Yuzvendra Chahal is the backbone of the RCB bowling line-up with the spinner becoming Virat Kohli's go to man when in need of wickets. Chahal, who has previously played for Mumbai Indians in the IPL, was signed by RCB in 2014. In his impressive IPL career, the leg spinner has played 84 matches and has scalped 100 wickets with an economy rate of 7.78.
Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma is one of the most successful captains in the IPL. The 'Hitman' has led Mumbai Indians to four IPL titles, making them one of the most successful team in the history of the tournament. The IPL was scheduled to start on March 29 with Mumbai Indians taking on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the opening match.
The tournament was then postponed from March 29 to April 15 due to COVID-19. After the government decided to extend the lockdown, the BCCI decided to postponed the tournament until further notice.
