on Monday.
As the wicket of

tumbled in the 17th over against KKR, Jadeja unexpectedly strode out to bat, catching both fans and teammates off guard.

The Chepauk faithful, yearning for a glimpse of their cricketing icon Dhoni, were left disappointed by the unanticipated deviation from expectations. However, Jadeja, renowned for his jovial demeanor, couldn’t resist a mischievous grin as he humorously retreated to the pavilion, leaving the CSK dugout erupting in laughter.
Following Jadeja’s lighthearted diversion, the iconic former CSK captain, Dhoni, finally made his entrance to the crease amidst thunderous cheers from the crowd. Dhoni’s return to bat at the revered venue after nearly a year added to the excitement and anticipation among spectators.
