Piyush Chawla was with the Mumbai Indians team before the BCCI and the IPL governing council decided to postpone the 2021 season after several players and staff of some IPL teams tested positive for the coronavirus.


Chawla was bought by Mumbai Indians for Rs 2.40 crore in the players’ auction held in February 2021.

The leg-spinner, however, didn’t feature in MI’s playing XI in the seven matches they played in IPL 2021.
