Indian spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is a part of both the squads announced for the home series against West Indies. Despite having a forgetful outing against South Africa in the ODI series, the selectors persisted with him as he was named in both the ODI and T20I squads. He will have an important role to play with the ball in the series against West Indies.

Yuzvendra Chahal recently spoke to the RCB podcast recalling his days with the Banglore franchise. In the same episode, he narrated an incident when he was pranked by former Australian cricketer Andrew Symonds during the 2011 Champions League. Chahal then was a part of the Mumbai Indians and was Symonds’ teammate. He recalled an incident involving  Symonds, who tied him during a party.

“It happened in 2011 when Mumbai Indians won the Champions League. Andrew Symonds drank a lot of “fruit juice” during a party. He tied my hands and James Franklin tied my legs. The task for me was to open it. But then, they forgot that they had put a tape on my mouth. The next morning, a cleaner came and saw me and got me out of it,” said Chahal.

Chahal was roped in by Royal Challengers Banglore in 2014 and he stayed with the franchise till 2021. In the meantime, he picked 139 wickets with the franchise in 114 games. He also made his debut for India in the meantime and became a regular member of India’s white-ball squads. The leggie said that he wants to play for RCB again while speaking to Ravichandran Ashwin for the latter’s Youtube channel.

“Obviously, I want to go to RCB again. But I won’t feel bad if I go somewhere else. All of them have to build new teams. Whoever takes me, I have no problem. I will continue to give my 100%. But yes, when you go to a new franchise, it takes a little time to adjust. But that’s why we call ourselves professional players” Chahal said to Ashwin.

The IPL 2022 mega auction will clash with the home series against West Indies. The auction will be held on February 12 and 13 in Bengaluru.
