The Best Kedar Jadhav Memes After His 7* Off 12
by Wisden Staff 2 minute read

It was the kind of performance that, for Chennai Super Kings fans, the only way to avoid crying about it was to laugh instead.

After 10 overs of their chase against Kolkata Knight Riders, CSK were in the box seat, placed at 90-1 and needing 78 in the second half of the innings. Five boundaryless overs later, and they were up against it.

A cameo from Sam Curran meant they remained in with a chance, and when MS Dhoni fell, Kedar Jadhav, who averages 42 at above a run a ball for India in ODIs, walked in with CSK needing 39 to win from 21 balls. Aggression was the order of the day.

Soon enough, he realised a change was needed. Unfortunately, it didn’t have the desired effect.

CSK eventually lost by 10 runs, despite Ravindra Jadeja hitting 21 off eight balls, including 14 off the last three of the game. The jokes were plentiful.

Some remembered the ‘good’ times, such as when Jadhav top scored for Royal Challengers Bangalore … but only scored 9.

There was one man who might have been smiling. Dhoni had managed just 10 off 11 balls, but Jadhav’s performance took the heat off him. It’s important to always keep the captain happy!
