Yohan is a big cricket fan and considers cricket to be his first love. He had played cricket as a child in Jamaica as a fast bowler. He is friends with other Jamaican cricketers like Chris Gayle. While analyzing the first India vs England Test, he said: “Wonderful Test, England and India. I must say, Joe Root and England team well played. Jimmy Anderson brilliant as ever. Age is just a number and Jimmy proves it all the time.
With Indian one down, the second Test would be interesting. I am looking forward for the second Test.”
India and England will play their second Test match in V=Chennai from 13 February.
