- Chahal ignored Virat Kohli and named Sanju Samson as his favourite captain in the IPL
- Chahal also dropped a huge comparison between Samson and MS Dhoni
In an interaction with Humans of Bombay, Samson snubbed Kohli, whom he played under for 8 years at RCB and said that Samson has provided him with the freedom he required and credited the 28-year-old for his growth as a bowler in the last 12 months or so.
Asked about his favourite captain, Chahal said, “I think maine, jitne bhi captains, teeno captains ke under khela hun, unse voh liberty mili hai as a bowler, jo ek bowler chahta hai. Chahe voh Mahi bhai ho, Virat bhaiya ho ya Rohit Bhai. Mujhe voh ek cheez mili hai (I think, all three captains whom I have played under, I have gotten that liberty that a bowler requires, whether its Mahi bhai, Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma. So yeah, that’s the one thing I have gotten.”
