Gayle poked it in front of the backward point and there was a hesitation before the pair decided to rush the single, Jadeja had one stump to aim and he did it with ease.

Jadeja is regarded as one of the best fielders in the world and he showed the world why is that so. He is always electric and sensational in the field. The allrounder has made a comeback to cricket in the IPL after missing international action due to a thumb injury he picked up in Australia tour.
Meanwhile, CSK opted to bowl after winning the toss. The Punjab Kings have got off to a disastrous start. Thanks to Deepak Chahar’s brilliance with the new ball, PBKS has been reduced to 28 for five in the eighth over.
Chennai Super Kings would like to win this game and get their campaign started. They lost their season opener against Delhi Capitals.
In the game against PBKS, Dhoni became the first player to play 200 IPL games for the same franchise. He has been leading the CSK side since the start of the league.
