KEY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Rajasthan Royals (RR) will play Gujarat Titans (GT) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 final on Sunday.
  • Legendary spinner Harbhajan Singh has lauded an Indian bowler ahead of the IPL 2022 final.
  • The IPL icon has hailed the star bowler as the Jos Buttler of bowling department.
Legendary spinner Harbhajan Singh had nothing but praise for Indian spin wizard Yuzvendra Chahal in the build-up to the final of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. Chahal-starrer RR side will meet Hardik Pandya’s Gujarat Titans (GT) in the final of the IPL 2022 at the Narendra Modi Stadium on Sunday. Released by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) ahead of the new season of the world’s richest T20 league, Chahal was roped in by former champions Rajasthan Royals at the mega auction.
Joining forces with Ravichandran Ashwin, spinner Chahal played an instrumental role in completing RR’s return to the business end of the competition. Samson’s Rajasthan Royals have entered the summit clash of an IPL season for the first time after winning the inaugural edition of the cash-rich league in 2008. Speaking ahead of Rajasthan Royals’ mouthwatering clash with new entrants Gujarat Titans, IPL icon Harbhajan showered praise on the senior spinner of the Samson-led side. Harbhajan hailed Chahal as the Jos Buttler of the bowling department.

“Yuzvendra Chahal is the Jos Buttler of the bowling department. He has won matches with his bowling performances. In my opinion, he is the only slow bowler in the IPL who is bowling like a spinner. He is bowling slowly in the air, spinning the ball and enticing the batters to come out of the crease and go after him. Other spinners are bowling quick and are spinners for namesake. Spinners are supposed to spin the ball. That’s where you will get wickets,” Harbhajan told Sportskeeda ahead of the IPL 2022 final.
