Yuzvendra Chahal discusses his famous sliding celebration. Chahal bowled a match-winning spell and a hat-trick against the Kolkata Knight Riders.
Yuzvendra Chahal of the Rajasthan Royals recently revealed the reason for his famous celebration after picking up a five-wicket haul in the ongoing IPL 2022 edition. Chahal has been in excellent form this season and has played a significant role in his franchise’s successful run in IPL 2022. With 22 wickets in 11 games this season, the 31-year-old is at the top of the wicket-takers list for bowlers and has looked in great rhythm.
Chahal turned around the game for his team against the Kolkata Knight Riders with a brilliant five-wicket haul and a hat-trick. It was his first tournament hat-trick, and he finished with 5/40 in 4 overs. However, his reaction after picking up the fifer was most notable, as he ran and slid on the ground with his arms bent on his knees.
Yuvzendra Chahal recalls an incident during the 2019 World Cup.
Opening up about it, Chahal recalled an incident during the 2019 World Cup in which he was benched for a game and was lying on the ground, which prompted numerous meme posts about him. He noted that it was unique to him and only took the best parts of the posts. The leg-spinner went on to say that he had decided to do the pose as a celebration after picking up a fifer.
“Our world cup was on in 2019, and I was not playing that match and was lying outside the stadium.” So I had no idea the post had become quite famous. I later discovered that many memes were created on it, so it became quite special to me. “I then decided that whenever I took five wickets in a match, I would do this pose as a celebration,” Chahal said in a Sharechat conversation.
Meanwhile, we are nearing the end of the IPL 2022 season, and Chahal would like to extend his sensational run to lead his team to victory.
