Cricket, controversy, and drama – the IPL match between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium had everything to be termed as ‘epic’. Chasing a target of 152 runs, MS Dhoni and his men required 18 off the last over with Englishman Ben Stokes taking up the ball.
And you bet, the over turned out to be a nail-biting few minutes of action. Chennai eventually managed to cross the line, courtesy Mitchell Santner who smashed Stokes for a full monty in the closing ball.
However, you cannot ignore the six hammered by Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja on the very first ball of the over. While Stokes bowled the delivery way out of the off stump, Jadeja stretched his arms to somehow swing his bat across. Fortunately enough for the men in yellow, he got a fair amount of bat under it and managed to send it over the rope. But the funny part is, both Jadeja and Stokes had themselves lying on the ground in the process!
