Yuzvendra Chahal, the Indian leg-spinner, expressed his gratitude towards the franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore for their support over the years. His reaction came after he wasn’t retained on Tuesday by the franchise ahead of the mega auction.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore, just like other franchises, announced their retained players list on Tuesday night. As was widely expected, the 2016 runners-up have retained former skipper Virat Kohli, Australian swashbuckler Glenn Maxwell, and pacer Mohammed Siraj.

Yuzvendra Chahal proceeded to comment on a video post where RCB revealed the names of players they’ve retained.

He wrote: “Thank you for everything @RCBTweets”

Virat Kohli is the first player retained by the franchise. He will fetch Rs 15 crore as opposed to Rs 17 Crore, which he was earning earlier. Glenn Maxwell is the second player to be retained for an annual retainer of Rs 11 crore.

Meanwhile, Mohammed Siraj is the third pick at a sum of Rs 7 crore. As a result, the total purse remaining for the Bangalore franchise is Rs 57 Crore.

Yuzvendra Chahal’s exclusion comes as a huge surprise to RCB fans. The leg-spinner has been the leader of Bangalore’s bowling attack for a good five to six years now. Yuzvendra Chahal is the only RCB bowler to claim 100+ IPL wickets. Over the course of the last few years, he was the real Most Valuable Player for the franchise as far as bowling is concerned.

Glenn Maxwell was phenomenal with the bat in his first season for RCB as he ended up the season as their highest-run scorer with 513 runs from 14 innings at the strike rate of 144.10. In 2008, Virat Kohli was inducted into the RCB squad and started leading the side in the year 2013.

In the year 2016, he sat atop on the leading run-scorers list, thereby donning the Orange Cap at the end of the ninth edition of the league. He is the leading run-scorer in IPL history with over 6000 runs, (6283 runs) at an average of over 37 in 207 matches, all for RCB. In addition, he has 5 tons and 42 fifties.

Pace bowler Mohammed Siraj has also developed his skills and is progressing at RCB by not leaking enough runs. Mohammed Siraj has picked 11 wickets each time in the last two seasons. Virat Kohli (15 cr), Glenn Maxwell (11 cr), and Mohammed Siraj (7 cr) were retained.

According to media reports, negotiations over contract money between the management and Yuzvendra Chahal couldn’t come to fruition. However, following the release of the retention list, RCB social media handles expressed their gratitude towards players who have not been retained.

“The RCB management wholeheartedly thanks all the players who were a part of our 2021 squad for their unquestionable commitment to RCB and we sincerely hope this is not a goodbye, and our paths cross sooner than later,” they wrote.

With Yuzvendra Chahal back in the auction pool, it could lead to a bidding war between the franchises. The newly formed Lucknow and Ahmedabad franchises are also set to randomly pick three players from the release pool.

Hence, the leg spinner could very well land up in either of these two teams. On the other hand, Yuzvendra Chahal has thus far featured in 114 IPL games, claiming 139 wickets at an average of 22.28 and an economy rate of 7.59-all for RCB.

The likes of George Garton, Navdeep Saini, Dushmantha Chameera, Tim David, Shahbaz Ahmad, Wanindu Hasaranga, Dan Christian, and retired AB de Villiers were released before IPL 2032 mega auctions.
