Ravindra Jadeja hammered a record-scoring total of 37 runs with five classic sixes in the death over and followed it up with sensational bowling figures helped Chennai Super Kings secure a massive 69-run win against Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2021.
The left-handed batsman premier all-rounder Sir Jadeja, who was Catch dropped on 0(2) by Dan Christian off Washington Sundar in the 15th over, made full of advantage of the reprieve to finish on 62 off 28 balls.
Before the final over, it had been coming up to be wonderful for purple cap holder Harshal Patel. From 3/14 in 3 overs, Harshal ended up with figures of 3/51 as he was beaten for 5 sixes and a boundary in his last over of the inning.

Royal Challengers Innings 122/9 (20)
In response to Chennai Super King’s 191/4, RCB were off to a rapid start as they raced off to 50 in just 4.2 overs but Sam Curran strikes and he dismissed the RCB skipper as Virat Kohli’s much-needed wicket for CSK and that brings Washington Sundar into the middle.
Shardul Thakur strikes to get rid of Devdutt Padikkal and that is a severe blow for Royal Challengers Bangalore. Padikkal was batting with complete responsibility until this happened. Short of a length delivery and Padikkal goes for the pull however finds Suresh Raina at sq. leg. Raina points to Dhoni in delight and CSK, despite unseaworthy runs has nailed the RCB openers.
After the openers’ departure, RCB middle-order was under pressure however it failed to place up a fight against Jadeja’s spin – who might do nothing wrong within the field. The left-arm spinner Jaddu 1st removed Washington Sundar for seven in his terribly 1st over and later dangerous Glenn Maxwell (22) and AB de Villiers (4) and even affected the run out of Daniel Christian for one alongside his direct hit.
Jadeja finished with unbelievable figures of 4-1-13-3 and ensured the match was at intervals his team’s grip.
