Over the years, Yuzvendra Chahal has been synonymous with Bangalore. Not only has he been their best bowler in the last few editions, but he has also been one of their most consistent performers. Yet, the franchise didn’t retain him ahead of the mega auction.
Thus, Rajasthan managed to purchase him in the mega auction for INR 6.5 crore. However, what shocked everybody was the fact that Bangalore didn’t even try to buy him back. Thus, several fans started speculating a lot of stories about the leggie, and his previous franchise.
Recently, Chahal liked a reel that was trolling the 2016-finalists. This reel trolled the Bangalore management for spending INR 10 crore. It showed Bangalore punching the management for their decision to back the Sri Lankan cricketer so much.
Thus, this screenshot instantly went viral. Several people reacted to it as well. While some fans speculated a rift between the player and franchise, the others felt that he liked it only because it was funny.
In the meanwhile, the Rajasthan-based team’s COO Jack Lush McCrum was absolutely delighted to have Chahal in the side. As a matter of fact, he called the spinner the “best buy” as well. Jack also said that they got almost everyone they wanted.
“I would probably say Yuzi is the buy of the auction in terms of value, so we are delighted to have his leg-spin wicket-taking capability in our side. Overall, we got almost everyone we wanted to. Yes, there were players on our list who we missed, but we had to prioritize and be flexible to get the players at a good value so we could have the best possible squad. We are very happy with what we have achieved,” said Jack Lush McCrum during a chat with Red Bull.
