Yuzvendra Chahal, who failed to find a spot in Team India’s playing eleven against Australia in all three T20Is, recently caught up with former Aussie all-rounder Andrew Symonds. He made his meeting with Andrew Symonds memorable by taking a picture and later dedicating a post for the Australian on Instagram.
Chahal called the 43-year-old Symonds “Symmo Uncle” and said that “some friendships are not diminished by time and distance. Always great to see this guy.”
Symonds had recently revealed that the infamous ‘Monkeygate’ controversy during the Sydney Test between India and Australia in January 2008 led him to alcohol abuse.
Symonds’ Cricket Australia contract was withdrawn in June 2009 after he was sent home from the World Twenty20 following the latest in a series of alcohol-related indiscretions.
