Advice from an Ex-India Star to Under-Pressure RCB "Beg Yuzvendra Chahal to Come Back"


It has been a horrible IPL 2024 campaign for Royal Challengers Bengaluru as the Faf Du Plessis slumped to a narrow one-run loss against Kolkata Knight Riders on Sunday. For RCB, it was their seventh loss in eight matches, and they are currently at the bottom of the points table. The franchise, which enjoys an extremely loyal fanbase, has always boasted big-name players but has failed to win the competition even once. Former India cricketer Robin Uthappa advised RCB to bring back some of the match-winners that they let go over the years, beginning with star spinner YuzvendraChahal.

Uthappa said, "First, I would go and beg YuzvendraChahal to come back. I would do anything: go through hell and high water to bring Yuzi back from RR and make amends. I would maybe even go and bring Harshal Patel back and prepare wickets that are conducive for bowlers there to succeed. Look at the calibre of batters they have—Faf du Plessis, Virat Kohli, Maxwell, Dinesh Karthik—but bowlers? They've had such great batters. AB de Villiers played for them, and Chris Gayle played for them. Travis Head played for them. Shane Watson.”
