Rajasthan Royals‘ star spinner Yuzvendra Chahal stole the show on Monday during the IPL 2022 match against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Brabourne Stadium. All thanks to his fiery bowling spells Chahal proved why leg-spinners are considered match-winners in the Indian Premier League.
The match was balanced with four overs remaining as the Shreyas Iyer-led side needed 40 runs to win and this is when Yuzvendra Chahal walked in and snatched the game away from KKR. Shreyas Iyer was playing the captain’s knock and was looking all set to take his team to the victory lines.
After Chahal’s first three overs were plundered for 38 runs, he made a comeback and delivered a dream over. He only gave away 2 runs and picked 4 wickets, which also included a hat-trick. It was the 17th over of the second innings when Chahal was back for his fourth over.
HAT-TRICK for @yuzi_chahal! 🙌 🙌
Absolute scenes at the Brabourne Stadium – CCI. 👍
Brilliant stuff from the @rajasthanroyals spinner. 👏 👏
