Yuzvendra Chahal entered history books with Virat Kohli's big wicket in the IPL 2024 Eliminator in Ahmedabad on Wednesday, May 22. The experienced spinner managed to gain just one wicket as Rajasthan Royals restricted in-form Royal Challengers Bengaluru to just 172 after an impressive bowling performance.

Chahal, the leading wicket-taker in IPL history with over 200 wickets, trapped in-form Virat Kohli to take his 66th wicket for the Royals. He surpassed the former Rajasthan pacer Siddharth Trivedi to become the leading wicket-taker for the franchise in IPL. 

The 33-year-old legspinner took a wicket for 43 in the Eliminator and now boasts 66 wickets in 45 IPL innings for Rajasthan. Trivedi held

the previous record with 65 wickets in 75 innings during his seven-year stint with the Royals.
