on social media, Chahal can be seen playfully kicking Shamsi from behind, while the South African player was engaged in conversation with David Miller and Quinton de Kock.

The two teams will meet on Tuesday evening in the final and third T20I in Indore. Virat Kohli and KL Rahul were rested for the game.

The action will then shift to the 50-over format, which will see Shikhar Dhawan lead a second string unit.
