IPL 2020, MI vs KXIP: Yuzvendra Chahal mocked Yuvraj Singh on Twitter for missing out on Royal Challengers Bangalore in his prediction.
Yuvraj Singh predicted that KXIP will reach the IPL playoffs
Yuzvendra Chahal feels RCB will also qualify
The spinner has grabbed 13 wickets this season
Yuvraj Singh has been pretty active on social media lately, be it for his cheeky replies or his bold tweets. With the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 already having crossed its halfway mark, the former Indian cricketer couldn't control his excitement during Kings XI Punjab's (KXIP) stunning win over Mumbai Indians (MI). KXIP had to wait for two Super Overs, before sealing two points against MI. Yuvraj praised Nicholas Pooran's display and also predicted his former team would make it to the playoffs, to which Yuzvendra Chahal gave a hilarious reply. The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) spinner asked, "Bhaiya Hum india aajaye wapis?"

Chahal trolled the 2011 ODI World Cup winner by hinting that he missed RCB in his prediction, to which the former KXIP captain gave some cheeky advice. He said that the leggie can grab a few wickets, concede some sixes, and then return to India.
Chahal ended his side of the conversation by saying, "Ok bhaiya 10th November Tak wickets or kha leta Hun sixes".

"Bilkul ! Final zaroor dekh kar aana," quipped the 38-year-old.
Punjab had to wait for two Super Overs, before sealing a win at the Dubai International Stadium, in Dubai. This is also the first in the history of the game, that scores were tied at the end of the regulation 20 overs and then the first Super Over. Pooran put in a T20 special knock of 24 runs from 12 balls, packed with two fours and two sixes.
After the win, KXIP are sixth in the league table. Meanwhile, RCB are third after nine matches.
