When Rohit Sharma thought Yuzvendra Chahal's muscles are 'intimidating'
Social media is a funny place, especially when celebrities engage in harmless banter. Picture this: On Saturday, Yuzvendra Chahal tweeted a picture of himself with Rohit Sharma and Krunal Pandya with a caption about his batting position for the next match. And, in no time, Sharma trolled him, calling him the '#GoatOfInstagram'. And, he didn't stop there. Here's what went down.

On Saturday, Chahal tweeted the picture of himself, Sharma, and Krunal laughing and relaxing after the practice session for the first T20I in Visakhapatnam. The caption read, "My reaction when they tell me you are batting at number 3 tomorrow." Thereafter, Sharma posted the same picture on Instagram, with the caption, "When the #GoatOfInstagram makes a joke it's mandatory for us commoners to laugh."

However, Sharma didn't stop at Instagram. In his next move, he tweeted the cover of HT City magazine which featured a shirtless Chahal posing like a model, with his arm raised and leaning on a wall, flaunting his biceps. The caption read, "This is why we call him G.O.A.T. Those muscles can be intimidating." For the uninitiated, G.O.A.T. stands for 'Greatest of All Time'.
