Chadwick a great learner

In the video which was posted to Twitter, Yuvraj walks up to wicketkeeper Chadwick Walton. Walton, who hails from the Carribean, suddenly speaks in Punjabi and laughs uncontrollably. Yuvraj replies to Walton in Punjabi and Walton proceeds to repeat his earlier dialogue. Although the audio in the video was not of the highest standard, it could be deciphered that the two were jokingly asking each other if the other one was okay and finishing the statement off by asking the other to leave the location.

The Arabians finish strong

The video was posted after the Maratha Arabians defeated Team Abu Dhabi by a formidable margin. This victory for the Arabians came after Abu Dhabi skipper Moeen Ali won the toss and asked the Arabians to bat first. The Arabians were not playing Yuvraj and stand-in skipper Chris Lynn walked out to bat with Hazratullah Zazai.

The rest of the match ran through like a breeze, credit goes to some Lynn-sanity. Chris Lynn hit 7 sixes in the 30 balls he faced and scored an unbeaten 91. Adam Lyth supported him well by scoring 30 off 18 balls and the team managed to post a formidable 138-2.

In return, Abu Dhabi got to a decent 114 but could not manage 138 in just 10 overs. Their efforts were led by Luke Wright's unbeaten 40 and captain Moeen Ali's 31 off 11 balls. The Arabians ended up winning by 24 runs.
