Chahal climbed 12 spots to sit at number two in the latest ICC T20I Player Rankings for bowlers, owing to his impressive display in the recently concluded Nidahas Trophy Tri-Series, in Sri Lanka. He now has a career-high 706 rating points.
As far as the IPL is concerned, the 27-year-old was the second highest wicket-taker in 2016 and third best the preceding year. He took 14 wickets in 13 games last year. In just five seasons with RCB and Mumbai Indians, he has tallied 70 scalps.
One of only five teams to have played all 10 seasons - Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, Delhi Daredevils and Kings XI Punjab are the others - RCB are yet to win a title. They did come close thrice, finishing runners-up in 2009, 2011 and 2016, and were also third in two editions.
The 11th edition of IPL will start on April 7 with defending champions Mumbai Indians taking over the returning Chennai Super Kings at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
