Rajasthan Royals leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal has created history by becoming the first bowler to reach the elusive milestone of 200 scalps. The veteran leg-spinner went on to dismiss Mumbai Indians' Mohammad Nabi for his 200th scalp the Afghanistan all-rounder chipped one back to the bowler, giving Chahal an extremely straight forward catch in the ongoing clash in Jaipur.

The dismissal occurred in the 8th over as Sanju Samson brought Chahal to bowl for the first time in the innings. Nabi, who had smashed Avesh Khan for a few boundaries in the right-arm speedster's opening over, tried to turn the ball to the on-side. However, he could only get a leading edge, with the 33-year-old taking a simple catch. He is also the leading wicket-taker of the season.

After Mumbai Indians skipper Hardik Pandya chose to bowl first, Trent Boult and Sandeep Sharma left the visiting side reeling at 20-3. Boult got the better of Rohit while the returning Sandeep dismissed Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav. The Royals already beat the five-time champions earlier in the season by 6 wickets at the Wankhede Stadium.
