Ravindra Jadeja's All-round show propels CSK to win against PBKS

Ravindra Jadeja orchestrated a masterclass all-round show as Chennai Super Kings regained their winning touch with a comprehensive 28-run win against Punjab Kings in a low-scoring IPL fixture here on Sunday.

Despite the challenging conditions, Jadeja’s invaluable 26-ball 43 helped CSK reach a competitive total of 167 for 9 after being asked to bat first by Sam Curran.

The 35-year-old left arm spinner then proved to be the game-changer with the ball, claiming three important wickets for just 20 runs in the middle overs.
In the end, Punjab Kings fell short of the target, managing only 139 for 9 in their 20 overs.

Ravindra Jadeja’s all-round brilliance was the important factor in CSK’s comprehensive win, which saw them bounce back from their recent losses and regain their winning form in the tournament. Comback pacer Tushat Deshpande (2/35) and impact snub Simarjeet Singh (2/16) also featured among wickets.

Eyeing to secure a 6th successive win over CSK in the IPL< PBKS found themselves at 78 for 7 against Jadeja’s match-turning spell.

Having lost 3 of their last 4 matches, the five-time champions CSK thus returned to winning ways and jumped to third place in the standings.

Now, CSK have 12 points with three matches left to secure their playoff spot. PBKS have 8 points from 11 matches. R Jadeja opened his account soon dismissing Prabhsimran. Prabhsimran was looking at ease but the opener was enticed by Jadeja’s full ball at the stump.

Jadeja gave away just 3 runs in his first over, completed a decisive spell ousting Curran (7) and the in-form Ashutosh Sharma (3) in the 13th over. As runs dried up, Curran started to feel the heat and took Jadeja’s widish delivery but he slapped it straight to Santner at long-off.

Ashutosh then perished after mistiming his big hoick to be caught by Simarjeet at third man to give Jadeja a three-for.

Punjab kept chipping away at wickets but it was Jadeja who remained firm, quietly going about his ways picking the odd boundaries and sixes to take them to a par-score.

After a silent penultimate over that yielded just two runs for 2 wickets, Jadeja held his nerves and took on Arshdeep in the final over hitting him for a boundary and a six.
