IPL 2020: Twitterati Slam Kedar Jadhav For His Woeful Knock Against Kolkata Knight Riders

Chennai Super Kings (CSK) Kedar Jadhav is having a torrid time in this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL). The right-hander seems awfully short of form and confidence. He’s batted on four occasions in the six matches he’s played so far with a dismal average of 19.33.

Jadhav has been struggling to find form in the IPL, from being injured in the first match of the 2018 IPL, where he played in the finals against Mumbai Indians at the Wankhede stadium. His poor form continued in the 2019 IPL edition where he suffered an injury again. However, this year too hasn’t been kind to him.

In the previous game between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Sheikh Zayed in Abu Dhabi, KKR went to bat first and posted a decent total of 167 runs on the scoreboard. Chasing 168, Chennai Super Kings’ openers Shane Watson and Faf du Plessis gave them a good start. However, the middle order suffered with MS Dhoni getting out early after making just 11 runs in 12 balls and Sam Curran was dismissed at 17. The onus of the chase fell on Kedar Jadhav and Ravindra Jadeja. While Jadeja scored 21 in eight deliveries, Jadhav scored seven off 12 balls. With their innings ended on 157, KKR won the match by 10 runs.

CSK supporters blamed Jadhav’s slow batting for the loss and have heavily trolled him on social media.

One user expressed his displeasure by posting an image of Kedar Jadhav’s IPL auction image and captioned it as “I want to report a robber.”

“ Can even digest the fact that CSK lost the match,” wrote another user. He went to add excerpts from the match about Jadhav changing his bat, but didn’t try to run in the last over.

A lot of users voiced their concern to drop Jadhav from the team by tweeting funny memes.

Jadhav hasn’t bowled either and his innings with the bat in IPL 2020 has produced woeful scores of 22, 26, and three so far.
