Jadeja Joines The Elite IPL Century Of Catches Club

Chennai Super Kings’ star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja had a night to remember on Monday during their IPL match against the Kolkata Knight Riders at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium. Not only did he shine with his bowling, but he also achieved a remarkable feat in the field, joining the exclusive club of players with 100 catches in IPL history.

 

This milestone came in Jadeja’s 231st IPL match, a testament to his consistent fielding excellence over the years. He now finds himself alongside cricketing legends like Virat Kohli, Suresh Raina, Kieron Pollard, and Rohit Sharma, all of whom have snagged over 100 catches in the IPL.

 

The moment of his 100th catch arrived in the last over of the KKR innings. With nerves running high, Jadeja, displayed exceptional skill by grabbing a difficult chance off Shreyas Iyer’s bat, who was facing the bowling of Mustafizur Rahman. This catch wasn’t just his 100th, but also the perfect follow-up to his earlier fielding brilliance where he dismissed Phil Salt off Tushar Deshpande’s delivery, marking his 99th catch.

 

But Jadeja’s night wasn’t just about fielding magic. He also showcased his bowling prowess, weaving a web of spin that troubled the KKR batsmen. His figures of 3/18 were instrumental in restricting KKR to a manageable score of 137/9, a total that looked challenging on that particular pitch. Jadeja’s scalps included crucial wickets like Sunil Narine, Angkrish Raghuvanshi, and Venkatesh Iyer, effectively dismantling the opposition’s batting order.

 

With Jadeja’s all-around performance firing on all cylinders, the Chennai Super Kings will be hoping to turn the tables after facing two consecutive defeats and emerge victorious in their chase against KKR.
