Yuzvendra Chahal’s dip in bowling form has been brought under the scanner. Even the bowler himself has begun feeling the pressure. And, he looked relieved after he dismissed Nitish Rana as his first wicket of IPL 2021. Meanwhile, his wife and renowned choreographer Dhanashree Verma were seen emotional and tears after her husband took his maiden wicket of the tournament.
Chahal is one of the leading spinners for RCB for a long. But, this season he didn’t get to an expected start to his tournament. The leg-spinner had to wait for 2 games in order to grab his first wicket. Chahal went wicketless against Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

However, finally, he got his first of the tournament as KKR in-form opener Nitish Rana. It came as a big relief for the bowler and he dismissed the next dangerous batsman Andre Russell in the same game. The Haryana-born spinner finished with decent bowling figures of 2-34 that came in the winning cause.
Chahal’s wife got emotional after her husband took his maiden wicket of the tournament. The eagled eye cameraperson even recorded her with eyes full of tears.
Post-match, Chahal accepted that sometimes it happens with the bowlers that they might not get wicket instead of bowling well with consistency.
“It’s an amazing feeling, when you are bowling well and not getting wickets, sometimes hurts. But getting that first wicket, I felt a bit emotional. I was trying to get him (Andre Russell) out, I wanted to bowl wider because the leg-side boundary was shorter, so after three balls, I changed my field,” Chahal was quoted as saying after the game.
“Their run-rate was over 10, I wanted to bowl more dot balls and just stuck to my plan. It will be a totally different wicket in Mumbai, there will be a slight turn but usually will be good for batting,” the tweaker added.
