TATA IPL 2022: Wasim Jaffer’s praise for ‘KulCha’ comeback wins hearts on the internet

In their Indian Premier League match against Delhi Capitals on Thursday, Kolkata Knight Riders totalled 146 for nine. With figures of 4/14 from three overs, wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav was perhaps the most striking bowler, while Mustafizur Rahman claimed three wickets in a stunning last over.

Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer took to Twitter to applaud Kuldeep Yadav, who took four wickets in the 41st match of the IPL 2022 against Kolkata Knight Riders, as well as Rajasthan Royals’ Yuzvendra Chahal, who is currently leading the purple cap standings. He tweeted, “Tough times don’t last tough people do. And these two are as tough as they come. So good to see KulCha back in form together”.

In his first over, Kuldeep Yadav struck twice, dismissing Baba Indrajith for 6 (8) and Sunil Narine for a golden duck. Shreyas Iyer then added some key runs in the middle before being knocked for 42 by Kuldeep, who also bowled Andre Russell for 0 in the same over.

After being asked to bat first against Delhi Capitals in the Indian Premier League match at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday, Kolkata Knight Riders got off to a rough start. Aaron Finch was packed on 3 by Chetan Sakariya, who is playing his first match of the season (7). Venkatesh Iyer, who was out of form, also left quickly on 6 (12).

In the current season, Chahal has established himself as the “Grand Master” of spin. In just eight games, the leg-spinner has taken 18 wickets, the most by any bowler thus far. He has a 7.09 economy and an average of 12.61. One fifer and one four-wicket haul round up the impressive tally.
