IPL 2018: Ravindra Jadeja reveals what he was thinking on the last two balls
Ravindra Jadeja IPL: Sir Ravindra Jadeja (IPL Final) gave Chennai Super Kings the IPL title for the fifth time by hitting a six and a four off the last 2 balls. In the last over, CSK needed 13 runs. Only 4 runs came from the first 3 balls. In such a situation, it was necessary to hit Jadeja on the last two balls. In such a situation, Jadeja stood on the expectations of captain Dhoni and gave the team victory by scoring 2 runs in 10 balls. It was a moment when the match seemed to be heading towards Gujarat. But this time Mohit Sharma could not do charisma in front of Jaddu. Jadeja scored 10-runs off the last two balls to give CSK the victory.
After the match, Jadeja talked about those breath-taking moments and told what was going on in his mind at that time. "It feels great to win my fifth title in front of my audience... They have come in large numbers to support CSK. It's amazing.. They waited till late in the night for the rain to stop... Want to congratulate CSK fans... I want to dedicate this win to one of the special members of my team, MS Dhoni... '
