Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja anchored his side to a convincing win by 6 wickets against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Sunday in Pune. Jadeja scalped three RCB wickets to restrict them to 127/9 in 20 overs. Later, Chennai batsmen chased down the target with two overs to spare.
Jadeja’s wickets involved the dismissal of RCB captain Virat Kohli who was cleaned up by the left-arm bowler for 8 on the very first delivery that he bowled. But surprisingly Jadeja didn’t celebrate Kohli’s wicket.
“It’s good to get MoM awards in a T20 game. Very happy with the way I bowled today. The wicket was a bit dry, the ball was holding a bit, I was looking to bowl in the right areas and not give them width. Bhajji also bowled very well, together, we tried not to give them too many runs. Overall, I am very happy, I finally took a few wickets, looking to do better and better in the coming games,” Jadeja said about his bowling after the match.
