In the 56th match of IPL 2024, Rajasthan Royals spinner Yajuvendra Chahal created history. At the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, Rajasthan Royals captain Sanju Samson won the toss and decided to bowl first, after which Delhi Capitals scored 221 runs for 8 wickets in 20 overs with the help of half-centuries from openers Abhishek Porel and Jake Fraser-McGurk. In this match, Yuzvendra Chahal got the only success in the form of Rishabh Pant. Chahal proved to be very expensive in the match and he gave 48 runs in four overs. However, he created history by taking the wicket of Pant.

Actually, in the form of Rishabh Pant, Yuzvendra Chahal took the 350th wicket of his career in T20 cricket and Chahal has become the first Indian bowler to reach this milestone in T20 cricket.
