Chennai Super Kings lost their opening fixture against Delhi Capitals in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League. Although they showcased their mettle with the bat, they just couldn’t defend the total.
However, they made a stellar rebound in the next four games. They got the better of Punjab Kings, Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders. With that, they registered a hat-trick of wins this season.
But they didn’t stop there. They also gave it all against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday in their fifth game. Batting first, CSK could garner 191 for the loss of 4 wickets in their allotted quota of 20 overs.
Ravindra Jadeja single-handedly took the RCB’s bowling attack to the cleaners with relative ease. The all-rounder scored an imperious 62 off 28 balls. His innings was laced with 4 boundaries and 5 sixes at a strike rate of over 222.
The best part of his innings came when he smashed Harshal Patel for 37 runs in an over. Jadeja not only unleashed his true colours with the bat but also with the ball and also on the field as well.
The 32-year-old sent Daniel Christian packing by hitting the stumps. After that, he took three important wickets for his side in his quota of 4 overs. Moreover, he conceded only 13 runs where he also bowled a maiden wicket over.
MS Dhoni chips in with brilliance advice to Ravindra Jadeja
Overall, it was Ravindra Jadeja vs Royal Challengers Bangalore. The 32-year-old experienced all-rounder got rid of Washington Sundar, Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers in his bowling spell. Moreover, MS Dhoni also played his part by helping out Jadeja get rid of in-form Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell.
When the Big Show was on strike, Dhoni was heard saying something important to Jadeja. The CSK captain gave advice to the all-rounder to dismiss the all-rounder.“Maarne de, soch ke maar mat khana (Translation: Let him hit, don’t be afraid of getting hit),” MS Dhoni said. After that, Jadeja made a mess of Maxwell’s leg stump.
