CSK vs PBKS: Ravindra Jadeja’s stellar show in field pays rich dividends for Chennai Super Kings – WATCH | Cricket News


MS Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings are having a great day on the field. The team in their second Indian Premier League clash against Punjab Kings on Friday started off on a great note, with seamer Deepak Chahar ripping apart the Punjab top-order. 

If Chahar has been on top with the ball, his teammate Ravindra Jadeja went on to produce some stellar fielding efforts, which saw Punjab lose their two premier batsmen KL Rahul and Chris Gayle cheaply. 

It all started in the fifth delivery of the opening over, when a slight hesitation between Gayle and Rahul led to Jadeja making use of the extra second and executing a brilliant run-out to send the Punjab skipper back in the dugout for 5 off 7 balls. 

After the brilliant run-out effort, Jadeja went on to produce another brilliant fielding display, and this time Gayle ended up being on the recieving end. In the third delivery of the fifth over, Jadeja dived forward to pluck a sharp low catch, which brought and end to Gayle’s stay in the middle. The Windies cricketer was dismissed on 10 from the same number of balls.  

Rahul had scored 91 from 50 balls, while Gayle had 40 off 28 deliveries in Punjab’s previous contest against Rajasthan Royals, which the former won by four runs.
