Chahal has played 11 matches so far this season and has taken 11 wickets at an economy of 7.24. Chahal’s performance in UAE especially has been tremendous for RCB. In the last match played against Rajasthan Royals, Yuji spent just 18 runs in his four over spell and took two big wickets for which he was also adjudged man of the match. Bangalore beat Sanju Samson’s team by 7 wickets.
RCB’s team has won 7 out of 11 matches played so far while the team has to face defeat in 4. Talking about the UAE leg, the team has won two out of four matches. However, under the captaincy of Virat Kohli, Bangalore have shown a great game in the last two matches and have beaten the front team all four. RCB will need to win any one of their remaining three matches to secure a place in the playoffs.
