Jadeja smashed 36 from the final over to take CSK to a respectable total of 191/4 after they opted to bat first. He soon followed his stellar performance with a brilliant bowling figure of 3/13 in 4 overs, taking big wickets of Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers. He also sent Washington Sundar back to the dug-out.
As if that was not enough, Jadeja also affected the run-out of Dan Christian with a brilliant direct hit.

Kohli said, “I have believed in @imjadeja a lot. I am happy to see him perform with the bat, ball and in the field. When he plays well, it opens up so many options not just for #CSK but for #TeamIndia also”
