New Delhi: In the 30th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022), Yuzvendra Chahal wreaked havoc with his spin on Monday. The Rajasthan Royals (RR) spinner bowled brilliantly to take a hat-trick against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR). Due to this performance of Chahal, Rajasthan Royals defeated KKR by 7 runs.
Chahal completed the hat-trick by sending Shreyas Iyer, Shivam Mavi and Pat Cummins to the pavilion in the 17th over of the innings on 3 consecutive balls, the 21st hat-trick in the history of IPL. When Chahal completed his hat-trick by taking the wicket of Pat Cummins, the entire stadium started celebrating. Chahal repeated an old meme of himself while running with joy. Chahal lay on the field just like lying near the boundary line during the match against Sri Lanka in the 2019 ODI World Cup. Fans liked Chahal's style of relaxing like this, then for a long time, memes were made about it on social media. In the presentation ceremony after the match against Kolkata was over, he mentioned this meme.
