Yash Dayal sent Dhoni to the pavilion in the last over. RCB becomes the fourth team to reach IPL 2024 playoffs

New Delhi. Fast bowler Yash Dayal played an important role in getting RCB the IPL playoff ticket. Dayal bowled amazingly in the 20th over against CSK in RCB’s last league match. He was preparing to bowl the 19th over but suddenly the captain asked him to bowl the 20th over. When this RCB bowler came to bowl the last over of the match, the legendary Mahendra Singh Dhoni was on strike. Dhoni sent Yash’s first full toss ball of this over straight outside the stadium. After this Yash remembered Rinku Singh. Last year, Rinku Singh had hit 5 consecutive sixes in one over of Yash. However, after hitting a six on the first ball, Yash controlled himself and got the team a ticket for the playoffs.

In the last IPL season, KKR batsman Rinku Singh gave a miraculous victory to Kolkata Knight Riders by hitting five sixes off Yash Dayal in a row. When Dayal was handed the last over on Saturday, there were Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja in front who needed just 17 runs. Taking a lesson from past experience, Dayal bowled a slow ball after Dhoni’s six and dashed Chennai’s hopes by taking the wicket of the former Indian captain. He gave only one run on the next four balls.

Great entry for RCB in the playoffs… Captured the fourth position, the tables turned in the last over.

Dayal was released by Gujarat Titans last year
After last season, Dayal was released by Gujarat Titans. RCB bought him in the auction for Rs 5 crore and living up to the team’s trust, Dayal also healed his past wounds. He said, ‘When I hit a six on the first ball, I remembered last year. But I bowled well throughout the season. I kept telling myself that all I needed was one good ball. I didn’t need to look at the scoreboard. I just had to bowl well. I maintained confidence.

‘That made me nervous’
According to Yash Dayal, ‘I was nervous because of whatever happened last time. But after coming to the RCB team, I worked hard and focused only on bowling good balls. Seniors did not scold me and always stood by me. This helped me a lot. This bowler from Prayagraj was actually supposed to bowl the 19th over but suddenly the decision was taken to give him the last over. Dayal said, ‘I had to bowl the 19th over but suddenly DK Bhaiya (Dinesh Karthik) and Faf (Du Plessis) talked. I don’t know what he said. He said that Lockie will bowl the 19th over and I will bowl the last over. RCB became the fourth team to reach the IPL 2024 playoffs.
