The bowler Ravindra Jadeja may not have had success against Punjab Kings but the fielder Ravindra Jadeja certainly did. Considered as one of the best fielders in the world, the 32-year-old again showed his as he helped Chennai Super Kings pick up not one but two wickets courtesy of his brilliant fielding.
First, he sent Punjab Kings packing with a brilliant throw from short cover in the third over. Chris Gayle nudged the ball towards backward point and hesitated while taking a single. Rahul, from the non-striker’s end, rushed to complete the single but Jadeja was quick enough to crack the stumps with a direct hit.
Then he took a brilliant diving catch in the fifth over to dismiss the dangerous Chris Gayle. In an attempt to slice a slower delivery towards the backward point, Gayle hit it to Jadeja and the all-rounder made no mistake to complete the diving catch.
