The Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will be up against Mumbai Indians (MI) in the first fixture of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on April 9. There is a lot of buzz around the upcoming T20 extravaganza as the fans are eagerly waiting to witness the homecoming of IPL after two years.
Due to the rapid increase in the number of coronavirus cases in India, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) hosted the 13th edition of the league in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Though IPL 2021 will be hosted in India, the tournament will be conducted in neutral venues just like IPL 2020 to eliminate the home advantage and reduce the travel for the players and other staff.
As the RCB gears up for the game against MI, their ace spinner Yuzvendra Chahal again gave a glimpse of his goofy self on his official Instagram handle. Chahal took to his Instagram to share a short clip where he can be seen imitating The Undertaker’s iconic slow walk. The Undertaker is the biggest name to have performed at Wrestlemania and the superstar ended his illustrious career with 25 wins and just two defeats.
The video also features New Zealand’s Kyle Jamieson, who is as tall as The Undertaker, walking behind Chahal. The leg-spinner captioned the funny video as, “The challengers are ready for WrestleMania @kylejamieson.”

Yuzvendra Chahal to resume action in IPL 2021
Yuzvendra Chahal last donned the Indian colors in the five-match T20I series against England. However, the 30-year-old didn’t have an ideal outing as in the first three matches, he leaked runs at an economy of 12 and a poor average of 39.67 while picking just three wickets. Chahal’s poor form resulted in him getting dropped from the rest of the two matches.
Owing to his poor outing in T20Is, the Haryana-born was also axed from the three-match ODI series against the same opponents. Thus, Yuzvendra will be looking forward to scripting a memorable comeback in IPL 2021. He has been the standout bowler for the Challengers for quite a few years.
