Jadeja celebrated her team’s victory by naming her name on the back of her CSK jersey.
With 10 points needed on the last one, KKR’s Kamlesh Nagarkoti reduced the equation to seven points on two balls.
However, the fast bowler missed his lengths on the last two deliveries and Jadeja dropped them in the legs side stands to send the CSK canoe in a frenzied celebration.
Jadeja finished undefeated on 31 points with just 11 balls which also included a Lockie Ferguson six and four in the 19th which brought the equation from 30 on 12 balls to 10 on six balls.
“I hit the ball well into the net and kept thinking about it and managed to do it during the game,” Jadeja said after the game.
“We (him and Sam Curran) were talking about going after the bowlers, and in the last 12 balls you don’t think much.
“You just have to see the ball and hit the ball. I was looking not to lose my form, and I knew that if they played in my bow I could hit a six,” he added.
Curran finished undefeated on 13 of 14 and added 38 points with Jadeja for the fifth wicket.
