Yuzvendra Chahal is certainly one of the most famous cricketers of India and it is not just his cricketing skills that have impressed the Indian cricket fans but his online presence has also helped him in garnering a huge fan following.
While we have seen Yuzi always smiling and in a cheerful mood, there is one secret of his life that is spine-chilling and it was revealed in a video which was posted by the IPL franchise Rajasthan Royals. The caption on the video read, “Royals’ comeback stories ke saath, aapke agle 7 minutes hum #SambhaalLenge”
The video features Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal and Karun Nair and all three of them narrated a story of their lives which is not known to many people and made them learn something. While Karun Nair’s story was about the fickleness of life and Ashwin went back to his engineering days, the story of Yuzi may scare you a little.
As per Chahal, not many people know about this story as he hasn’t spoken about it till now. The incident dated back to 2013 when he was a part of Mumbai Indians. There was a match in Bangalore after which a get-together was planned wherein one cricketer who was very drunk was constantly looking at Chahal. Yuzi said that after some time a player called him, took him outside and hung him from the balcony.
The spinner further said that they were on the 15th floor and Yuzi had hold that player by placing his hands behind the drunk player’s neck but if his hands had slipped, he would have lost his life. Chahal said that soon other people came, handled the situation and gave him water as he was almost in a faint condition. Yuzi said that this incident made him learn that we need to be responsible whenever we go somewhere.

Though Chahal hasn’t revealed the name of the drunken player, his fans have taken to social media and requested him to tell who that player is and #JusticeforChahal has also started trending on Twitter. Surprisingly, no one talked about it till now but the big question is whether the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Mumbai Indians will think of taking an action in this regard or not.
