It is well known that Yuzvendra Chahal is a big PUBG fan, but little did anyone imagine that the leg-spinner is also a WWE love. The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) spinner on Thursday posted a video of himself along with his “giant” teammate Kyle Jamieson and wrote that they are ready for “Wrestlemania 37”.
The 2nd week of April will mark the start of the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, the biggest T20 league. The 60-match tournament will kick off on April 9 and end on May 30, with Ahmedabad hosting the final. Not just IPL, this week will also mark the start of Wrestlemania 37, the biggest WWE event. The two-day show will start on April 10 and end the next day.
Before the start of IPL 2021 and Wrestlemania 37, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) spinner Yuzvendra Chahal shared a hilarious video of imitating The Undertaker's iconic slow walk. He was joined by Kyle Jamieson, who is as tall as The Undertaker. "The challengers are ready for wrestlemania @kylejamieson," Chahal wrote on Instagram.
The Undertaker is the biggest name to have performed at Wrestlemania. The Deadman held a 21-0 undefeated streak before it came to an end in 2014. The retired superstar ended his Wrestlemania career with 25 wins and 2 defeats. He last performed at Wrestlemania 36.
Talking of Chahal, the leggie will be leading RCB's spin attack in IPL 2021. He has been dropped from India's playing XI a few times in a couple of matches but he is RCB's highest wicket-taker. He will aim to make a solid comeback in IPL. Chahal has 121 scalps in 98 matches for the franchise.
Jamieson, who joined Chahal in the slow walk, will be making his IPL debut this season. Entering the IPL auction for the first time, Jamieson fetched oodles of bids and joined RCB for a record price of Rs 15 crore. The New Zealand all-rounder is a bowling all-rounder. Kohli emphasized on the need to make the most of the opportunities and stressed that it was the major reason behind RCB having a good season in IPL 2020. "Last year was a great step in the right direction for us and I feel like our squad is even stronger this year. I expect good things to happen again," Kohli added.
RCB kick off their IPL 2021 campaign against defending champions Mumbai Indians in the tournament opener on April 9. The Virat Kohli-led franchise made it to the second round last year.
