WATCH: Ravindra Jadeja takes a sharp catch to dismiss AB de Villiers in IPL 2019 opener

Posted On / /

The defending IPL champions, Chennai Super Kings, have started their title defence in style.

The yellow army bowled out Virat Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore at a mere score of 70 in just 17.1 overs on Saturday in Chepauk.

Super Kings skipper MS Dhoni invited the visitors to bat first on a sluggish track and veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh proved his decision spot on. He ran through the top-order to put the hosts well on top.

Bhajji picks up the crucial wickets of Kohli, Moeen Ali and AB de Villiers. Full credit should be given to Ravindra Jadeja, who took a brilliant catch to send Mr. 360 back into the hut.

It was the eight over of the match when De Villiers tried to score some quick runs for his side. The hard-hitter fell into the trap of the off-spinner, smashing the ball in the area where Jadeja was fielding.

Jaddu too made no mistake and grabbed a sharp catch in the deep.
