CHENNAI: Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) spinner Yuzvendra Chahal added one other feather to his illustrious cap as he accomplished 100 games in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
Chahal achieved the feat when he stepped in the sphere towards Mumbai Indians in the 14th version of the money-wealthy league right here at MA Chidambaram Stadium on Friday.

The proper-arm-leg spinner, who made his debut for Mumbai Indians in 2013, has performed 99 games for his franchise RCB. The IPL 2021 tournament opener can also be Chahal’s two hundredth T20 match.

Chahal has taken 121 wickets in the money-wealthy league, leaking runs at an economic system of 7.67. In final yr’s IPL, the correct arm leg spinner scalped 21 wickets for RCB.

Meanwhile, RCB skipper Virat Kohli received the toss and has opted to bowl first towards Mumbai Indians in the opening recreation.
Glenn Maxwell, Kyle Jamieson and Rajat Patidar have made their debut for RCB.

“It’s unbelievable, a bit of a mini-break helped me I guess to win a toss. Going to bowl first. They’re a side who likes chasing. Good chance for us to get onto the park and create some intensity. With the balance we have this year we can do both, but have to understand who you’re playing against. We understand with the depth they have they have never out of the game. Bowling first was a no-brainer for us,” Kohli stated after successful the toss.
(*100*) the opposite hand, Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma stated: “Would’ve fielded first as well. But as a team we’ve batted well over the years. Nothing different for us. Bat well in the powerplay and set the game up for the big hitters. The entire square has been changed. Recently played a couple of Tests. Need to do what we do as a team, put our best foot forward. For us it’s a fresh year, don’t need to look at what’s happened in the past. Fresh year, new faces as well. Important for us to start well which we haven’t done in this tournament. Last game we played was a final in Dubai. Got only two changes from that lineup. Quinny is in quarantine, so he isn’t available. Lynn will make debut. And we have a six foot eight inch South African, Marco Jensen.”
