“I knw bhaiya u missing me coz u not here so don’t be jealous next pic soon with you,” Chahal wrote.
The banter between the two left fans in splits, with one even calling Rohit the “Zlatan of cricket”, referring to the outspoken Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Chahal and Iyer are currently in New Zealand for the ongoing ODI series. India lost the first two ODIs, despite Iyer scoring a century in the first and a half-century in the second match and will be looking to salvage some pride when they take on the hosts at Mount Maunganui on Tuesday.
Rohit Sharma, who was part of India’s 5-0 T20I series sweep of New Zealand, was ruled out of the ODI and Test series with a calf injury.
Rohit and Chahal share a close bond and often pop up in each other’s posts on social media. The two have also had some hilarious banter on the leg-spinner’s post-match chat show ‘Chahal TV’.
