Rajasthan Royals (RR) took to their social media handle to share a rather hilarious video involving Joe Root and spin sensation Yuzvendra Chahal. The incident occurred during the franchise’s recent team travel after their game against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), in which the men in pink registered a comprehensive 9-wicket win at the Eden Gardens on May 11.

Yuzvendra Chahal, who is known for his on and off-field antics, took the internet by storm with yet another hilarious clip making rounds on social media. Since the start of the Royals’ campaign, both Chahal and Root have often been seen enjoying a fun time together as seen earlier wherein the two were hilariously dancing at the franchise’s welcome dinner.

In another rib-tickling video shared by the franchise, the spinner can be seen having a fun ride on Root’s suitcase in the airport. Chahal, who seems to be enjoying the ride, can be heard saying “I’m coming home”.

The 32-year-old leggie eclipsed former CSK fast bowler, Dwayne Bravo to become the highest wicket-taker in the history of the cash-rich league. The landmark came against KKR at the iconic Eden Gardens as Chahal claimed impressive bowling figures of 4/25 in his four overs which took his overall tally to 187 wickets.

In addition to this, Yuzvendra Chahal is also in contention for the IPL Purple Cap as he stands second on the list with 21 wickets in 12 matches at an average economy of just under 8, lacing it with three four-wicket hauls. Meanwhile, Sanju Samson and his men are still in the race for a spot in the playoffs of the competition.
