Yuzvendra Chahal is undoubtedly one of the greatest Indian spinners in the limited-overs format and is currently the leading wicket-taker for India in T20Is. He came into the limelight due to his magnificent performances for Royal Challengers Bangalore, a franchise that he served from 2014 to 2021. Before playing for RCB, Chahal was a part of the Mumbai Indians set up in 2013. He didn’t play many games for the team but Chahal recently revealed a nerve-wracking revelation he encountered during his MI days.
In a video shared by Rajasthan Royals on Twitter, Chahal along with Karun Nair and Ravichandran Ashwin narrated their “comeback stories”. The leg-spinner opened up about an incident that not many people know about.
Yuzvendra Chahal was dangled from the balcony by a drunk MI player
He spoke about his narrow escape in 2013 when a drunk Mumbai Indians player, who Chahal chose not to name, dangled him from the balcony.
“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,” Chahal told Ashwin and Nair in the video.
“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 realized how responsible you should be if you go out anywhere. So, this was one incident where I felt I made a narrow escape. Had there been the slightest of mistake, I would have fallen down,” he added.
