Ravindra Jadeja IPL: List of records broken

Share

Ravindra Jadeja IPL: In the most entertaining clash of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 season, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) are currently taking on the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. It is a battle between the top two teams of the season and Chennai Super Kings’ batters absolutely set the stage on fire during the first innings. However, it was CSK’s Ravindra Jadeja who completely stole the show by smacking a total of 37 runs in the 20th over of the innings.

CSK’s all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja blasted a total of 5 sixes in the 20th over being bowled by RCB’s Harshal Patel. Jadeja smashed four remarkable consecutive sixes off the first four balls of the over but actually the third ball was a no-ball and this is how, the left-hander became the first player on the planet to smack 25 runs off 3 balls.  He hit a wonderful four on the fifth ball and ended the over with another brilliant six. Harshal whose figures read 3 for 14 before that last over ended up conceding the most expensive figures in the IPL history as he gave away a total of 37 runs.
