Defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) continued on their winning streak in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 season as they beat Rajasthan Royals (RR) by eight runs at the MA Chidambaram stadium in Chennai on Sunday.
There were a number of moments throughout the match which CSK fans would remember for days to come. Right from MS Dhoni’s sensational knock of 75 not-out to Dwayne Bravo’s superb bowling in the final over, the fixture had it all.
Though, the one highlight of the match which took the social media by storm was a turn of event surrounding the home team’s star players – Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja.
On the second ball of the first over of RR’s innings, captain Ajinkya Rahane hit a shot, which was airborne, towards Jadeja. The dynamic all-rounder, who is one of the best fielders in the world, timed his dive correctly to catch the ball inches off the ground.
Following his brilliance in the field, which helped CSK get their first wicket, Raina, standing close to Jadeja, went up to his teammate and kissed him on the cheek.
Here’s the video:
