"Coupley only with my rohitaaaa shramaaaa" - Yuzvendra Chahal reacts to Ritika Sajdeh calling him and Shardul Thakur a couple
Yuzvendra Chahal's reaction to Rohit Sharma's wife Ritika Sajdeh's comment on Instagram has left the internet in splits.
Team India all-rounder Shardul Thakur recently shared an in-flight picture with the leg-spinner as the Men in Blue left for West Indies on Tuesday (July19) for their upcoming white-ball assignment.
The netizens gave their picture a big thumbs up as they showered the post with likes. However, it was Ritika's comment that caught the attention of fans.
Commenting on the picture, she wrote that the two cricket stars looked like a couple. The leg-spinner was quick to respond saying he was loyal to Rohit and hilariously suggested that they were both still a couple.
"What a coupley photo"
The Rajasthan Royals spinner responded by saying:
"@ritssajdeh coupley only with my rohitaaaa shramaaaa bhabhi #loyalty ❤️🤣."
Thakur also replied to the comment by mentioning that they looked like partners as they had occupied Rohit and Ritika's seats in the aircraft during the journey.
Ritika and Chahal have often entertained their followers with their banter on social media. Furthermore, the spinner shares a great camaraderie with Rohit and likes to pull his skipper's leg by calling him 'Rohitaaa Sharmaaa'.
