Yuzvendra Chahal Makes History with 200th IPL Wicket



Rajasthan Royals‘ star spinner Yuzvendra Chahal reached a significant milestone in the IPL, becoming the first player to accomplish the feat of 200 wickets in the tournament. His remarkable achievement took place during the match against Mumbai Indians at the iconic Sawai Mansing Stadium.

Chahal achieved this impressive record by dismissing Mohammad Nabi on the third delivery of the 8th over with a classic leg-spin delivery. The ball found the batsman’s edge and ended up safely in Chahal’s hands, marking his 200th wicket in his IPL career.

In the rich history of the IPL, we have seen notable bowlers leave their mark, such as Dwayne Bravo, Piyush Chawla, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, and others who have made significant contributions to their teams. However, it is Chahal who now stands out as the first player to join the exclusive 200-wicket club in IPL history.

Chahal’s statistics in the IPL portray his dominance as a bowler, with 200 wickets in 153 matches at an impressive economy rate of 7.70. His stellar performances have included a memorable 5/40, showcasing his talent and skill on the cricket field. Moreover, in the current season, Chahal has claimed 13 wickets in 8 matches, proving his consistency and value to the Rajasthan Royals’ squad.

Joining the likes of iconic bowlers like RP Singh, Lasith Malinga, and Jasprit Bumrah, who have reached significant milestones in the IPL, Chahal has solidified his place as one of the premier wicket-takers in the tournament’s history. With versatile skills and unwavering determination, Chahal has etched his name in the record books with this historic achievement.

Mumbai Indians, led by skipper Hardik Pandya, chose to bat first in the match. Despite their efforts, they could only post 151 runs in 16 overs, losing 4 wickets along the way. Currently, Tilak Varma and Nehal Wadhera are looking to steer Mumbai Indians towards a competitive total against Rajasthan Royals.

On the bowling front, Sandeep Sharma shone with two crucial wickets, while Trent Boult and Yuzvendra Chahal also made notable contributions with one wicket each. The match continues to unfold, with fans witnessing exceptional performances and thrilling moments at the Sawai Mansing Stadium.
