Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) stars Yuzvendra Chahal and AB de Villiers decided to take some time out of their hectic preparations for the Indian Premier League (IPL) to have some fun shooting for an ad or promo. In a video that Chahal shares on Instagram, De Villiers can be seen riding him around the set of the shoot, while John Denver’s classic “Country Roads” plays in the background. ‘Take me home,’ Chahal captioned the video, borrowing the lyrics from the famous song.
However, Chahal’s fiancé, Dhanashree Verma, crashed the video and wrote an epic commentary for the leg spinner.
“You can relax until the time I’m not there,” she remarked.
The comment left fans in splits, with Chahal himself obediently replying “yes yes”.
RCB is in Dubai preparing for the postponed IPL 2020, which will take place in the United Arab Emirates.
The star-studded team has yet to win their first IPL trophy, after reaching the finals three times, but falling short each time.
However, captain Virat Kohli said he thinks this is the most balanced their side has been since 2016, when they last reached the final, only to lose to SunRisers Hyderabad.
He also said he had never felt so calm entering a new season.
Chahal and de Villiers will both be crucial if RCB is to make a serious bid for the title. While the South African is one of the deadliest hitters in the world, Chahal hopes to thrive even more on the slow throws in the UAE.
RCB kicks off their 2020 campaign against their opponents in the 2016 final, SunRisers Hyderabad on September 21.
