Yuzvendra Chahal and Joe Root have formed a strong camaraderie while plying their trades for the Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023. Unfortunately, their journey came to an end after the team was eliminated in the group stage. To celebrate their friendship, Rajasthan created a heartfelt montage video of Chahal and Root, accompanied by Kishore Kumar’s popular track “Chala Jaata Hoon,” and shared it on Twitter.
The caption expressed the team’s sentiment, stating, “We are going to miss these two.” Chahal, clearly touched by the gesture, retweeted the video from his personal Twitter handle, adding three heart emojis.
