Chennai Super Kings‘ all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja accounts to be one of the best fielders in world cricket. His throw to run out of KL Rahul was enough to prove this CSK player’s ability.

Jadeja played a key role in CSK’s first win of this season. He was economical with a bowling figure as well, just 19 runs om his 4 overs but no wicket. He didn’t get the chance to impress with the bat but showed his worth while fielding. CSK won this fixture by 6 wickets, thanks to Deepak Chahar who took 4 wickets, and Moeen Ali for his explosive 46 runs off 31 balls inning.

Known for pulling off some spectacular run-outs, Jadeja sent Rahul back to the dugout in the match against Punjab Kings on Friday.

In the third over bowled by Deepak Chahar, Punjab’s Chris Gayle nudged the ball in front of the backward point.

He hesitated while taking a single. Rahul, batting on the other end, rushed to complete the single but Jadeja was quick enough to crack the stumps with a direct hit. 

This was the 22nd time that Jadeja has effected a run-out, the most by any player in the Indian Premier League history.

Jadeja didn’t stop there. In the fifth over, he grabbed a stunner to dismiss Gayle. In an attempt to slice a slower delivery towards the backward point. Gayle hit it to Jadeja and the all-rounder made no mistake to complete the diving catch.
