IPL 2022: “Chahal showed why leg spinners are considered Match winners in IPL”, says Malinga

Yuzvendra Chahal recorded the first hat-trick of this IPL season when he sent 3 batsmen back to back in Monday’s RR against KKR. The thrilling 17th over marked a huge contribution to RR’s win yesterday. Let us have a look at what has been said by Malinga on Chahal.

Chahal achieved a five-wicket haul by conceding 40 runs in 4 overs. He dismissed Venkatesh Iyer with his first ball in the 17th over, followed by Shreyas Iyer, Shivam Mavi, and Pat Cummins off the fourth, fifth, and sixth balls to completely turn the game around 180 degrees and hand RR a close seven-run win over Kolkata Knight Riders.

Lasith Malinga on Yuzvendra Chahal, a First Hat-Trick of this IPL season:

Lasith Malinga, the bowling coach of Rajasthan Royals said that Chahal has shown why leg spinners are considered the match winners. “Chahal has more international experience. He is the most experienced leg-spinner in the country and in this tournament. He showed how to control the skill. That’s more important for him going forward to prove he is good enough to play any competitive cricket,” said Malinga in the press conference followed by the match.

Further, he added “Leg-spinners have more wicket-taking options and he showed today how he can get wickets and changed the game in a single over. I think he showed all the leg-spinners that they are the match-winning bowlers in this competition.”

Brendon McCullum, head coach of KKR, said it was a fantastic game of cricket, but Chahal and Buttler just stole the game away from his team.

“You can’t allow good players like Chahal to enter the game when there’s pressure on. We played a good game but just made a couple of silly mistakes. But that’s what happens sometimes. Jos Buttler got a hundred on their side, Yuzi Chahal got a five-for including a hat-trick and we lost by seven runs, so we played a good game but ran second,” he added.
