Chahal claims first hat-trick of IPL season

Rajasthan Royals spinner Yuzvendra Chahal took the first season hat-trick of IPL in a dramatic four-wicket over against Kolkata Knight Riders on Monday. Chahal sent back skipper Shreyas Iyer for 85 in Kolkata's chase of 218 for victory and then took down Shivam Mavi and Pat

Cummins to return figures of 5-40 in Mumbai. It is the 21st hat-trick in the Indian Premier League and fifth by a Royals bowler after Ajit Chandila, Pravin Tambe, Shane Watson and Shreyas Gopal. Jos Buttler's 103 and Chahal’s hat-trick helped Rajasthan Royals edge out Kolkata Knight Riders by seven runs. The England batter smashed his second IPL century this season to

power Royals to 217 for five -- the highest total of this edition. Royals, who won the inaugural edition under Australia great Shane Warne, recorded their fourth win in six matches to climb to second behind table-toppers Gujarat Titans on the 15th birthday of IPL.
