To which, Chahal replied, "Keep dreaming I am batting no.10 or 11 before me finch ABD sir and king Kohli is there first to get out then we will talk about my batting#staysafe????????????".

Recently, Bumrah had challenged Chahal to face him in an IPL match during a live interaction with Rohit Sharma on Instagram live. 

“If we face off against RCB in a match, I want to bowl against Chahal. I’ve told him I need to bat above him in the batting order. The day he hits a six, I will go below him,” said Bumrah.

Rohit Sharma completely agreed with his IPL teammate, saying: “Even I feel you (Bumrah) should save an over and bowl against him (Chahal). Ever since he hit a straight drive in England, he has become a bit overconfident. We should tell him that he hasn’t hit a six in international cricket yet while you have hit a six against the No. 1 bowler in the world (Australia’s Pat Cummins).”
