Jadeja plays a pivotal, CSK thrash Deccan







Pin It



Ravindra Jadeja produced an all-round performance to help defending champions Chennai Super Kings beat Deccan Chargers by 74 runs and register their first win in IPL 5, in Visakhapatnam. They lost their first match against Mumbai Indians in the opener.

Jadeja first hit a quickfire 29-ball 48 and then doubled it up with figures of 5-16 to put Chennai back to winning ways after they lost the tournament opener against Mumbai Indians by eight wickets. He earned the well deserved Man of the Match award.

After Jadeja’s show with the bat, West Indian Dwayne Bravo played a special unbeaten knock of 18-ball 43 runs towards the end to propel Chennai to an imposing 193 for six at Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium. Apart from Jadeja, Shadab Jakati (2-14) and Doug Bollinger (2-20) also chipped in with two wickets apiece.

Chennai bowlers complemented their batsmen’s superb show by bowling out Deccan for 119 in 17.1 overs. Frankly, Deccan couldn’t regain after being put on knees by Jadeja and Bravo.

Awesome come back by Chennai. They are looking promising now.
