Ravindra Jadeja Sixes: Ravindra Jadeja once again highlighted the fact that in a game between two high-profile teams, the margin of error is slim. Too subtle to mention during the pre-match drab routine. No player can afford to drop his level, or he can forget he is even a utility for his team. That’s what happened in the 20th over of the match between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore. So special was that over, of course for Ravindra Jadeja and CSK fans, that it’s already carved out in IPL history books.
If that was ever the case, Ravindra Jadeja is not a bits and pieces player, as one commentator in the shape of Sanjay Manjrekar infamously proclaimed. But Manjrekar was wrong. Entirrely. Because Jadeja is elite in everything he does, whether it’s fielding, bowling or batting. He is just phenomenal. Harshal Patel found that out in the worst possible way.
The 30-year-old Patel has been one of the best options at Virat Kohli’s disposal in IPL 2021 but Jadeja took his swords to Patel and hit him for 337 runs in the 20th over, hitting five sixes, including one on the no-ball.
At 151-4 after 19 overs, Virat Kohli knew his bowlers did most of the right things by holding CSK batsmen back, but the fact that Jadeja took 37 runs off the last over, no doubt the scoreboard now reads a completely different story.
RCB were 65/2 after six overs at the time of writing this article with captain Virat Kohli and his partner Devdutt Padikkal both back in the pavilion. There’s no denying that this is the toughest situation RCB finds itself in in the IPL 2021. Virat Kohli may be gawking at his first defeat as RCB captain in the Indian Premier League 2021.
