Meanwhile, an all-round Ravindra Jadeja show helped Chennai Super Kings humble table-toppers Royal Challengers Bangalore in Mumbai as they handed RCB their first defeat of the season. Chennai Super Kings won the match by 69 runs.
Chasing 192, Virat Kohli’s RCB could only make 122/9 as CSK bowlers led by Ravindra Jadeja ran through RCB’s batting line-up. Jadeja was the pick of the bowlers as he picked up three wickets in his allotted four overs, giving away just 13 runs. He was also involved in a run-out that sent Dan Christian back to the pavilion.
Earlier, Jadeja smashed 37 runs off the last over of the Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) innings to take them to 191/4 against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Sunday at the Wankhede Stadium.
