5 Indian Players who made it big in IPL
#4 Yuzvendra Chahal
Chahal has now become the go-to spinner for Virat Kohli in the limited overs format both at the International level and also for his franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore. Chahal was first picked up by Mumbai Indians in 2011 when he was just 21 years of age.
He was with Mumbai Indians for 3 long years but never got a game in the IPL, though he played for Mumbai Indians in the Champions League T20 in 2011. He helped Mumbai Indians to defend their title in the final when he took 2 wickets for 9 runs in three overs.
He was bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore in the 2014 IPL auction at his base price of 10 Lakhs. He made his international ODI debut against Zimbabwe in 2016. Later in the same series, he made his T20 debut.
Very few people know that Chahal has also represented India in chess at the international level in the youth championship.
