Chahal was part of the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) franchise in the 14th edition of the Indian Premier League.

The T20 tournament was postponed indefinitely after several players and support staff tested positive for coronavirus within the IPL bio-bubble.

Chahal had picked up just four wickets in seven matches during IPL 2021 but his economic spells in the middle overs helped RCB to register five wins from seven games.
