The 31-year-old bowler names two players from India and one from South Africa for the same.

Rajasthan Royals won their second successive game after thumping Mumbai Indians by 23 runs at the DY Patil Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday. Rohit Sharma-led team could only manage 170/7 in 20 overs against the good bowling attack of Rajasthan.

Jos Buttler scored a century while bowlers were influential throughout the game. RR’s Navdeep Saini and Yuzvendra Chahal got two wickets each against the most successful IPL team.

Chahal was unlucky to miss out on a certain hat-trick. He dismissed Tim David and Daniel Sams in the first two balls of his over, and his third ball went towards Karun Nair, but he dropped it.

The India spinner expressed his disappointment at missing out on the first potential hat-trick of his career but was happy with the win.

“Felt bad about it, but it’s okay. Part of the game. It is nice we won. It would have been nice if I had the hat-trick since I have never achieved this landmark in my career,’ said Chahal.

“The plan was to bowl a googly to a new batter since there was bounce and turn,” he added.
