During the 23rd match of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Chepauk, CSK all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja displayed one of the best fielding efforts of the season when he saved a certain six hit by KKR power-hitter Andre Russell.
In the 14th over of the first innings, Russell smacked a Scott Kuggeleijn delivery towards mid-wicket and it seemed like it will easily cross the boundary rope. But Jadeja had other ideas as he timed his jump to perfection and stopped the ball from crossing the fence.
Jadeja’s acrobatic skills became a source of amazement for all those who witnessed it.

Meanwhile, CSK bowlers delivered yet again to restrict KKR to 108/9 in their stipulated 20 overs. The visitors never recovered from the early blows and found the going tough to finish with a below-par score despite an unbeaten 50 off 44 balls from Muscle-Russell.
