Royal Challengers Bangalore spin spearhead Yuzvendra Chahal gave a cheeky send-off to Kings XI Punjab opener Mayank Agarwal after castling him in the ongoing game.
RCB were in dire need of a wicket when Yuzvendra Chahal came to bowl his second over. Chasing 172, KXIP had run away to 65 for no loss after seven overs when RCB skipper Virat Kohli recalled Chahal into the attack in a desperate attempt to break the partnership between Agarwal and KL Rahul.
Agarwal was batting on 38 off just 21 balls when Chahal came to bowl the eighth over of the innings. On the fifth delivery of that over, the right-handed batsman had hit Chahal for a six straight over his head. The leg-spinner, however, had the last laugh.
On the very next delivery after being hit for a six, the RCB spinner castled Agarwal to give his side the much-needed breakthrough. It was a tossed up delivery as Yuzvendra Chahal invited Agarwal to go for the big shot. Agarwal duly obliged but failed to make any connection with the ball.
The KXIP opener swung across the line and missed the ball completely. The ball went on to shatter his stumps. And as soon as the ball hit the stumps, a pumped-up Yuzvendra Chahal was seen giving Agarwal a send-off. He was seen gesturing goodbye to Agarwal before celebrating the dismissal with his teammates.
