Shimron Hetmyer’s excellent catch allowed Chahal to dismiss KKR captain Nitish Rana, passing Dwayne Bravo in the competition’s list of wicket-takers. Before the game, Chahal and Bravo were tied with 183 wickets each, but Rana’s dismissal solidified the spinner’s place at the top of the list. 

Chahal accomplished this feat with the wicket of KKR captain Nitish Rana in his very first over of the game. He dismissed Venkatesh Iyer for a 42-ball 57, Shardul Thakur for 1, and the in-form Rinku Singh in his subsequent overs, bringing his season total to 21 wickets. Chahal currently leads the IPL 2023 in wickets taken.  

Chahal surpassed all-rounder Dwayne Bravo’s previous record of 183 wickets with his current total of 187 wickets in 143 games.
