In a podcast appearance earlier this year, Chahal, Franklin and the former Australia star claimed Andrew Symonds drunk, tied him up, taped his mouth shut and left him like that all night. Chahal said the incident happened while the trio were playing together Indian Premier League franchise Mumbai Indians in 2011.
And in a statement, Durham said: “We are aware of recent news of an incident in 2011 naming a member of our staff. As with all employee-related matters, the club will speak privately with all parties involved to establish the facts. “
Recalling the alleged incident, Chahal said: “It happened in 2011 when the Mumbai Indians won that Champions League. We were in Chennai.
“He [Symonds] had drunk a lot of ‘fruit juice’. I don’t know what he was thinking, but he and James Franklin got together and tied my hands and legs and said, “No, you have to open it.”
“They were so lost they taped my mouth shut and completely forgot about me during the party. Then they all left and in the morning someone came to clean [the room] and saw me and called some others and untied me.

“They asked me how long I’ve been there and I said ‘I’ve been here all night.’ So that turned out to be a fun story.”
When asked if any of the players had apologized to him, Chahal replied, “No, they said if you drink that much juice you can’t remember stuff in the morning.” Chahal added that he and Symonds now be close friends.
The weirdo’s comments resurfaced recently after he shared details of another incident that allegedly took place during his time at Mumbai Indians. In a video on The Rajasthan Royals YouTube channelChahal claimed one of his teammates was drunk and hung him from a 15th floor balcony during IPL 2013.
