Chahal also spoke about his learnings from the talismanic cricketer. “I learned a lot under his guidance and played a lot of cricket under him. Be it RCB or for India, he gave me a lot of freedom in the field,” he added.

Chahal, who would play for the Royals this year, revealed that he has a good rapport with current Indian captain Rohit Sharma.

“I call him Rohitaa. The bond is the same with Rohit bhaiya. He is still the same. He is a fun loving captain. He backs the youngsters a lot and encourages them.”

“He always says ‘tujhe pata hain na kya karna hain, ja kar ab’. He gives you the liberty. I have played a couple of tournaments and series under him. I didn’t see any change in him. I can trust Rohit bhai blindly,” said Chahal.

Eyes would be on Chahal with the T2O World Cup set to take place later this year. He would be vying for a spot in the Indian team.
