IPL 2023: Would like to continue my partnership with Ashwin: Yuzvendra Chahal on RR’s bowling performance

Rajasthan Royals is ready to play their first match and spinner Yuzvendra Chahal expressed his excitement while continuing his gameplay with Rajasthan Royals and seems more confident when Ashwin is on the same side. Here’s what the spinner had to say –

Yuzvendra Chahal: We are very excited, it’s the first match. Definitely, when you do well, it helps the team. I have had a very good partnership with Ashwin last year and we would like to continue that. We need to win games consistently and we need to work hard in every game as our goal is to not only reach the playoffs but reach the top two. We would have to travel a lot, as there will be home and away games and there will be back-to-back games. It’s a new journey for us, so the focus is on present. It is a challenging thing but there are breaks as well in the schedule so it’s fine.
