Watch: Jadeja mimicks Morgan in CSK dressing room
Chennai Super Kings’ all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been a livewire on the field. He offers three-dimensional gameplay during the passage of the play. He can bat, bowl and field well and this is why he is one of the crucial players in the world.
Jadeja recently took the internet platforms by storm after he took 4 superb catches against Rajasthan Royals. Having played 4 games so far this season, he scored 40 runs and took 2 wickets.
Overall, he took 7 catches this season, which literally goes to show how good he has been on the field. Meanwhile, the all-rounder made the headlines for mimicking KKR captain Eoin Morgan.
Jadeja who is famous for his jovial attitude imitated England international Eoin Morgan’s batting stance. In a clip uploaded by Suresh Raina for his Instagram story, the all-rounder Jadeja can be seen tapping the bat hard between his feet quite similar to that of Eoin Morgan.

Talking about the game, CSK posted 220/3 in 20 overs. Faf du Plessis top-scored with 95* off 60 balls. In reply, KKR almost pulled it off in the end but fell short of 18 runs. Pat Cummins scored 64 as he was the top run-getter for KKR.
Morgan’s words at the post-match presentation
“What a hell of a game of cricket. Certainly from the position we were in after our powerplay, we probably didn’t think we’d get as close as we did. But Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik really did put a partnership together, once you do that taking advantage of the conditions here, it’s very difficult to stop.
A partnership going in that manner and then following that Pat Cummins the way he played really gave us every chance towards the end. Tremendous fight from our middle and lower order which is all you can ask for when you lose wickets upfront like that. The first five overs of our batting didn’t go our way.
We didn’t play as well as would have liked. If we had built a partnership and taken advantage of those early overs going into those middle overs, we would have been in a really strong position. We can be happy with the way (we adapted to) new ground, different challenges.
Going back to it now having watched our guys bat, I don’t think there was a great deal of margin of error. So we have to be a little bit kinder to our bowlers when we walk off. Having been hit for 220 and then nearly getting close, being five down very early, you have to be honest with the bowlers about execution.
It does make a huge amount of difference but you really have to be on the money here. I tend to stay away from Andre after he’s got out. When he’s in the form like this, he’s as good a player as any in the tournament, particularly when he strikes the ball like that. It’s great that he’s been in this sort of form. it’s disappointing that the rest of us couldn’t help him out. He’ll obviously be disappointed,” KKR captain added.
