Chahal joined RCB in 2014, having played a single IPL game before that for Mumbai Indians. The season-opener, co-incidentally against his former team, was his 100th IPL game.
Chahal has picked 121 wickets in 99 matches for RCB so much and is the franchise's leading wicket-taker.
Chahal was one of the key performers last year as well for RCB, taking 21 wickets as they made it to the playoffs for the first time since 2016.
