The player had been a central feature of Team India’s setup, but he displayed a poor performance against England in March. That’s why he was dropped after playing three of the five games. Chahal’s performance in the first phase of the IPL 2021 was also underwhelming, where he managed to take only four wickets in seven games. But Chahal remains an essential component of the RCB squad and will try to enhance his performance in the second phase of IPL 2021.
Yuzvendra Chahal Is Not Worried About The World Cup Right Now
Chahal says that he wants his retirement to be with RCB because after joining RCB, his life changed. This IPL franchise gave him recognition and transformed his game altogether in 2014.
But, before you go on assuming that this star leg-spinner was always the hidden gem of RCB, let us tell you, it was Mumbai Indians who spotted him first. Chahal got his debut cap through Mumbai Indians in the 2013 IPL. But he got his first entire season in 2014.
“I WANT TO RETIRE WITH THE RCB AND IT WILL ALWAYS BE MY l DREAM THAT WHENEVER I PLAY IN THE IPL, IT IS FOR RCB.”

Since 2014, this star player has always been a prominent feature of the RCB squad. He has so far picked up 123 wickets on an average of 23 overs. So, he wants to play IPL and play it for RCB only, so he is currently not bothered about his exclusion from the World Cup snub. He said:
“My entire focus is on the IPL. For now it’s about recovering as quickly as possible because it takes some time to do so after Covid. The rhythm I had in Sri Lanka, I will continue the same during the IPL.”
Chahal Is More Determined To Prove His Worth
After missing out on India’s T20 World Cup, the 31-year-old is looking to restart his career. So it was a bit unfair seeing R Ashwin making his comeback after four years away from T20 cricket, and Chahal was overlooked despite being India’s leading wicket-taker. Chahal has 63 wickets in 49 games, but unfortunately, he has only four in the last five T20 matches.
As RCB prepares to win their first IPL title, he will try to improve his statistics. During the edition of the IPL held in the United Arab Emirates, he took 21 wickets. He is one of the most expensive bowlers in the T20 league’s history.
What We Think
We think Chahal will prove his worth to the WC Snub once again if he manages to give his best performance in the second phase of IPL 2021. We expect nothing but the best from this athlete. So, we hope to see some amazing feats of this bowler during the RCB matches that will earn him his spot back.
