Watch: Ravindra Jadeja smashes 36 runs in 37-run final over | Cricket News – Eagles Vine

NEW DELHI All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja smashed 36 runs in a 37-run final over, which included five huge sixes, as he guided Chennai Super Kings (CSK) to 191 for four against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) match in Mumbai on Sunday.
Jadeja (3/13) later grabbed three big wickets in an outstanding all-round display as CSK crushed RCB by 69 runs.
The left-handed batsman, who got a life on nought by Dan Christian off Washington Sundar in the 15th over, made full use of the reprieve to finish on 62 off 28 balls.

From 3/14 in three overs, Harshal finished with figures of 3/51. Jadeja ruined what was turning out to be a great outing for purple cap holder Harshal, with his brutal last over onslaught.

CSK were at 154/4 when Harshal was handed the ball, Jadeja hit the first four balls for huge sixes, which included a no-ball, and followed them with another maximum and a boundary in the seven-ball final over.

Earlier, a second straight half-century for Faf du Plessis (50 off 41 balls) propelled CSK before Harshal delivered a double blow for RCB in the 14th over, getting rid of Suresh Raina (24) and the former South African captain off successive deliveries.

Raina belted three sixes during his 18-ball knock which gave CSK the move-on after the openers had set up a good platform with a 74-run partnership.

The CSK openers raced to 51 in six overs with du Plessis and Gaikwad matching each other shot for shot. The RCB pacers — Kyle Jamieson and Mohammad Siraj — could not make much of an impression.
