The cricketers have eventually started practicing and travelling to their franchise hometowns. Recently, Royal Challengers Bangalore shared a picture of Yuzvendra Chahal reaching Bengaluru. The cricketer is one of the three players who have reached the garden city for the preparations of the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League.
As per the rules and regulations, all the players have to follow the SOPs for safe and smooth conduct of IPL 2020. All the cricketers including the leg spinner are confined to stay in their rooms right since the time they have landed. With nothing much to do during the quarantine, Chahal shared a humorous moment with the officials. RCB shared a video about the same on their social media account.
The leggie tried to go out of his hotel room and was stopped by the officials. He can be seen craving to go out of his room but was not able to do that as the cricketers are bound to strictly follow the self-isolation rules.
In the video, Chahal can be seen mentioning that he will go out after 4 days which means Royal Challengers are flying on 21st August. Fast bowlers Navdeep Saini and Umesh Yadav are the other two cricketers from RCB who have landed in Bengaluru.
