Royal Challengers Bangalore coach Simon Katich said there was no threat to his place in the squad, with Holly leg spinner Yuzvendra Chahal slipping to the bottom of the central contract and being denied a permanent place in the national team playing eleven. Chahal, who has been in poor form for some time, last season. So far in the IPL season, he has taken just four wickets in seven matches.

After losing the match against the Punjab Kings, Katich said, “We don’t say his place is not safe.” Chahal gave up 34 runs in four overs while Punjab leg-spinner Ravi Bishnoi took two for 17 and left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar took three for 19. Katich said, ‘His spinners bowled well. The wicket was slow and they traced it well. Yuzvendra made a good comeback but it was not easy to come back after he proved expensive in the first over.

However, the RCB coach hoped that the conditions would change in the next game against the Kolkata Knight Riders. He said it was a disappointing day for us, but good thing we are coming back. In the next match we will come back against KKR and win the match. Despite the big defeat against Punjab, RCB is still in third place in the ICL 2021 latest point table as the four-point gap between them and the Mumbai Indians is fourth.
