Now about Yuzvendra Chahal, former RCB team director Mike Hasan said, “We had talked to Yuzvendra Chahal during the initial meeting. We had retained three players at that time. Because we thought we could buy back Chahal and Harshal Patel. I am disappointed at not retaining Chahal. Because Yuzi Chahal was one of the top-5 players of RCB at that time. Apart from this, Yuzvendra Chahal is also one of the best players of IPL. However, Chahal could not make it to the list of top two players for RCB at that time. Which also looks quite ridiculous. It became difficult to buy Chahal as he came at number 65 during the auction.

Hasan claimed that Yuzvendra Chahal is also very disappointed with being retained by RCB. Because I called him and I explained a lot to him. At that time it was difficult for us to even guarantee the purchase of Chahal. But now everything is fine and Chahal is also well aware of that period.

Joined RCB in 2014

Yuzvendra Chahal started his IPL career in the year 2011. In the year 2011, Mumbai Indians bought Yuzvendra Chahal. After this, in the year 2014, Royal Challengers Bangalore included Chahal in their team. Chahal has played cricket for RCB for many years. But the franchise could not retain Chahal in the year 2022. Since then UG Chahal has been playing for Rajasthan Royals.
