Rajasthan Royals’ Yuzvendra Chahal opened up about a scary incident that he had been through during the IPL in the year 2013 when he was with the Mumbai Indians. The star spinner said how one of his teammates from back then took him on the balcony and hung him from the 15th floor of a building.

Chahal is known to be the prankster in the lot, but the story shared by him came as a shocker when he went on to explain it in detail. In a video shared by the Rajasthan Royals, Chahal was seen talking about the incident with his fellow teammate Ravichandran Ashwin and added how that experience changed his life.

“I never told this story, from today everyone will know. I never shared this. This dates back to 2013 when I was with Mumbai Indians we had a match in Bangalore. There was a get-together after that. So there was a player who was very drunk, I won’t say his name. He was very drunk, he was looking at me for a long time and he just called me and he took me outside and he hung me on the balcony,” said Chahal in the video.

“And my hands were around him, like this (behind the neck). Had I lost my grip, I was on the 15th floor. Suddenly many people who were there came and they handled it. I kind of fainted, they gave me water. Then I realized how responsible we need to be when we go anywhere. So this was one incident where I felt I made a narrow escape. Had there been slightest of mistakes, I would’ve fallen down,” he explained.

The incident was not reported by either him or any other player and has come into the limelight only after Chahal spoke about it in the video. Towards the end, he finished the story with a smile on his face, not pressurizing much on the past.
