Undoubtedly, Yuzvendra Chahal is one of the most popular cricketers on social media. The witty spinner is again in headlines after a wonderful spell in the 3rd match of IPL 2020. The 30-year old bowled a match defining spell in Dubai to hand RCB a glorious win in the season opener.
Playing after a long time, Yuzvendra Chahal looks in his elements from the first ball itself. There was dip, turn and loop throughout the 4-over spell he bowled. He came into bowling at a time when SRH was going strong, chasing a target of 164 runs. Jonny Bairstow and Manish Pandey both were looking in their elements.
The 30-year old, not only put breaks on the scoring but also took three important wickets of Jonny Bairstow, Manish Pandey and Vijay Shankar to left SRH reeling.

But surprisingly, Yuzi has not been in headlines for his bowling. It was a moment, when RCB captain Virat Kohli called him before the last ball of his spell and gave him some advice for new batsman Abhishek Sharma.
Yuzi, who has bowled a dream spell till now- conceding only 14 runs with 3 wickets in 3.5 overs, heard to his captain and bowled a flighted full delivery. Abhishek danced down the wicket and whacked the leg-spinner down the ground for a boundary. Surprisingly, it was the first boundary that Chahal has conceded in his four over spell and tweetarati has gone mad over Chahal for hearing his captain.
Here is the reaction of fans:
After a winning start of the tournament, RCB will play KXIP on 24th September in Dubai.
