Yuzvendra Chahal's shocking revelation: "Drunk player dangled me from balcony"text_fields
The Rajasthan Royals shared a video on Twitter in which Yuzvendra Chahal, Karun Nair, and Ravichandran Ashwin discussed their comebacks.
Leg-spinner drew attention to an incident few people are aware of. Chahal spoke of his narrow escape from being dangled from a balcony in 2013 by a drunk Mumbai Indians player, who he chose not to name.
The video shows Chahal telling Ashwin and Nair, "My story, some people know about. I have never spoken about this, I never shared this. In 2013, I was with the Mumbai Indians. We had a match in Bengaluru. There was a get together after that. There was a player who was very drunk, I will not take his name. He was very drunk; he was looking at me and he just called me. He took me outside and he dangled me from the balcony."
"My hands were around him. Had I lost my grip, I was on the 15th floor. Suddenly many people who were there came and got the situation under control. I kind of fainted. They gave me water, then I realised how responsible you should be if you go out anywhere. So, this was one incident where I felt I made a narrow escape." He added, even a slight mistake would have resulted in him falling down.
In the 2013 season, Chahal played for Mumbai Indians for just one season, after which he joined Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). The spinner played just one game for Mumbai Indians and was unable to pick up any wickets in that one game.
After joining RCB in 2004, he spent eight years with the Bengaluru-based franchise and is the most successful bowler there; Over eight years, Chahal managed to take 139 wickets.
Rajasthan Royals, Chahal's current team, have won two games this season. Their only loss has been against Chahal's old franchise, the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
