WATCH: Dhoni Hits Jadeja On The Head With His Bat After “Insane” Six
The IPL match between Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings had everything to keep the fans at the edge of their seats. From insane sixes to no-ball controversy, the match truly didn’t disappoint. The match at Jaipur venue will always be remembered for MS Dhoni losing his temper and stepping into the field in a bid to protest against umpiring decision.
MS Dhoni starred with the bat as Chennai Super Kings beat Rajasthan Royals by four wickets to open up a four-point gap at the top of the IPL Points Table. The drama-filled IPL 2019 encounter at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur will forever be remembered for MS Dhoni losing his cool and entering the field to protest against an umpiring howler.
Another incident that took the fans by a surprise was the unbelievable six hit by Ravindra Jadeja! When team needed 18 off the last 6 balls, Jadeja belted one off Ben Stokes’ bowling. The shot was so good and funny at the same time as Jadeja fell on the ground after striking it quite cleanly.
Even Ben Stokes who lost his balance fell on the ground to watch the ball going into the stands. As Jadeja lay on the ground after he hit a sensational shot, MS Dhoni at the other end came up to him and did something unusual.
