Yuzvendra Chahal Shares a Glimpse of Narendra Modi Stadium, Says Cannot Wait to Represent India here

Leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is all set for the T20I series against England, starting March 12. Chahal, who represented Haryana in the Vijay Hazare Trophy and the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy recently, entered Team India’s bio-bubble ahead of the much-anticipated series, underway in Ahmedabad.

He recently got an opportunity to train at the newly-refurbished Narendra Modi Stadium on Wednesday. Sharing a glimpse of the world’s largest cricket stadium, the 30-year-old said that he enjoyed the practice session at the stadium and cannot wait to represent his country in the upcoming series. India coach Ravi Shastri watched closely as the spinner got busy training during the net session.

Sharing the video on his Twitter handle, Chahal wrote, “Loved bowling at the beautiful Narendra Modi Stadium. Can’t wait to wear the blues again and represent #TeamIndia. Looking forward to the series.”
