RR vs RCB, IPL 2021: Yuzvendra Chahal’s consistent show continues, puts pressure on T20 World Cup selectors

RCB leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal on Wednesday continued his sensational bowling performance in IPL 2021. He returned with a couple of wickets and gave away just 18 runs in his quota of 4 overs. The 31-year-old got rid off the dangerous Liam Livingstone to help RCB restrict RR to a below-par total. The exceptional bowling performance comes days after his 3/11 against MI.

Yuzvendra Chahal was left out of India’s T20 World Cup squad in favour of Rahul Chahar and Varun Chakravarthy. The RCB spinner however has taken the snub in his stride and is doing his bit with the ball, putting in a stellar performance against Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals.

  • Yuzvendra Chahal has so far taken 7 wickets in the last 4 Phase 2 matches.
  • He has one of the most impressive economy rate of 7.24 in IPL 2021.
  • RCB need to win 2/4 matches to qualify in the playoffs. Chahal’s consistent show can help guide RCB to their maiden IPL title.
  • He will look to repeat his last season’s heroics where he had scalped 21 wickets in UAE.

Harbhajan Singh and Parth Jindal went as far as naming him India’s best spinner in T20 cricket as he continues to shine in Phase 2.
