The 2014 Indian Premier League (IPL) was the breakthrough season for Chahal as he delivered several terrific spells and bagged a lot of eyeballs.

Meanwhile, IPL 2020 is most likely to place later this year as the ICC T20 World Cup has been postponed officially. However, IPL governing council chairman Brijesh Patel has announced that the tournament will take place in UAE amid COVID-19 crisis. As per the tentative schedule, the marquee tournament will be played from September 26 to November 7.

However, Chahal might take field even before the start of the tournament as some stakeholders in BCCI reportedly want the Indian team to play a T20I series against South Africa ahead of the marquee tournament.
