Rajasthan Royals’ spinner Yuzvendra Chahal put up a stellar show with the ball against his former team Royal Challengers Bangalore as he picked crucial wickets during the game last night.
Yuzvendra Chahal, who has been one of the best performers for RCB for the last seven years was released by the team ahead of IPL 2022 mega-auctions, however, he was later on bought by Rajasthan Royals. This was for the first time in the ongoing season that Chahal was taking charge against his former team.
Chahal turned the game around with breakthroughs as he went on to remove RCB skipper Faf du Plessis in his first over of the match and then he went on to dismiss his former captain Virat Kohli and David Willey on successive deliveries in his second over. Apart from the exceptional bowling spell, which haunted his former team, he also assisted in Virat Kohli’s run-out.
However, more than Yuzvendra Chahal himself, it was his wife Dhanashree Verma who was delighted with the stellar show by Chahal. In fact, Dhanashree was so thrilled and pumped up after Chahal picked his third wicket of the game by removing Willey, that she was seen celebrating like crazy.
The video of the same has been going viral on the internet. Here, check out the viral video:

Talking about the game, Jos Buttler produced another stellar knock as he helped his team post a competitive total of 169/3 in 20 overs at the Wankhede Stadium here on Tuesday.
Later, while chasing the target, RCB started off well until Yuzvendra Chahal walked in and haunted his former team. From being at 48 for 0 in the Powerplay to then being at 88 for 5 wickets at the end of 13 overs, to winning the game with 5 balls to spare, RCB’s chase to victory turned out to be very interesting.
