In IPL 2021, Yuzvendra Chahal landed in the field for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Yuzvendra Chahal made a sensational disclosure about IPL 2021 on 22 May. He said that he was thinking about leaving the tournament in the midway. However, the corona case was later suspended indefinitely on May 4 when corona cases came within the IPL 2021 bio-bubble itself. Four players were found positive during this period. These included Wriddhiman Saha of Sunrisers Hyderabad, Amit Mishra of Delhi Capitals, Varun Chakraborty of Kolkata Knight Riders, and Sandeep Warrier. Apart from these, Chennai Super Kings batting coach Mike Hussey and bowling coach Laxmipathi also came under the grip of Corona. Later, the results of KKR’s Prasidh Krishna and Tim Seifert also came positive. But by then the tournament was suspended.
Yuzvendra Chahal said in a conversation with Sports Tak that his parents were found to be Corona positive. After this, he could not concentrate on the game. He said, ‘When I came to know that my parents have corona positive, I was thinking of taking a break from the IPL. When parents were alone at home, it was difficult to concentrate on the game. They came positive on 3 May and the tournament was suspended after two days. Chahal’s mother later recovered from Corona, but her father’s health deteriorated. In such a situation, he was admitted to the hospital in Gurugram.
Chahal’s father still not fully recovered
30-year-old Yuzvendra Chahal further said, ‘My father’s oxygen level had fallen to 85-86 and we had to take him to the hospital. He came back home yesterday (21 May). But their result is still positive. However, the good thing is that his oxygen level is now near 95-96, which is a great relief for us. It will take 7 to 10 days for them to recover completely. ‘
Yuzvendra Chahal says- India is a big contender to win T20 World Cup
On the question of the ICC T20 World Cup, Yuzvendra Chahal said that even if the tournament goes to UAE, India will be a strong contender to win it. He said, ‘I firmly believe that we are the number one contender to win the T20 World Cup this year, even if it goes to the UAE. The condition there is also like India and it will be a big boost for us.’
Due to Corona cases in India, there is talk of organizing the tournament. The T20 World Cup is to be held in October-November. India is currently hosting it. The rest of the decision has to be taken by the ICC. It is reported that this year, where the T20 World Cup will be decided, it will be decided on June 1.
