Yuzvendra Chahal, who was once one of the pillars of the Royal Challengers Bangalore team, is now spreading his magic for Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League. Chahal once again proved his worth in the shortest format of the game, taking an impressive 3 wickets for Royals against Mumbai Indians on Saturday. When the match was between RR and MI, former Rajasthan star Shane Watson sent a clear message to him and Chahal's former team Royal Challengers Bangalore on the spinner's release.

Chahal was released by the Bengaluru franchise after the IPL 2021 season and was roped in by Rajasthan. Since then, he has cemented his place in the RR roster and has emerged as a consistent partnership breaker for his team.

“Yuzvendra Chahal has done this for a long time in international cricket as well as in the IPL. Chahal doesn't score a lot of runs and he gets the best batsmen out. He keeps doing that game after game, year after year and Rajasthan Royals Shane “We are very fortunate to have him,” Watson said on Geo Cinema.

Watson further added, “Today he took the big wicket of Hardik Pandya which was at a crucial moment of the game. Yuzi Chahal once again came out on top. I keep saying this – RCB, why did you let him go.” ,

In a chat show, Chahal, while talking about his sad departure from Royal Challengers, had said that the franchise had promised that they would do everything possible for him in the auction, but not a single bid was received.

“When I put my name up for the auction, they promised me that they would do everything possible for me. I said okay, but then I got very angry [He was not picked by RCB], I think I didn't talk to the coaches for 2-3 days. Even when I played my first match for RR against RCB, I didn't talk to anyone,” Chahal had said on Ranveer Allahabadia's show on YouTube.

“Of course, I felt very bad. My main journey began [from there] in 2014. I also felt very strange because I played for the franchise for eight years. I would also say that I got the India cap because of my performances for RCB because they gave me the opportunity to perform. Virat from the first match [Kohli] Brother showed confidence in me. It feels bad because I have been there for eight years,” Chahal had said a few months ago.
