Ravindra Jadeja is proving his worth again in T20 cricket with a fine all round display in the ongoing game between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings. The CSK allrounder played a fine knock of 25 off just 10 balls before castling the dangerous Jonny Bairstow with a fine delivery.
Ravindra Jadeja got rid of the England star at a crucial time. The right-handed batsman and Kane Williamson had just steadied the ship for SRH after their side lost two quick wickets to find itself reeling at 27 for 2 from 23 for no loss.
But before they could completely revive SRH’s fortunes, Ravindra Jadeja sent back Bairstow to end the 32 run-stand. It was a straighter delivery by Ravindra Jadeja, beating Bairstow who tried to play on his leg side. The ball skidded along the deck before going on to hit the middle-stump.
As far as the match is concerned, CSK have put up a challenging total of 167 for 6 in the allotted 20 overs. Sam Curran, who was promoted as an opener for the first time, played a quick knock of 31 to give the side the early impetus. Shane Watson top-scored with 42 while Ambati Rayudu scored 41 as the duo shared an 81-run stand.
MS Dhoni (21 off 13) and Ravindra Jadeja (25 off 10) then played fine cameos to ensure CSK put up a challenging total. For SRH, Sandeep Sharma was the pick of the bowlers. He conceded only 19 runs off his four overs while taking two wickets. Khaleel Ahmed and T Natarajan picked up two wickets each too. At the time of compiling this report, SRH were on 99 for 4 in the 15th over.
Here is the clip of the dismissal:
