WATCH: Ravindra Jadeja produces a superhuman effort to deny Andre Russell a certain six

Cricket can be cruel sometimes and Chennai Super Kings star Ravindra Jadeja would definitely agree to it. Jadeja nearly pulled off a catch in the ongoing game against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Chepauk that would have gone down as one of the greatest ever-catches in the history of the game. MS Dhoni’s decision to bowl first turned out to be spot on as Super Kings bowlers demolished high-flying Knight Riders’ top-order.

Deepak Chahar gave the Super Kings a flying start by dismissing Chris Lynn for a duck in the very first over. In the very following over, Harbhajan Singh accounted for Sunil Narine before Chahar struck again to dismiss Nitish Rana and leave the Knight Riders reeling at 9 for 3 after three overs. Robin Uthappa did not last long too as the Knight Riders found themselves 4 down for just 24.

By the time the eleventh over started, the Knight Riders were staring down the barrel with the scoreboard reading 47 for 6. Andre Russell and Piyush Chawla then stopped the rot for a while. The Super Kings, however, nearly sent back Russell too in the 14th over when Ravindra Jadeja pulled off a an unbelievable effort at deep mid-wicket.

On the fourth delivery of that over, Scott Kuggeleijn bowled a short delivery to Russell. The in-form Knight Riders star pulled the ball hard towards the deep mid-wicket. The ball was looking primed to cross the boundary before Ravindra Jadeja came running from nowhere and used his left hand to stunningly keep it on. The momentum was taking Jadeja over the ropes, so he couldn’t quite cling onto it but did enough to save five runs for his side.

Here is a clip of that stunning effort from Ravindra Jadeja:
