Yuzvendra Chahal Drops Bombshell Over Being Snubbed By RCB

India spinner Yuzvendra Chahal opened up after getting dropped from Indian Premier League franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore. The leg-spinner was an integral part of the franchise since 2014 and played 144 matches.

Now after almost one and a half years Chahal opened up on being snubbed by the RCB and also reckoned that he got the Indian debut cap because of the same franchise.

“I played there for 8 years. RCB basically gave me the India cap because they gave me a chance to perform. From the very first match, Virat Bhaiya showed me trust. So, it felt bad, because it almost feels family when you spend 8 years on a team. A lot of rumors came in, like I asked for huge amount of money. I clarified at the time that there wasn’t anything like that. I know what I deserve,” Chahal said.

The 32-year-old also revealed that RCB promised him that they would go all out for him.

“What I felt really bad about was there was no phone call, no communication. At least have a talk. I had played 114 matches for them. In auction, they promised me that they would go all-out for me. I said, fine. When I wasn’t picked there, I was very angry. I gave them 8 years. Chinnaswamy was my favorite ground. I didn’t talk to RCB coaches. The first match I played against them, I didn’t talk to anyone,” said the leg-spinner further.

Chahal also said that his current franchise Rajasthan Royals helped him to grow as a cricketer and reckoned that whatever happened happened for good.

“I realize the auction is a very unpredictable place. So, I made peace with the fact that whatever happens, happens for good. At RR, I started bowling at death. Often, my quota would be completed before 16 overs in RCB. So, I think I grew as a cricketer in RR as well. So, whatever happened, happened for good,” said Chahal.

“I’ve an attachment for RCB and their fans, but coming to Rajasthan Royals helped me cricket-wise.”
