IPL 2019: One sure cannot take ‘Sir’ Jadeja out of action, be it on or off-the-field! Jadeja was in the dugout when Raina hit Narine for a six straight down the ground. The ball was going straight to the yellow dugout when Jadeja got up from his seat and took the catch. It also meant no one got hurt. It happened in the third over and Jadeja took it safe as a house. Raina did not last for a long time as he was dismissed for 14 off 13 balls.
Here is the video of the episode.
Meanwhile, Deepak Chahar took three wickets as Chennai Super Kings (CSK) restricted Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to 108/9 in 20 overs in an Indian Premier League encounter here on Tuesday.
Chahar (3/20 in four overs) shaved off the KKR top order early and was well supported by veteran Harbhajan Singh (2/15 in four overs) who was very economical and Imran Tahir (2/21 in four overs) as Chennai never allowed the visitors to get an upper hand after they were asked to bat first by M.S. Dhoni.
The defending champions, led admirably by Dhoni, even kept Andre Russell quiet as the big-hitting West Indian scored 50 off 44 ball not out, his innings laced with five fours and three sixes.
KKR never really got going and it looked like they would not cross the 100-run mark before Russell — struggling with niggles — hit Scott Kuggeleijn for one six and two fours as the purple brigade managed to get 15 runs off the last over.
Russell was dropped when he was batting on 8 by Harbhajan which was a difficult chance.
KKR were reduced to 24/4 inside the first five overs, largely due to Chahar who bowled a superb first spell of 3-0-14-3.
Brief scores: Kolkata Knight Riders 108/9 (Andre Russell 50; Deepak Chahar 3/20, Harbhajan Singh 2/15, Imran Tahir 2/21)
