He wants to keep working well: Dube on Chahal TV

NEW DELHI: Yuzvendra Chahal is back in the Indian configuration and that means another episode of Chahal TV Is out. This time, he interviewed Mumbai boys Shreyas Iyer & Shivam dube while standing in a chair at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in New Delhi, where India will play Bangladesh in the first T20I of the three-game series on Sunday.

Chahal introduced his interviewees, who were both significantly taller than him, before glancing at the pair. He then pulled a chair from behind the camera & stood on it to make up for the height difference. "Now it is fine or else these two will make my back hurt," he said.

He asked Dube for his thoughts on the match, which would mark the 26-year-old's debut for the national team. "I just want to continue performing well. I am playing for the country now so it is a very proud moment. There will be more eyes on me & so I need to work hard & continue the good work," he said.

Shreyas then said that Dube hits the biggest six between the two. Chahal then asked Dube if his six are bigger than his own, which caused a left-handed laugh.

Dube had hit five consecutive sixes while playing for Mumbai in a Ranji Trophy match in 2018. It garnered attention from IPL franchises & he ended up being sold to Royal Challengers Bangalore for Rs 5 crore.

Chahal asked Shreyas, who captains Mumbai, what he had told Dube that the latter went on the assault in this manner. "We told him before the day started that today your price will increase in the auction only if you hit six sixes in an over. So then he ended up scoring a hundred & hit five consecutive sixes in that innings. Tabi jaake usko paanch khokha mila (Only then did he ends up getting Rs 5 crore)," said Shreyas as Dube laughed beside him. Chahal then said, "So if you had hit six sixes in six balls you would have got six crore?"
