After being dropped from India’s T20 World Cup squad, Yuzvendra Chahal received a further setback when the leg-spinner was not retained by the Royal Challengers Bangalore. While Chahal did make a comeback of sorts in the Indian Blues and was part of the home T20 series against New Zealand which saw Rohit Sharma taking charge of the T20I side, it will be interesting to see how his cricketing future pans out.
However, after his non-retention from Royal Challengers Bangalore, an old video is doing the rounds on the Internet in which Chahal is asked to pick another franchise he would like to play for, if not the Bangalore side. Chahal gives it a good thought in the video before answering Chennai Super Kings.
The video is from an interview taken earlier in the year by CricTracker.

Disciplinarian, Passionate, and Hard-Working- 3 words to describe Virat Kohli
Meanwhile, in this “Free Hit” interview when Chahal was asked to describe Kohli in 3 words, he could be seen saying disciplinarian, passionate and hard-working. King Kohli was on a break from cricket after India’s defeat at the T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE and did not play a role in the team’s home T20 series as well as the first Test match at the Green Park, Kanpur.
The 33-year-old however will be back at the helm of affairs as the captain in the second Test match against the Kiwis at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. It will be interesting to see though whose place Kohli takes in the Playing XI. Although Shreyas Iyer batted at Kohli’s preferred number 4 batting number, he made a hundred and a fifty in the two innings of the Kanpur Test to justify his place in the team.
Meanwhile, Ajinkya Rahane, who led India in the first match in the absence of Kohli in the first match, yet again disappointed with the bat and may have to make way now for Kohli. The first Test match ended in a draw with the barest of margins- with the last Kiwi batting pair surviving over 50 balls on the final day to force a draw.
