Yuzvendra Chahal calls Rohit Sharma ‘youngster’, check why



Mumbai: Rohit Sharma might be a senior player in the Indian team but when it comes to conducting interviews, he is still behind Yuzvendra Chahal as the wrist-spinner called him a “youngster” .

“Good job by New anchor Rohitaa Sharamaaaa,” Chahal tweeted in response to the video shared by BCCI, before cheekily adding “keep it up youngster”

Rohit interviewed pacers Umesh Yadab and Ishant Sharma after India’s emphatic series win against Bangladesh in the first Day-Night Test at Eden Gardens on Sunday.

his was India 12th consecutive home series victory as they also became the first team ever to complete four successive innings victories in the five-day format. India had won the first rubber by an innings and 130 runs.
