New Delhi: Bowled a wicket-taking delivery, only to realise that it was a no-ball. It's a sinking feeling for any bowler. That's what happened with Royal Challengers Bangalore bowler Yuzvendra Chahal yesterday during their IPL match against the Gujarat Lions at M Chinnaswamy Stadium.
Defending a paltry total of 134 all out in a much win match, Virat Kohli & Co needed all the lucks to turn things around. But that's not to be. In the tenth over, Chahal have Lions skipper Suresh Raina caught at deep mid-wicket. The Lions, having lost both the openers in Ishan Kishan and Brendon McCullum, themselves needed the skipper to stay there.
And as it turned out, luck went in favour of the Lions as Chahal's front foot overstepped to the chagrin of RCB supporters. Raina went onto play a pivotal role in the chase, scoring an unbeaten 34 of 30 balls. He helped Aaron Finch go berserk at the other end, scoring 72 off 34 balls.
