“If I come to bat early, they all chant ‘Mahi Mahi’ and pray to see MS Dhoni,“ Ravindra Jadeja after winning the man of the match award against DC
Ravindra Jadeja was the chief architect behind Chennai Super Kings winning the game against Delhi Capitals (DC). He played a great role with both bat and ball and helped his side win the 7th game of the season.
With the bat, he scored, 21 runs in 16 balls with the help of 1 four and 1 six and helped his side post a total of 167 runs on the board whereas with the ball he picked one wicket conceding just 19 runs. He was awarded his third man of the match award.
However, at the post-match presentation, he was at his hilarious best and said that fans don’t like him when he comes out to bat as they want to see MS Dhoni bat. He said that imagine what will happen if he bats up the order.
“I keep hearing Mahi bhai’s chants. If I bat higher, then the crowd will wait for me to get out. As long as the team wins, I am happy.” He said.
