Ravindra Jadeja rarely fails to make an impact while fielding. One of the best fielders in the world, the India star justified his reputation once again with a stunning effort in the ongoing match between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders.
Ravindra Jadeja and Faf du Plessis joined hands to take a stunning catch to send back the dangerous Sunil Narine. The West Indian, who had failed to deliver as an opener in the first four games, was demoted to number four in the ongoing game.

Narine, nonetheless, was sent out to bat after the dismissal of Nitish Rana. Known for his hard-hitting skills, the Knight Riders star started in fine fashion by slamming his West Indies teammate Dwayne Bravo for a six and four in the tenth over.
