Yuzvendra Chahal, a right-arm leg-spinner from Haryana, made his first-class debut against Madhya Pradesh in Indore when he was 19 years old. Despite his lack of first-class experience, he has been effective in the shorter format, earning him an IPL deal with the Mumbai Indians in 2011. However, the Mumbai franchise did not provide him with many opportunities, and he was placed in the IPL's 2014 auction pool.
The leggie had a blessing in disguise when he was picked up by the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), where he played an important role in their bowling setup. Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal is a frequent component of the Indian limited-overs set-up. Ever since his international debut in 2016, he has represented the country in 52 ODIs and 42 T20Is and he was part of India’s effort at the 2019 World Cup. In his international career, the right-arm spinner has taken 146 wickets and was the second player in the world to achieve a six-wicket haul in T20Is.
Chahal played every match in the IPL for the first time in his career and was one of Virat Kohli's go-to men in critical circumstances. He had a great start to the season in the UAE, but when the competition moved to India, he struggled to collect many wickets. Throughout the season, he was, nevertheless, frugal. He was also a finalist for the Emerging Player of the Year award, but Axar Patel beat him out. Since then, Chahal has developed as the backbone of Royal Challengers Bangalore's spin attack. While he lacks a deceptive googly, his skiddy bowling motion and precise line and length more than make up for it.
Several of his wickets have come with batsmen aiming to clear the fence, making him one of the few bowlers who doesn't mind luring batsmen with the flight. Virat Kohli's first-hand understanding of the shorter version of the game led to his participation in the Indian team, first for the Twenty20 format and subsequently for the 50-over tournament. The mid-2016 visit to Zimbabwe provided the ideal opportunity to bring in new blood, and Chahal seized the opportunity with both hands, excelling in both forms of the game.
Chahal stepped up his game when England came to visit in the winter of 2016-17, after shining in his first opportunity. In the Twenty20 international, his stats of six for 25 are the second highest ever for a bowler in a T20I match. It happened at M Chinnaswamy stadium, which was his second home. Following a strong series against Sri Lanka, Chahal has positioned himself in line for selection if the selectors believe that a wrist spinner would be best for India's preparations for the 2019 Cricket World Cup.
He began his time with RCB by appearing in all 14 league games. Chahal was nominated for the Emerging Player of the Year award, which he lost to Axar Patel despite only taking 12 wickets. Chahal developed as a player over the next two seasons, taking 44 wickets and became one of RCB's most important cogs. He passed Vinay Kumar to become the Bangalore franchise's highest wicket-taker in the 2018 tournament.
RCB only kept Kohli and AB de Villiers before the 2018 auction, but Chahal was purchased back by the Bangalore franchise for INR 6 crore via the RTM (right to match).
