Yuzvendra Chahal is one of those cricketers who are known for their cool and composed behaviour. The right-arm leggie tries to handle every situation with ease and calmness. But Sunday evening saw Chahal also losing his cool at the on-field umpire during Rajasthan’s game against Lucknow. The incident happened in the 18th over of Lucknow innings.
With the match taking a thrilling turn, Sanju Samson called Chahal into the attack. The leggie also delivered for his captain as he bowled tight lines to Stoinis and Dushmantha Chameera. On the fifth delivery of the over, Chahal bowled a loopy leg spinner which turned a long way. The on-field umpire surprisingly gave it a wide. Seeing the umpire spreading his arms, Chahal lost his cool and started arguing with the umpire.

Chahal takes wicket on next ball!
Bowling an extra delivery in the over worked well for Chahal and Rajasthan as the leggies got rid of Dushmantha Chameera of a good leg spinner. Chahal trapped the batter LBW. Once again, the decision went against him but thankfully, he had a DRS referral in his pocket. However, on the last delivery of the over, Avesh Khan hit him for a six but Chahal had done what he was asked for. The wrist-spinner finished the game with four wickets in his pocket.
On the back of his two good overs at the fag end of the innings, Rajasthan successfully defended their total and bagged another win in the tournament. Kuldeep Sen also bowled brilliantly in his debut game for the Rajasthan Royals. The young pacer showed great composure to successfully defend 15 runs in the last over against Marcus Stoinis. Sen executed his yorkers to perfection and restricted Lucknow three runs short of RR’s total.
