IPL 2022: Yuzvendra Chahal claims first hat-trick of the season | Cricket News

MUMBAI: Rajasthan Royals spinner Yuzvendra Chahal took the first season hat-trick of IPL in a dramatic four-wicket over against Kolkata Knight Riders on Monday.
Chahal sent back skipper Shreyas Iyer for 85 in Kolkata’s chase of 218 for victory and then took down Shivam Mavi and Pat Cummins to return figures of 5-40 in Mumbai.

The match went down to the wire but Rajasthan held their nerves as they won the match by 7 runs after bowling out Kolkata for 210 in 19.4 overs. Chahal’s 5-40 was also his first five-for in the IPL.

It is the 21st hat-trick in the Indian Premier League and fifth by a Royals bowler after Ajit Chandila, Pravin Tambe, Shane Watson and Shreyas Gopal.
