Watch: In a sensational fielding display, Ravindra Jadeja unleashed a bullet throw with one stump to aim at, catching KL Rahul short of his crease in Match 8 of IPL 2021 between Chennai Super Kings and Punjab Kings.
Chris Gayle poked a ball from Rahul Chahar in front of backward point and the batsmen decided to steal a quick run. However, the fielder it went to was Jadeja, arguably the man with the best arm in world cricket right now. In a swift fluid motion, he picked the ball up with one hand and threw it towards the striker’s end.
As expected, the throw clattered into the stumps and Rahul was run out by a few inches. Ravindra Jadeja continues to enhance his reputation as an extraordinary fielder.
