Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja seems to injured himself while fielding against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Wednesday.
So far, Ravindra Jadeja hasn’t had a great season with the bat or the ball. Moreover, he has dropped dollies in the field, unlike his usual reputation. Jaddu is considered one of the safest fielders on the globe. However, he hasn’t been at his usual best for the Yellow Army in the ongoing edition.
In the ongoing match between CSK and RCB, Ravindra Jadeja almost grabbed a stunner but injured himself while going for the catch and seemed badly in pain.
Ravindra Jadeja injured himself while going for the catch
In the 18th over of the Royal Challengers’ innings, Mahipal Lomror mistimed a shot while trying to clear the boundary of Dwaine Pretorius. The ball went up high in the air towards the deep extra cover, and Ravindra Jadeja came running in from the boundary.
He got to the ball but failed to stop himself, momentum taking him forward, and the ball burst out of his hands. To make the matter worse, Jadeja’s left leg got stuck in the turf, and he fell awkwardly on the ground.
Ravindra Jadeja looked in huge pain as he remained on the ground for quite some time. Finally, the physio came out and assisted the star all-rounder.

Earlier, Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to bowl first. Royal Challengers made a decent start as Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis added 62 runs for the first wicket. But, they soon lost all the momentum after losing three quick wickets.
Mahipal Lomror, Rajat Patidar, and Dinesh Karthik made handy contributions to take RCB to a fighting total of 173/8 in 20 overs.
Chasing the total, Devon Conway scored a half-century for the four-time champions. However, CSK kept losing wickets at regular intervals to keep the opposition in the game. At the time of writing, the match is hanging in the balance as the Super Kings need 52 runs in the last four overs with five wickets in hand.
