Did Chahal Ignore Ex Teammate Harshal Patel After The Match? Here’s Truth Behind Viral Video
The IPL is certainly making all the cricket lovers go crazy and credit for the same goes to the cricketers who are playing superb knocks, giving great bowling performances and displaying some extraordinary fielding skills as well. However, sometimes matches are also remembered for unique incidents, for example, the famous run-out of Virat Kohli by Yuzvendra Chahal in the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals.
This was the first time that Yuzi was playing for any other team in the IPL as in the last eight seasons, he played for RCB and was an integral member of the RCB squad. However, the franchise neither retained him before the mega-auction of the IPL 2022 nor bought him in the auction. This definitely left the RCB fans shocked because Chahal was a good performer and many times he exhibited match-winning performances for RCB. Eventually the spinner was bought by RR for a price of Rs. 6.5 crore and though he was a little hurt with the attitude of the RCB management, he made it clear that he would always love his RCB fans.
In the match against RR and RCB, there was one more moment which would be remembered for a long time and that is also related to Yuzvendra Chahal. After the match, it is a custom that all the players from both the teams shake hands and greet each other but a video is going viral in which Yuzvendra Chahal is seen snubbing Harshal Patel and walking away after shaking hands with Dinesh Karthik.
Here is the video in which you can see Yuzi ignoring his former teammate:

After watching this video, we may feel that both these players are not on good terms. However in response to this video, another online user shared a video which was posted on the official Twitter handle of the Indian Premier League in which Chahal and Harshal are seen hugging each other after RCB wins the match.
Take a look at the video:

Earlier, RCB posted a video in which Harshal Patel talked about Yuzi playing for another team. Harshal says that it is a little weird to see Yuzi playing for another team but they are professionals and friendship stays out of the field.
Now, this episode also gives us a lesson that we should not believe anything or everything on the virtual world or social media sites instantly.
