WATCH: Yuzi Chahal quits Irfan, Chopra splits after being asked about Bishnoi falling while bowling, Sports News
The Indian team led by Rohit Sharma won the second and penultimate T20I against West Indies on Friday night (February 18), at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. Invited to beat first, India went 186-5 and defended the score by 8 points despite fireworks from Rovman Powell and Nicholas Pooran.
The game lived up to expectations as Windies hitters Pooran and Powell kept the chase alive until the end before their respective half-centuries were wasted. During the chase, India lost a lot of chances. Ravi Bishnoi and Bhuvneshwar Kumar each lost a hold, while extra points were also awarded to the visitors due to the hosts’ carelessness on the pitch.

Bishnoi gave Pooran a reprieve for bowling Yuzvendra Chahal. For the uninitiated, the former had also hit the boundary line while completing a catch-up of Chahal’s delivery in the series opener. Thus, broadcasters Irfan Pathan and Aakash Chopra interacted with Chahal after the second T20I, where the former reminded Chahal of the commissioning of Bishnoi.
When Irfan asked “where is Bishnoi taking you to dinner”, Yuzi Chahal left the former all-rounder, Chopra and other presenters in the split saying, “first of all, I’m going to take him to the corner”. Here is the video:

During the post-match presentation, Rohit also gave his thoughts on the pitch for India and told broadcasters: “We were a bit sloppy on the pitch. A bit disappointed with that. The game would have been different if we had taken those catches.”
