If it was not for the dropped catch, Royal Challengers Bangalore could have chased a rather low total. Making full utilise of the second opportunity Ravindra Jadeja went on to play a thunderous knock of 62 from 28 deliveries, helping the Chennai Super Kings pile a challenging 191/4 in their 20 overs.
Such was Jadeja’s impact that 37 runs came off in the final over bowled by Harshal Patel, the man who had earlier brought RCB back in the contest, after some heavy hitting by Faf du Plessis and Suresh Raina.
Ravindra Jadeja became just the seventh batsman in T20 history to score 36 runs from a single over. He joins the list alongside Yuvraj Singh, Chris Gayle, Ross Whiteley, Kieron Pollard, Hazratullah Zazai, and Leo Carter.
