Kings XI Punjab (now Punjab Kings) had posted a humongous total of 232 runs on the board in the first innings and put Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on the back seat in the contest. The RCB batting lineup was comprised of tremendous star power as they had the likes of Virat Kohli, Chris Gayle, and AB De Villiers in their batting roster. Punjab’s bowling unit did not ease off the pressure and pushed them further back with their bowling. Piyush Chawla was the pick of the bowlers for his team with 4 wickets and played a crucial role in a massive victory.

Piyush Chawla achieved his second-best bowling figures in his IPL career bowling for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), the franchise with which he had immense success. He bowled this spell against Delhi Daredevils in a group-stage match. KKR were defending 172 runs in the second innings and needed a comprehensive bowling performance to stop the opposition. Piyush Chawla once again stepped up and delivered for his team. He dismissed some of the most important batters in the Daredevils team including JP Duminy, Yuvraj Singh, and Kedar Jadhav. It was a narrow victory for KKR and Chawla’s contribution was decisive.

Kings were defending only 135 runs against Kolkata in their home ground, Eden Gardens, where Piyush Chawla came up with 3 wickets. He got the better of Manvinder Bisla, Yusuf Pathan, and Shakib Al Hasan which proved to be the difference in the end.
