The Indian leg-spinner, Yuzvendra Chahal was seen showering praises praise on Wanindu Hasaranga after he picked up three wickets in three overs for Royal Challengers Bangalore. The sixth match of IPL 2022 is currently underway in Mumbai, where the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) are locking horns with RCB. While KKR registered a dominating win over Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in their first match, they have struggled against RCB so far.
Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper, Faf du Plessis won the toss and invited the Kolkata Knight Riders to have a bat first at the DY Patil Stadium. In the previous match on this ground, RCB managed to post a huge score of 205 runs in the first innings which was chased by the Punjab Kings in 19 overs.
However, the Kolkata Knight Riders are 99/7 in 13 overs. The likes of Venkatesh Iyer, Shreyas Iyer, Nitish Rana and Sunil Narine failed to impress the fans as KKR’s top-order bowed down to the Royal Challengers Bangalore bowlers. Wanindu Hasaranga was the wrecker-in-chief with a three-wicket haul.
The Sri Lankan cricket team leg-spinner picked up the wickets of Shreyas Iyer, Sunil Narine and Sheldon Jackson to derail the Kolkata Knight Riders innings.
Wanindu Hasaranga is the number one leg-spinner of the Royal Challengers Bangalore team in IPL 2022. Once upon a time, this position belonged to current Rajasthan Royals member Yuzvendra Chahal. To date, Chahal holds the record for the most wickets by a bowler for RCB in IPL history.
Wanindu Hasaranga champion 🌟 💪#RCBvKKR
