WATCH: Yuzvendra Chahal Hits Tabraiz Shamsi as Two Spinners Share Light Moment During 2nd T20I

Team India registered a sensational 16-run win over South Africa in the second T20I to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series. In the high-scoring thriller batters from both teams impressed many with their power-hitting ability as the bowlers had a tough time in humid conditions at Barsapara Cricket Stadium, Guwahati.

The match also witnessed a light moment when Yuzvendra Chahal entered the ground with the drinks during the second innings as he kicked South Africa’s Tabraiz Shamsi. It was after the first ball of the second over when Shami was also in the middle with drinks for his teammates Aiden Markram and Quinton de Kock.

The video of the incident went viral when Chahal hit his knee on Shamsi’s back deliberately as the two leg-spinners shared a light moment.
