Rajasthan Royals all-rounder Ben Stokes believes that leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal of Royal Challengers Bangalore bowled brilliantly against Kolkata Knight Riders on Monday and therefore Chahal should have won the ‘man of the match’ award in that match.
In the IPL-13 match held in Sharjah on Monday, the team of Royal Challengers Bangalore defeated Kolkata by 82 runs. Chahal took the wicket of KKR captain Dinesh Karthik for 12 runs in four overs.
Stokes tweeted after the match, ‘Yuzvendra Chahal should have been chosen as’ Man of the Match’ in this match of batsmen. Great bowling attack especially when this match was played in Sharjah.
Royal Challengers Bangalore, batting first, scored 194 for two wickets. AB de Villiers had scored 73 runs off 33 balls.
In his innings, he hit five fours and six sixes and for this he was chosen as the ‘Man of the Match’. Chahal has taken 10 wickets so far this season. Chahal is at number five in the list of bowlers taking the most wickets. Bengaluru’s team, led by Virat Kohli, has reached number three in the table with five wins from seven matches.
