Chennai Super Kings star all rounder Ravindra Jadeja is stealing all the limelight after RCB vs CSK match in Wankhede. He smacked five sixes and a four off Harshal Patel to churn out 37 runs in an over. CSK, thanks to his efforts, managed to post a brilliant total of 191 runs for the loss of four wickets after their 20 overs.
Jadeja remained unbeaten on 62 runs off just 28 balls with four fours and five sixes to his name. Here is the sequence of the 20th over of the CSK innings: 6 6 N6 6 2 6 4
Harshal Patel, Purple Cap holder, had figures of 3/14 in 3 overs before the final over assault. He finished with unflattering figures of 3/51.
The record for the most runs scored in an over in the IPL is now jointly held by Jadeja and Chris Gayle, who had also smashed 37 runs in an over in IPL 2011. Gayle, then playing for RCB, had sent Kochi Tuskers Kerala’s Prasanth Parameshwaran to the cleaners on that occasion.
In reply, Royal Challengers Bangalore failed to chase the target and fell 69-runs short. With this, Chennai Super Kings end Royal Challengers Bangalore’s 4-match winning streak in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
In terms of bowling, Jadeja finished with figures of 3/13 in 4 overs as he got a standing ovation from the team owners and teammates at the Wankhede Stadium. To go with the game-changing bowling spell, Jadeja also ran Dan Christian out for 1 with a direct hit. Notably, it was Christian who dropped the all-rounder when he was batting on 0.
Jadeja’s Contribution To CSK vs RCB:
62 runs from 28 balls, 3/13 and a run-out. It seemed as if it was Jadeja vs RCB on Sunday and the CSK all-rounder won the battle, hands down.
