This bowler is making a big deal in IPL 2022, being compared with Yuzvendra Chahal


IPL 2022: Mike Hesson, Director of Cricket, Royal Challengers Bangalore, has praised the performance of leg spin all-rounder Wanindu Hasaranga in IPL 2022. Mike Hesson said that he is consistently dismissing big players in the tournament. Hasaranga is second in the list of highest wicket-takers in IPL 2022 with 21 wickets in 12 matches at an economy rate of 7.85. Even though Bangalore may have missed out on their long-serving wrist spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, Hasaranga hasn’t let Chahal’s absence down with his performances.

This bowler is making a big fuss in IPL 2022

Hesson said, ‘From the start of the season, Hasranga is always getting the big players out, he is taking wickets in the middle, which has given us strength. He is doing really good work for us. It was really difficult to fill the place of a player like Yuzvendra Chahal, because he was an icon player in RCB. In Bangalore’s 67-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad, Hasaranga overcame the batting order and took 5/18, his first five-wicket haul in IPL history. With Bengaluru taking on Punjab Kings at the Brabourne Stadium on Friday, Hasaranga is expected to strengthen the team’s chances of making the playoffs.

Being compared to Yuzvendra Chahal

Hasranga said, ‘I am really happy that I am the second highest wicket-taker in this tournament. RCB is one of the best franchises. We work as a family all the time, with the head coaches, Sanjay Bangar and Mike Hesson and the entire staff bowling and supporting me.

Played the second half of last year with Chahal

Hasranga further said, ‘They are all very experienced and it is very good for us. I played the second half of last year with Chahal, so we are very good friends. I have always admired his bowling and he does the same thing. I like to take on challenges, so it is very easy for me to handle pressure situations. The spin bowling coach, former India left-arm spinner Sridharan Sriram has helped Hasranga at his best during IPL 2022.
