Just a day after leading India to a thumping series win over Australia in the three-match ODI series, Rohit Sharma decided to have some fun on social media. And once again, the India opener decided to have the fun at the expense of Yuzvendra Chahal. Rohit Sharma, on Sunday, scored a brilliant century as India beat Australia by seven wickets in the series-decider.
With Shikhar Dhawan injured, the onus was on Rohit to deliver and the right-handed batsman duly obliged. He scored 119 and added a century-plus stand with captain Virat Kohli as India chased down 287 with ease. The Men in Blue crossed the finishing line in just the 48th over. Rohit was awarded the Man of the Match award for his stunning knock.

After his match-winning knock, Rohit Sharma took to Twitter to speak about the series win. He, however, other intentions as he posted a hilarious collage of Chahal and Hollywood actor and ex-WWE wrestler Dwayne Johnson, popularly known as the Rock. Rohit Sharma tweeted a photo of wrestler and actor Dwayne Johnson along with a shirtless picture of Chahal and wrote: “Best picture I saw today. India wins the series but someone else takes the headlines. Bravo!!”

Chahal was quick to reply to the tweet. But just like others, he too could not control his laughter as he simply replied by writing “The rock” along with a flurry of emojis.

This is not the first time Rohit Sharma trolled Chahal over his muscles. A few weeks ago, Rohit had hilariously trolled Chahal during an episode of Chahal TV. The spinner had asked Rohit the secret behind his power that help him to clear the ropes so easily and frequently. In reply, Rohit had said: “You don’t need muscles to hit sixes” before Chahal interrupted him saying “So I can hit them too?”
“Yeah, of course, you can, but you have good muscles,” Rohit said before asking him to flaunt his thin biceps. Both Rohit and Chahal, meanwhile, will soon leave for New Zealand for the upcoming series. India will play five T20Is, three ODIs and three Tests in New Zealand.
