Ravindra Jadeja achieved a special feat in CSK's home game against KKR at IPL 2024. Jadeja has joined Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli in the special club.

Ravindra Jadeja engineered Chennai Super Kings' (CSK) comfortable win over two-time winners Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) as the defending champions ended their two-game losing streak at the Chepauk on Monday. The seasoned all-rounder turned the rematch of the 2012 final into a low-scoring encounter at the famous MA Chidambaram Stadium. Emerging as the pick of the bowlers for the hosts, all-rounder Jadeja helped CSK restrict KKR to a below-par 137 for 9 in the 20-over contest.

KKR suffered an early setback as Jadeja plucked a sharp catch to complete the dismissal of opener Phil Salt on the first ball of the low-scoring clash at Chepauk. Joining wicket-taker Tushar Deshpande in the CSK bowling attack, Jadeja scalped the crucial wickets of Sunil Narine (27) and Angkrish Raghuvanshi (24) after the powerplay.

'I don't count my catches': Jadeja drops king-sized remark

Interestingly, Jadeja also took two catches to enter his name into the record books. "I don't count my catches," Jadeja told a popular cricketer commentator after the CSK star was reminded about his IPL record in the mid-innings break. For the record, Jadeja has joined his India teammates Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in an elite club. Jadeja has become the fourth Indian to complete 100 catches in the IPL. Jadeja is only behind Kohli (110), Suresh Raina (109), Kieron Pollard (103) and Rohit (100) in the special club. Veteran Indian opener Shikhar Dhawan (98) is next in line to complete a century of catches in the IPL.
