‘Ha’ bowler in IPL 2022, comparison is being made with Yuzvendra Chahal

New Delhi: Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Director of Cricket Mike Hesson has lauded leg-spin all-rounder Oneindu Hasaranga’s performance in IPL 2022. Mike Hesson said that he is constantly knocking out the big players in the tournament. Hasaranga is the second highest wicket-taker in IPL 2022 with 21 wickets in 12 matches with an economy rate of 7.85. Though Bangalore lost their long-serving wrist spinner Yuzvendra Chahal, Hasaranga didn’t let Chahal’s absence go along with his performance.

This bowler is doing well in IPL 2022

Hesson said: “Hasrang has always been dismissing the big guys since the start of the season, taking wickets in the middle, which has given us strength. He is doing a really good job for us. It was really difficult to replace a player like Yuzvendra Chahal, as he was an iconic player in RCB. With a 67-run win over Sunrisers Hyderabad of Bangalore, Hasaranga stormed the batting order and took 5/18 wickets. Hasranga’s chances of making the playoffs are expected to be strengthened with Bengaluru taking on Punjab Kings at the Brabourne Stadium on Friday.

Yuzvendra is being compared to Chahali

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

Played with Chahlo in the second half of last year

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