Yuzvendra Chahal Equals Imran Tahir's Massive Record In IPL

By H.JanGra May 21, 2022


Yuzvendra Chahal has been the go-to man for Rajasthan Royals with the ball in hand in IPL 2022

Chahal dismissed Ambati Rayudu and MS Dhoni as RR restricted CSK to 150 for six despite a whirlwind knock from Moeen Ali.

Courtesy the two wickets, Chahal equalled South African veteran Imran Tahir's record of most wickets taken by a spinner in a single edition of the Indian Premier League.

Chahal is currently leading the Purple Cap race with 26 wickets to his name this season

In the 2019 IPL, Tahir, playing for CSK, had taken 26 wickets in 17 matches.

Chahal has already matched that tally in just 14 games, and looks set to break the record with RR finishing second in the IPL points table and qualifying for the playoffs.
