There is not much time left for the second half of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 to begin in the UAE. Leg spinner Chahal has not been included in the Indian team for next month’s T20 World Cup and hence Chahal does not want to leave any stone unturned in the second half of the IPL and is focusing on recovering from Corona as soon as possible. . He is sincerely hopeful that the momentum found in Sri Lanka will continue in the UAE as well. After reaching the UAE, Chahal has expressed his desire to continue wearing the RCB jersey till he decides to give it up.
He said about this, ‘I want to retire from RCB and it will always be my dream that whenever I play in IPL, I play for RCB only.’ On the arrival of Glenn Maxwell, Chahal gave credit to captain Virat Kohli saying that Maxwell knew the captain’s expectations. Chahal said that, ‘I think the captain has a lot of meaning in the change in the way a player plays. Maxwell knows that our captain is also the captain of the Indian team, who does not like a loose attitude. They love it when you give your 100 percent on the field, no matter what you do. Maxwell knew that the laxity he was doing in other IPL franchises would not be able to be done here.
It is noteworthy that after the failed IPL 2020 season, question mark was raised on Maxwell’s batting ability in limited overs format, which he answered by scoring 223 runs in six innings while playing for RCB in the first half of IPL this year. . Let us inform that after being found corona infected in Sri Lanka, Chahal had to sit out of the last two T20 matches against the host team. Earlier, he was the highest wicket-taker in the ODI series with five wickets in two ODIs against Sri Lanka.
