‘There was no phone call, no communication’: Yuzvendra Chahal opens up about RCB snub | Cricket News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: India leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has spoken out about his disappointment after Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) failed to retain him ahead of the 2022 IPL mega auction, saying he felt terrible because there was no phone call or communication from management despite playing for the franchise for eight years.
Chahal had been a key member of the RCB since the 2014 season, appearing in 114 matches for the team. He established his name with strong performances at one of the most difficult stadiums for bowlers in the IPL, the M Chinnaswamy, where smaller boundaries make it more difficult for the bowling side to restrict the hitters.
RCB, on the other hand, released their star spinner ahead of the 2022 IPL big auction and did not purchase him.
“Definitely, I felt very sad. My journey started with RCB. I spent eight years with them. RCB gave me a chance, and I got an India cap because of them. From the very first match, Virat bhaiya showed me trust. So, it felt bad, because it almost feels family when you spend 8 years at a team,” said Chahal on YouTuber Ranveer Allahbadiya’s podcast.
“A lot of rumours came in, like I asked for a huge amount of money. I clarified at the time that there wasn’t anything like that. I know what I deserve. 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 the auction, they promised me that they will 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 favourite ground. I didn’t talk to RCB coaches. The first match I played against them, I didn’t talk to anyone,” he added.
The 32-year old Chahal with 187 wickets is the leading IPL wicket taker and admitted that the move to Rajasthan Royals improved him as a bowler as he started bowling in the death overs.
“I realise 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.
