IPL 2019: Feels Good to Get the Purple Cap But Would Have Been Happy Had RCB Won the Match Says Yuzvendra Chahal
Royal Challengers Bangalore wrist spinner Yuzvendra Chahal managed to grab the Purple Cap after the conclusion of the 14th match of the tournament as he finished with impressive figures of 2/17 in his allotted four overs spell against the Rajasthan Royals yesterday. He is quite brilliant with his variations and had his fielders supported him well, Chahal could have pulled off a victory for Bangalore single-handedly. However, that was not the case as RR registered a quite convincing victory, in the end, to open their account in the tournament.
The leg-spinner bagged the wickets of Ajinkya Rahane and Jos Buttler to keep Royal Challengers Bangalore in the game. However, the target didn’t prove to be enough for RCB in the end. Chahal was delighted after getting the Purple cap but said that he would have been happier had RCB won the match. He feels that with 10 matches still left in the tournament, RCB can make a comeback of sorts.
Yuzvendra Chahal bags the Purple Cap
“Obviously it is a great feeling if you are the highest wicket-taker in the tournament but sad that we didn’t win the match. Leg spinners have many variations compared to other bowlers. We also get more turn from the surface. The googly and top spinner also spin more.
It is the fourth loss in a row, but we have 10 games to comeback. You need to stay positive in such a situation. I am used to conditions there, the sixth year with RCB, and I like bowling at the Chinnaswamy,” Yuzvendra Chahal told during the post-match interview.
Earlier in the day, it was another leg-spinner Shreyas Gopal who wreaked havoc and bagged 3 crucial wickets for just 11 runs in his 4 overs spell. Gopal bowled brilliantly and his wickets tally includes those of arguably the two greatest batsmen of the modern generation Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers. It was his exceptional bowling spell which helped Rajasthan Royals restrict Bangalore to a competitive score of 158 runs.
