Thursday night's clash between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals went right down to the wire when Mitchell Santner sent Ben Stokes out of the park and guided CSK to a nail-biting 4-wicket victory on the final delivery of the match.
The exciting contest was engulfed in controversy when Dhoni lost his cool and marched onto the field to confront umpires over a no-ball decision during the fourth delivery by Stokes.
But the eventful over also saw a ridiculous six by Ravindra Jadeja following which Jadeja and Stokes found themselves lying flat on the deck.
Needing 18 runs from the last over, CSK found a perfect start when Ravindra Jadeja connected one and sent Stokes down the ground. The delivery bowled by the English bowler was far and wide and Jadeja had to stretch to his left to reach for the ball. Despite falling over, Jadeja still managed to go for the maximum. Stokes too fumbled on his tracks and landed on the pitch.
The sight of both Jadeja and Stokes down on the turf, watching the ball sail over the sight-screen, brought cheer in the commentary box. Dhoni then walked to Jadeja and gave him a pat on the back with his bat.
The extraordinary scenes were later turned into a meme by Twitter.
You don't see such images in cricket very often. Even Dhoni reacted to this ludicrous Jadeja shot off Ben Stokes. Crazy finish to end off the match#RRvCSK #IPL2019 pic.twitter.com/14WGjWL5xy— Online Citizen ☄️ (@unilator) April 12, 2019
