Yuzvendra Chahal To become the first bowler to reach 200 IPL wickets

Yuzvendra Chahal To become the first bowler to reach 200 IPL wickets. Yuzvendra Chahal becomes the first bowler to accomplish this unique feat in Indian Premier League history.

Veteran Rajasthan Royals spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has written his name in the history books. The 33-year-old became the first-ever bowler to reach 200 wickets in the history of the Indian Premier League.

The wrist-spinner achieved this feat when he dismissed Mohammad Nabi in the eighth over of the first innings. The veteran Afghanistan all-rounder offered Chahal an easy return-catch to which the bowler obliged with glee. Once he took the catch, the bowler seemed a bit emotional and looked at the heavens.

What makes this feat even more impressive is that Yuzvendra Chahal accomplished it against his former team. Yuzvendra Chahal began his IPL career with the Mumbai Indians before being released at the end of the 2013 season.

Massive moment for Yuzvendra Chahal

Yuzvendra Chahal, an experienced spinner bowler, has struggled in recent years. The 33-year-old hasn’t played for India in almost a year. Chahal’s most recent outing came during the West Indies trip, when he played in the final T20I game and was struck for 51 runs in four overs.

The lanky spinner received more bad news earlier this year when his name was struck out of the BCCI central contracts. Chahal’s IPL 2024 debut has been amazing; he has shown great skill with the ball.

Everyone praised his 3/11 spell against the Mumbai Indians at Wankhede Stadium. Chahal is undoubtedly positioning himself as a strong contender for the June selection for the T20I World Cup with his steady performances.

Yuzvendra Chahal has participated in 153 Indian Premier League games thus far. After making just one game for the Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bengaluru selected Chahal.

Yuzvendra Chahal amassed 139 wickets in 113 games for the Royal Challengers Bengal, with a best of 4/25. Chahal was in for a major shock when they didn’t even select him during the IPL Auctions, following his release from RCB.

The lanky spinner’s move to the Rajasthan Royals appears to have paid off as he has taken 61 wickets in 38 games thus far, including a hat-trick against KKR. Chahal’s best of 5/40 was achieved in that same game, and he has picked up five four-wicket hauls for the men in pink.
