Chennai Super Kings (CSK) all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is not just good with both bat and ball, but is also a live-wire in the field. Apart from taking two wickets against Rajasthan Royals (RR), Jadeja also took four catches in the deep as CSK won their second match in a row in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. Jadeja failed with the bat on Monday, but he made his presence felt with the ball and on the field, and after he took Jaydev Unadkat’s catch at sweeper cover, he brought out an animated celebration.
Jadeja held up four fingers to indicate the number of catches he took, before doing a little “call me” action and a little jig.

Apart from his fielding heroics, Jadeja turned the momentum in CSK’s favour, dismissing Royals’ top-scorer on the night, Jos Buttler, with a peach of a delivery.

While no batsman made a significant individual score for CSK, fast cameos from Faf du Plessis, Moeen Ali, Ambati Rayudu and Dwayne Bravo powered them to 188/9.
Rajasthan Royals then suffered an epic collapse in the middle overs, as Jadeja and Moeen Ali shared five wickets between them in the space of four overs and eventually finished at 143/9.
