IPL 2024: Yuzvendra Chahal Becomes First Player To Complete 200 Wickets In IPL

Date:

Jaipur: Rajasthan Royals (RR) spinner Yuzvendra Chahal made history on Monday by becoming the first bowler to secure 200 wickets in the Indian Premier League (IPL). The veteran Indian spinner achieved this significant milestone during the IPL match against Mumbai Indians (MI) at the Sawai Man Singh Stadium.

Chahal’s remarkable achievement of reaching 200 IPL wickets came during the eighth over of the match. Chahal executed a brilliant catch and bowled Afghanistan and Mumbai Indians all-rounder Mohammed Nabi for 23 runs, marking his double century of wickets in the IPL.

The Indian Premier League took to its official X (formerly Twitter), to announce the significant milstone achieved by the veteran spinner. The post read, “First bowler in the history of IPL to take 200 wickets! 🙌 Congratulations Yuzvendra Chahal 👏👏”

In 153 matches, Chahal has taken 200 wickets at an average of 21.37, with the best figures of 5/40. He has taken six four-wicket hauls and a five-wicket haul during his IPL career.

Chahal played for Mumbai Indians (2011-13), and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) (2014-21) before joining Rajasthan Royals in 2022. While he had no wickets for MI in the only match he played, he took 139 wickets for RCB in 113 matches. Now for RR, he has taken 61 wickets in 39 matches.

He is only the third player to get 200 or more wickets in a T20 competition, with England’s Danny Briggs (219 wickets) and Samit Patel (208 wickets) having gone past 200 wickets in the T20 Cup in England.
