‘In Auction They Promised Me That They Will Go All-out For Me But Didn’t Happen’, Yuzvendra Chahal Reveals The Massive Story Of His Partition From RCB

Star Indian leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has made a massive revelation regarding his switch from Royal Challengers Bangalore to Rajasthan Royals during the mega auction of IPL 2022.  Chahal played for RCB for almost eight years and it was expected that the RCB franchise would retain him but it didn’t happen.

The list of players retained by the team was announced which included Virat Kohli for a price of INR 15 crore. Glenn Maxwell was also retained for INR 11 crore, and Mohammed Siraj for INR 7 crore. Although it was expected that Kohli and Maxwell would be retained, the exclusion of Yuzvendra Chahal came as a surprise to RCB fans and it was one of the most highlighted talks on social media.

While talking to Ranveer Allahbadiya’s podcast, Chahal said that there was no communication between him and management regarding his future with the team. He also said that Franchise assured him to buy back in the mega auction but the scene was completely different when the auction happened.

“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 trust. So, it felt bad, because it almost feels family when you spend 8 years at a team. A lot of rumours 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.

“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 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,” said the leg-spinner further.
