It won't be an exaggeration to say that Yuzvendra Chahal has been the leading Indian spinner in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for more than half a decade now. But it was a humble beginning for the Haryana leggie. Having spent 3 years in the Mumbai Indians set-up (2011-13) for just 1 opportunity, Chahal's true calling in the IPL came in the 2014 auction when he was picked by the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Chahal played all 14 games in that season, claiming 12 wickets @ 32.16/7.01.

The next couple of seasons proved to be the making of Yuzi Chahal as he quickly became the go-to man for Virat Kohli with 20+ wickets in each of those editions.

What made his achievements even more incredible is that most of his performances came at the pint-sized M Chinnaswamy Stadium. His exploits deservedly earned him a ticket to international cricket.
