Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni’s wife Sakshi Singh Dhoni posted a photo of Ravindra Jadeja in her Instagram stories, expressing her amazement at the all-rounder’s hitting ball on Thursday when he hit six of the last two balls of the game over CSK to help defeat Kolkata Knight Riders. “Baap re baap (Oh My God!)” Sakshi wrote in the photo as caption. Jadeja celebrated his team’s victory by pointing to his name on the back of his CSK jersey.
With 10 runs needed from the last over, KKR’s Kamlesh Nagarkoti brought the equation back to seven runs on two balls.
However, the fast bowler missed out on the last two deliveries and Jadeja put them on the leg side in the stands to give the CSK dugout an outrageous party.
Jadeja finished unbeaten on 31 runs from just 11 balls, including a six and a four off Lockie Ferguson in the 19th over that brought the equation from 30 from 12 to 10 from six balls.
“I hit the ball well in the net and kept thinking about it and I succeeded in the game”, said Jadeja after the game.
“We (he and Sam Curran) were talking about going after the bowlers, and in the last 12 balls you don’t think much.
“Just see the ball and hit the ball. I didn’t want to lose my form, and I knew if they threw in my bow I could hit a six,” he added.
Curran finished unbeaten at 13/14 and added 38 runs with Jadeja for the fifth wicket.
