Ravindra Jadeja gave the cricket community a lot to talk about after picking Virat Kohli’s wicket today.
Jadeja has been subject to a lot of criticism this IPL for not having performed well in either of the domains.
However, Dhoni decided to throw the ball to Jaddu early on in the game today and whilst most it could have backfired for CSK big time, Jadeja managed to get through Kohli’s defences and give CSK a huge boost early on in the innings.
Virat Kohli was left befuddled at the dismissal as he couldn’t believe how he missed a straight one from Jadeja.
But Kohli wasn’t the most befuddled on the field, as Jadeja just couldn’t muster how Kohli could have missed such an ordinary ball.
Maybe it was because Jadeja didn’t want to upset his national captain during a stage of his career when he is trying to make his way back into the Indian side.

After Kohli’s wicket, RCB batsmen couldn’t muster any partnership together and thus could get only 127 runs on the board.
After Kohli’s dismissal the onus was on ABD to take RCB to a substantial total on a wicket that didn’t quite offer a lot to the bowlers.
But ABD found himself wanting against the trickery of Bhajji and the fast hands of Dhoni as he walked back to the pavilion in the next over.
Can RCB pull off a uncanny win here?
