Yuzvendra Chahal, the gamechanger of yesterday’s match between Rajasthan Royals & Kolkata Knight Riders. We had witnessed an epic encounter yesterday as Rajasthan won by just 7 runs after putting a whopping total of 217 for 5. Earlier in the match, Jos Butler put on a centurion effort and back-to-back run-scoring partnerships with Padikkal & Samson. He scored his second century of this season thereby helping Rajasthan reach this mammoth score.
Rajasthan was on the better side after their huge total, but things were not so cool as they thought as Kolkata began to show their monstrous side. Shreyas Iyer and Aron Finch dominated the Rajasthan bowling unit and at one point in time, their batting made us think of another loss for Sanju and party.
Then came our hero, Chahal taking 4 wickets in an over including a hattrick totally damaging KKR. He was completely beaten in his first 3 overs and then came the redemption in the fourth over. His performance in the last over made us remember why he is called the best leg spinner in India at the moment. Kudos to him for putting on a sensational performance after getting beaten so hard for the last 3 overs. Captain Sanju Samson must also be praised at this moment for trusting and giving the ball to Chahal in the crucial over under this much pressure.
Chahal rewarded his captain by picking 4 wickets in that over and thereby changed the overall momentum of the match. This performance was a huge blow not only for Kolkata but also for Bangalore for letting him go. Fans are screaming all over Twitter heaping huge praises for Chahal and Rajasthan.
Rajasthan is now back on the winning track, after suffering 2 losses. Rajasthan is now sitting second to Gujarat on the point table. Let them have a Royal performance in the coming matches.
