Yuzvendra Chahal is an interesting character on the cricket field. While his balls are difficult to play on-field, his sense of humor is also out of league at times. Before the start of the league, Rajasthan Royals shared a video in which he was seen dancing to a Punjabi song along with Joe Root.
Even before the match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday, a video with Chahal’s route has gone viral which is quite funny.
When the Rajasthan team reached Jaipur after playing the match against Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens, Chahal was seen having fun with Root at the airport. Rajasthan shared a video in which Chahal can be seen sitting on Root’s suitcase.
During this time Root was moving forward holding his trolley. During this, the trolley moves fast on the slope and Chahal collides with the players running ahead. After this all the players start laughing.
Chahal created history in the last match against Kolkata (KKR) at the Eden Gardens. He took four wickets in the match and became the highest wicket-taker in IPL history. He left behind Dwayne Bravo of West Indies in this matter. Chahal has 187 wickets in his name, while Bravo took 183 wickets. Chahal made the record after taking the wicket of Nitish Rana against Kolkata. Chahal and Bravo are followed by Piyush Chawla (174), Amit Mishra (172) and Ravichandran Ashwin (171).
Chahal has bowled brilliantly this season so far. He has taken 21 wickets in 12 matches. During this, his strike rate has been 12.81. That is, he is taking wickets this season after every 13 balls, he is currently second in the Purple Cap race.
Rashid Khan of Gujarat Titans has taken more wickets than him. Rashid currently has 23 wickets in 12 matches and currently holds the Purple Cap. Piyush Chawla is at number three. He has 19 wickets to his name. In the current season, leg-spinners are in the first three places among the most wicket-takers.
