Deccan Chargers v Chennai Super Kings, IPL 2012, Visakhapatnam April 7, 2012

Jadeja routs Deccan Chargers

  shares 52

Chennai Super Kings 193 for 6 (Jadeja 48, Bravo 43*) beat Deccan Chargers 119 (Jadeja 5-16) by 74 runs
Scorecard and ball-by-ball details

He was persisted with for all of India's eight games in the CB series in Australia, for an average of 16.83 with the bat and 109.00 with the ball. He had an indifferent Asia Cup. Back in the IPL, this time with Chennai Super Kings, this year's most expensive signing, Ravindra Jadeja, excelled right away in the tournament that had catapulted him into the limelight in 2008. A five-wicket haul followed an innings of 48 off 29 deliveries as Super Kings recovered in style from a patchy display in their opening game against Mumbai Indians.

While Jadeja's name was all over the scorecard, it was Dwayne Bravo's late blast with the bat that took the game away from Chargers. Bravo blasted five sixes in the last two overs to propel Super Kings to a tall score, which was aided by loose bowling from the Indian component of the Chargers attack. Faf du Plessis provided the boost at the start, Jadeja built on it in the middle and Bravo took Chargers apart at the death.

Forty runs came in overs 19 and 20 bowled by TP Sudhindra and Manpreet Gony. A leading edge off Sudhindra carried all the way over the straight boundary for the first six. Bravo wound up and deposited the next delivery, a length ball, over long-on. Gony was wayward in the final over, and Bravo clattered three sixes off an assortment of full tosses and short deliveries.

Bravo ended on 43 off 18, with Super Kings taking 72 in the last five overs. Du Plessis had set the tone earlier, hitting Gony for three consecutive boundaries in the fifth over. Gony became too predictable with his shortish length, and du Plessis stayed back to steer for four to third man and pull for six over deep midwicket. Gony became predictable again when he went full with the last ball of the over, and du Plessis lofted him over long-off.

Sudhindra had du Plessis holing out to long-on with his first ball, but was to go for 46 in four overs. Suresh Raina and S Badrinath looked in fine touch till Daniel Christian got them. Christian and Dale Steyn were difficult to get away, but Chargers had plenty of weak links in the attack.

Jadeja went after fellow left-arm spinner Ankit Sharma, slog-sweeping and lofting him for three boundaries. Christian was taken for consecutive fours. Jadeja even tried to distract Steyn by moving around in his crease but was dismissed hit-wicket when he trod onto his stumps as he tried to nudge a short of a length Steyn delivery. Things weren't looking as bad for Chargers at that point with the score on 147 in the 18th over, but Bravo's innings turned a stiff chase into an improbable one.

It did not help Chargers that the longest any of their batsmen managed to last was 18 deliveries and the most any of them made was 23. Super Kings' spin battery smothered Chargers completely. R Ashwin gave 12 runs in his three overs at the start, Shadab Jakati got the important wickets of Cameron White and Christian, and Jadeja did the rest. He is an unspectacular bowler, but is generally accurate.

By the time he was brought on in the 11th over, the asking-rate had already crossed 12. Chargers had no option but to go after the bowling. But this was Jadeja's night, and there was to be no hitting him.

    @rahulcricket

    mr rahul, many players play well in ipl only, what about yusuf pathan, rohit sharma, even raina sometimes, why to corner and blame a young kid like jadeja, didnt you seen jaddu playing the first odi in england (72), where nobody played well except dhoni, what about his bowling performances against england in the odi series in india

    please let the guy free, he has the capability and talent, in the ranji, he scored 300 and above last season,

    but one thing I ll agree with jaddu haters, he is not suited to play at 8

    he should play at 5 or 6 in odi, probably 25 to 40 over slot

    guys please leave him alone,let him give some time

    he has the all round abilities, dhoni is trying to mould him as yuvi, and if he wins, it will be a nice catch for our indian team

  • POSTED BY on | April 8, 2012, 10:58 GMT

    @anshu.s, well said mate, these are the guys jealousy of ipl and indian cricket

    nobody works for free

    but everytime this talk is there

    sure jadeja will rock, grow up guyz

    there are people who play cricket outer the city of delhi and bombay

    see dhoni, raina, both comes from a small town and how they play now the people started telling, jadeja hits six only in small ground not in australia

    can you guys tell me which indian player hit sixes in cb series

    only dhoni and raina sometimes

    even raina was struggling to clear the boundary

    so please think before you comment

    jadejas 5 wkt haul came when DC had already lost the plot. It was Bravo's innings that sealed it for CSK. Jadeja was good today but nothing exceptional. Can jadeja chase down a target when asking rate is 12rpo for eight overs? He cant he is mediocre. We will know how jadeja bowl against top batsmen later on.

  • POSTED BY Windies2Dheart on | April 8, 2012, 9:58 GMT

    yet another "gold plated" indian allrounder. Jadeja is average at best (batting and bowling) he simply reaped the rewards of the good bowling of his teammates. Even a schoolboy can take a 5for if his opponents are trying to belt 12 runs/over.

  • POSTED BY on | April 8, 2012, 9:57 GMT

    The DC vs CSK match, I attended it. I was supporting DC. Supporting it like crazy, with a band round my head and a DC flag in my hand waving it and shouting whenever DC triumphed. Obviously I'm not tired of waving the flag and shouting. Most of the time I've been calm. I was searching for Amit Mishra and J. P. Duminy in the DC dugout. Well, I couldn't find them (my stand in the stadium wasn't near the DC dugout anyway), but for most of the match, I was calm. When the match was finished, I came out not so exhausted but heavily disappointed. Dear DC owners, please do realize that your team has very passionate fans like me. We may not be jumping out of our buildings when DC loses and lighting fireworks when DC wins. But we take every match result to heart and we base our quiet happiness on your performance. The fact that you are not caring enough to select a team that at least can give a tough fight to strong opponents is making me feel really very disappointed.

  • POSTED BY on | April 8, 2012, 9:56 GMT

    DC is most weakest team in the IPL,Jadeja got runs against club bowlers,the wickets he got most of that sort of batsman.Jadeja never performed in the International level for India.He is not genuine allrounder,India has many more players who are better than Jadeja.

  • POSTED BY vrn59 on | April 8, 2012, 9:22 GMT

    It is not right for CSK supporters to say their team is back to winning ways. The Deccan Chargers are one of the weaker teams in the IPL and it was easy to bat against the likes of MS Gony and T Sudhindra. Their spin department was weak without Amit Mishra. Although Ravindra Jadeja is fairly talented, he is certainly not worth $2.0m in a world where VVS Laxman does not even get a contract. He performed brilliantly yesterday and no one can dispute that, but he is not worth the hype. Personally, I condemn Dhoni's decision to back Jadeja for several matches in a row in Australia and Bangladesh though he was repeatedly failing with both bat and ball. He is a typical limited-overs subcontinent player; he will never perform overseas. But he could be useful for India at home and even at the T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka.

  • POSTED BY sjken on | April 8, 2012, 8:43 GMT

    Jadeja has put up a splendid performance. But his performance in Australia was mediocre to say the least. I believe that a more consistent performance in the IPL and also during overseas matches are necessary to justify his $2million price tag.

  • POSTED BY on | April 8, 2012, 8:31 GMT

    I don't understand why people are talking only about money!! CSK spent 2 million not to get Jadeja, its to get a good balanced team.. Simple!! Now CSK can bat till 9 and can rotate 7 bowlers.. Its just brilliant planning..

    @amansharief,people like you make me loose my cool...what the heck do you mean by playing only for money,when he pays for India then also he gets paid money,these are professional sportsperson who put in the hard work and get paid in bargain.Btw let me ask you do you work for free ?? somebody's patriotic credentials are not proven by playing for BCCI'S team India but by working for the nation,joining the army,helping the poor,paying your taxes,honesty,national building.I am not a big fan of Ravindra Jadeza but look at his background his father is a auto rickshaw driver who slogged day in day out so his son can play cricket,it's sad that people like you and me pontificate over internet sitting in our air-conditioned offices/homes regarding the merits/demerites of money.

  • POSTED BY sachin_vvsfan on | April 8, 2012, 6:55 GMT

    This is coming from DC fan.I specifically came here to comment on Jadeja. He might have scored those 40 odd runs and hit sixes (against unknown club bowlers)but he is still a bits and pieces cricketer to me and is only good for IPL (like other IPL stars ashok dinda, manoz tiwary). Still cannot forget the loss of that Hyd match when sachin and raina almost chased 350 target but this guy threw away (in power plays). Guys think beyond IPL. He is just not national material.

    @Sakthiivel No need to search. you will probably find me through out the IPL.

    Good to see Chennai back to the Winning ways! Faf du Plesis did a commendable job in the absence of Mike Hussey. Jadeja able to prove his detractors (including me) that he is worth his place in the team (But I am not sure whether he is worth the 2 million price tag). All Round performance by CSK. Harsha was commenting yesterday during the post match analysis: 74 Runs is a decent Margin in Test Match Cricket. In ODI Cricket, 74 is a very very good Margin to win a Match. But, 74 runs Victory Margin in T20 Cricket is Pure Annihilation of the Opposition. Sorry for Deccan. They need to revamp their playing XI.

  • POSTED BY on | April 8, 2012, 5:39 GMT

    Just by a single match we can not judge the performance of Jadeja. DC is so weak. Let us see his performance for upcoming matches and then we can judge.. Personally I hate his performance and I hate Dhoni's decision for supporting him when so many much talented players are kept outside Indian team. Even Agit agakar can hit better than this man.

  • POSTED BY shrastogi on | April 8, 2012, 5:37 GMT

    DC with current composition must be one of the weakest team in IPL5. Whatever is their thinking but on Indian pitches in summer heat one at least needs two quality spinning options. Four fast bowlers would rarely be effective. I think they used Steyn well but only one Steyn in the team wouldnt be sufficient. CSK on the other side did many things right from the first match fiasco. If you spend 2 millions for a player who cant hit from word go to bat on no 8 then there is something wrong. Dhoni also needs few balls ,though fewer than for many others, to get in and needs to bat up in the order as there would be better bowling opponents which wouldnt concede so many runs in last two overs as DC did ie explosive finish may not be of order for them in all the matches so they need to pace their innings better.

  • POSTED BY AjitDJ on | April 8, 2012, 4:47 GMT

    Looks like Deccan Chargers owners have no interest in winning the tournament. Total lack of planning, bad team selections, roping in players with no calibre whatsoever... all this makes us wonder why they are even playing in the IPL. It's best that they instead withdraw and save fans the agony.

    CSK were awesome in this game, and they still haven't fully woken up. They are not fools to pay so much for this kid Jadeja. Just watch him go from strength to strength. He is worth every paisa of those millions paid. And what about Bravo? This team has very good energy. Finally Dhoni is back with a team where he does not have to hide anybody. It must be immensely satisfying to him as a captain.

People who hate him not because of his IPL performance which he does for money but they bash him for being regular in National team and irregular in performing at that level. IPL is club level cricket with club level bowlers and batters. this performance of Jadeja proves a point that millions are saying that he is not perfect neither mature to represent tri colour and above all plays for heavy money only. I wonder if BCCI categorize him "A" list cricketers and increase his salary may be then he starts performing. and for you Jaddu Fan please understand cricket and its importance in our country, we value Country more than the Clubs and he is Bygod a major Flop at National Level
