Yuzvendra Chahal on Thursday once again showed why he has been Virat Kohli’s go-to man in the Indian Premier League. With Mayank Agarwal and KL Rahul putting on a fifty stand in the Powerplay, the RCB needed a breakthrough to stem the flow of runs.
Kohli brought Chahal and his golden arm immediately came to the fore. The leggie cleaned up Agarwal with a googly to break a flourishing opening stand for Kings XI Punjab. Agarwal attempted to drive a good length ball on off through the covers, but the ball snuck through the gap between bat and pad to crash into the stumps.
