Yuzvendra Chahal’s shocking RCB snub reveals. “When I wasn’t picked there, I was very angry, and I gave them 8 years,” Chahal remarked of his non-selection during the IPL 2022 big auction.
Eight clubs made significant changes to their squads ahead of the IPL 2022 season, as the mega auctions resulted in substantial alterations with the addition of two new teams. While there were several unexpected transactions, Royal Challengers Bangalore’s decision to release Yuzvendra Chahal was one of the biggest surprises of the entire process.
Naturally, the teams had to part ways with some of their great players in the hopes of repurchasing them, but one of the biggest surprises came when Royal Challengers Bangalore published their retention list. Before the auction, a team could only keep four players, and RCB kept three while releasing the rest.
Virat Kohli, who step down as captain by that point, was retained for INR 15 crore, Glenn Maxwell for INR 11 crore, and Mohammed Siraj for INR 7 crore. While Kohli and Maxwell’s retentions were expected,
Chahal’s RCB snub surprise all RCB fans, who were divide on social media.
After nearly 1.5 years, Chahal made big admissions regarding his “non-communication” with the RCB management and open up about being disregard by the team. Chahal stated on YouTuber Ranveer Allahbadiya’s show that the franchise had promised to buy the spinner back in the huge auction, but that never happened.
“I was there for eight years. Because they gave me a chance to perform, RCB effectively gave me the India cap. Virat bhaiya demonstrated faith from the start. So it felt horrible because after 8 years on a team, it nearly seems like family. Many rumors circulated that I had requested a large sum of money. At the time, I clarified that there was nothing like that. “I know what I’m worth,” Chahal replied.
“What bothered me the most was that there had been no phone call or communication.” At the very least, have a conversation. I’d played 114 games for them. They assured me at the auction that they would go all out for me. Okay, I said. I am furious when I wasn’t chosen there. I gave them eight years. Chinnaswamy was my favorite playing field. I did not speak with any of the RCB coaches. “I didn’t talk to anyone during my first match against them,” the leg-spinner added.
I made peace with the fact that whatever happens, happens for good: Chahal
The leg-spinner, who appear in 114 games for RCB, had been a key member of the club since the 2014 season. Furthermore, he made a reputation for himself with excellent performances in one of the IPL’s most difficult stadiums for bowlers, the M Chinnaswamy in Bengaluru, where narrower boundaries often make it more difficult for the bowling side to keep the hitters in check.
Chahal went into greater depth regarding the time he transferred from RCB to Rajasthan Royals, stating that the move aided his development as a player.
“I understand that the auction is a volatile environment. So I made peace with the fact that whatever occurs is for the best. I began bowling at death at RR. My quota frequently complete before 16 overs in RCB. So I believe I grew as a cricketer in RR. So whatever transpired was for the best. “I have a soft spot for RCB and their fans, but coming to Rajasthan Royals aided my cricket career,” Chahal explained.
