Mukesh Choudhary of Chennai Super Kings and Umesh Yadav of Kolkata Knight Riders both have four wickets each to become the first two players with most wickets in the first over of the ongoing Indian Premier League season, 2022.
After returning with spectacular bowling stats, CSK pacer Mukesh Choudhary laid the framework. In the 33rd match of the IPL 2022, he delivered the much-needed early impact by dismissing both openers Rohit Sharma and Ishan Kishan for ducks in the first over of MI’s innings.
In the 29th match against Gujarat Titans, he also dismissed Shubman Gill in the first over.
In the eighth game of the ongoing season, Umesh Yadav recorded his best IPL statistics against the Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the Wankhede Stadium. The toss was won by KKR, who chose to bowl.
Punjab continued to lose wickets, but Bhanuka Rajapaksa’s quick-fire 31 off nine deliveries and Kagiso Rabada’s late charge enabled them reach 137. Mayank Agarwal, Liam Livingstone, Harpreet Brar, and Rahul Chahar were all dismissed by Umesh.
Following them, Dushmanth Chameera of Lucknow Super Giants has 3 wickets in the first over so far.
