Chahal has a quirky take on Kohli completing 50 Tests as captain
NEW DELHI: India spinner Yuzvendra Chahal on Thursday wished his skipper Virat Kohli, who became the second Indian captain to lead the side in 50 Test matches, in an amusing manner. Kohli reached the landmark when he led the side against South Africa in the ongoing second Test in Pune.
Taking to Twitter Chahal wrote, "Congrats Bhaiya only 50 more test matches than me."

Former skipper MS Dhoni has led the Indian side for the most number of times in the longest format of the game. He captained India for 60 matches in the Test format.
The 29-year-old leg-break bowler has played 50 ODIs for ‘Men in Blue’ and bagged 85 wickets whereas in Test cricket he is waiting for his spot.
In the shortest format of the game, he has 46 wickets under his name with the best figure of 6/25.
Kohli and Chahal share a dressing room in the Indian Premier League (IPL) as both the players play for franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).
Chahal was part of Men in Blue's ODI squad against the West Indies. He got a chance in the last ODI which India won by six wickets. India clinched the ODI series 2-0 as the first ODI was called off due to rain.
