Yuzvendra Chahal Becomes Top Wicket-Taker in IPL History past Dwayne Bravo’s Record

Rajasthan Royals’ (RR) talismanic spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has become top wicket taker in Indian Premier League (IPL) history on Thursday, May 11. In a high-voltage match against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at Eden Gardens, Chahal claimed his 184th IPL wicket, surpassing former Chennai Super Kings’ star Dwayne Bravo’s record of 183 scalps.

The historic moment came when Chahal, playing his 143rd IPL match, induced KKR captain Nitish Rana into a sweep shot that was safely pouched by Shimron Hetmyer at deep square leg. This crucial wicket catapulted him to the top of the all-time wickets tally, ahead of other prominent bowlers like Piyush Chawla (174), Amit Mishra (172), and Ravichandran Ashwin (171).

Chahal, who claimed the Purple Cap in the previous IPL season, has been a standout performer for the Royals this year, having already taken 17 wickets in the 11 games leading up to the clash against KKR. His leadership and consistency have made him a reliable weapon in the arsenal of RR captain Sanju Samson.

His economy rate of 7.66 throughout his IPL career is a testament to his ability to keep the run-flow in check. His best figures in the tournament, 5/40, came in IPL 2022, showcasing his knack for making pivotal breakthroughs.

In the ongoing season, Chahal’s lethal spin bowling was on full display when he returned impressive figures of 4/17 against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), despite RR losing the high-scoring encounter by 4 wickets. His performance against KKR was no less impressive, as he claimed four wickets again, conceding just 25 runs in his quota of four overs. With this, he moved to the top of the wicket-takers list in the current competition with 21 wickets, reclaiming the Purple Cap.

Adding to his long list of accolades, Chahal had earlier touched another significant milestone in the tournament, becoming the first Indian bowler to take 300 T20 wickets. The feat was achieved when he dismissed SRH’s star batter, Harry Brook. With a growing tally of records and milestones, Yuzvendra Chahal continues to establish himself as a titan of IPL cricket.
