PBKS vs CSK: Ravindra Jadeja scores a brilliant direct hit and diving catch against the Kings of Punjab. Watch | Cricket News


Ravindra Jadeja, considered by many to be India’s best defender, produced two magical moments on the pitch to get rid of dangerous KL Rahul and Chris Gayle in Game 8 of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021 at Wankhede Stadium on Friday . The all-rounder first fired the Punjab Kings skipper with a brilliant direct hit, then made a sensational dive to get rid of Chris Gayle. As KL Rahul left for five points, Gayle could only manage 10 points before Jadeja’s outburst sent him racing Deepak Chahar’s bowling alley.
