Star Rajasthan Royals bowler Yuzvendra Chahal has become the leading wicket-taker in the Indian Premier League history. He surpassed Dwayne Bravo’s tally of 183 wickets.
Chahal took 4 wickets against Kolkata Knight Riders as RR restricted KKR to 149/8. Chahal has 187 wickets in 143 matches.
Piyush Chawla and Amit Mishra sit at third and fourth spot with 174 and 172 wickets, respectively.
Chahal was asked to reveal his favorite wicket from the lot. The 32-year-old picked his dismissal of Pat Cummins as that scalp completed his hat trick.
“I always wanted a hat-trick in IPL. I will choose my hat-trick ball to Pat Cummins. That moment was special for me,” he said.
Chahal’s four wickets and Yashasvi Jaiswal’s 98 took Rajasthan to third in the points table.
