A couple of balls later, danger man Iyer (KKR captain) trapped in front of his stumps in the third ball of the over which was followed by the wicket of Shivam Mavi and Pat Cummins to complete the hattrick, ending with four wickets in a matter of seven balls to change the course of the match.


Chahal was adjudged the man of the match as well for his brilliant display with the ball he made the first-ever hattrick in IPL returned figures of 5 for 40 as RR went on to beat KKR by 7 runs.
