Indian cricketer Yuzvendra Chahal’s Chahal TV had recently revealed that the Indian cricket team always reserves a seat exclusively for former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni during their bus rides.

Dhoni had been on a break after the Indian cricket team lost the World Cup 2019 semi-final match against New Zealand.

In a ‘Chahal TV’ video that had been posted by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on its Twitter handle, Chahal can be seen having some light and entertaining conversations with his teammates while on a bus ride from Auckland to Hamilton on Sunday.

The video showed Chahal had some enchanting conversations with Indian pacers Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant, spinner Kuldeep Yadav and opener KL Rahul.

The last part of the video shows Chahal going to a vacant corner seat and reveal that Dhoni had that seat ‘exclusively’ reserved for him.

“A legend use to sit here. MS Dhoni. Nobody sits here now. We miss him a lot,” he added.

Chahal also said that Dhoni wanted to feature in the ‘Chahal TV’ a couple of times and even requested the former about the same.

“There is this one player who has never been on Chahal TV. He (Dhoni) was desperate to feature in Chahal TV a couple of times and even requested me in the past. But I said – not now,” Chahal said.
