IPL 2024: RR change their bio to pay tribute to Yuzvendra Chahal on 200 IPL wicket milestone

RR paid a special tribute to Yuzvendra Chahal after he became the first player in the history of the IPL to complete 200 wickets. Chahal achieved this huge milestone during the match between RR and MI at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium, Jaipur.

Like every other franchise that would celebrate their players’ milestones, RR did the same by putting up a post for their star bowler. However, RR yet again showcased their strong social media game as they took it a notch ahead.

RR updated their bio on ‘X’ which read, “Yuzvendra Chahal plays for us.” They also used a goat and heart emoji alongside.

Chahal reached the milestone by dismissing MI’s Mohammad Nabi after he was introduced into the attack in the 8th over of the innings. On his 3rd delivery, Chahal bowled a floated legbreak, only to get Nabi caught and bowled. RR vs MI: Live score
