Rajasthan Royals leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal regained the Purple Cap from Royal Challengers Bangalore counterpart Wanindu Hasaranga when he picked up a wicket in his win over Lucknow Super Giants in Match 63 of IPL 2022 on Sunday. However, the India leg-spinner performed down any competitors for the highest spot within the bowling charts between him and the Sri Lanka spinner.
Chahal picked up the large wicket of in-form batter Depaak Hooda which derailed Lucknow Super Giant’s chase. Hooda had hit 59 from simply 39 balls and was conserving LSG’s hopes alive however he was outfoxed by Chahal when he ran down the wicket to hit an enormous one.
Chahal took his tally to 24 wickets in 13 matches in IPL 2022 and wore the Purple Cap once more after dropping it for a quick interval. The leg-spinner has continued to shine within the IPL regardless of not having been retained by RCB on the finish of the final season.
Hasaranga took the Purple Cap for the primary time on Friday, May 13 when he picked up 2 wickets towards the Punjab Kings of their 54-run defeat.
Chahal stated he’s completely happy at any time when Hasaranga or his wrist-spin India teammate Kuldeep Yadav decide up wickets. Kuldeep has picked up 18 wickets in 12 matches for Delhi Capitals in a resurgent IPL run this season after a few robust years with Kolkata Knight Riders.
“Whatever he’s doing, I am happy for him because he’s like a brother to me. If he takes wickets, if Kuldeep takes wickets, I am happy with that,” Chahal stated.
Furthermore, Chahal stated he was not very completely happy along with his bowling efficiency regardless of selecting up the important thing opposition wicket. The leg-spinner gave away 42 runs in 4 overs.
However, R Ashwin, his spin companion, made up for it, ending with figures of 1/24 in his 4-over spell.
“We needed that win. For us to finish in the top-two, we had to win this match. I was a little bit disappointed with myself but I’ll definitely come back in the next game.
“When Hooda was batting so properly, leg-side was shorter, I did not wish to take any threat. I attempted to bowl a few flighted balls, he tried to hit sixes, so I did not wish to give any further runs,” Chahal added.
