Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) kept their playoff hopes alive after beating the Delhi Daredevils (DD). The leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal was one of the reasons that Kohli-led side restricted the hosts for a par total at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium. RCB will have to win all their remaining matches and then hope for the other results to go their way or else their tournament will be done and dusted, yet again.
However, the 27-year old leggie has already planned out what he is going to do post IPL. Notably, India will travel to the United Kingdom for the long tour where they will play 2 T20Is against Ireland and then will face England in 3 T20Is and 3 ODIs respectively. Chahal along with Kuldeep Yadav has been a vital cog in the limited overs for the Indian side.
Have a chat with coach Hirwani: Chahal
But before flying to Ireland and England, the Haryana-born player will be visiting NCA in Bengaluru for training under former India leg-spinner Narendra Hirwani. Yuzvendra Chahal was speaking after their victory against the Delhi side. “Before England, we are going to Ireland. The weather is expected to be the same as in England. I have a month left after IPL. I will go to NCA in Bengaluru for training. There I will have a chat with my coach, Hirwani sir,” said Chahal.
The leg-spinner felt that Hirwani, having played in the English conditions, can explain about the weather and conditions. The leggie also added that he will seek help from his India A mates who will be touring England for a tri-series. “He (Hirwani) has also played earlier in the UK (for India as well as league cricket). So, I will ask him about the weather and conditions. India A team will also tour first and I have a lot of friends in that team. I will try and find out from them as to how helpful the pitches are and how the bounce is,” Chahal added.
