Twitter Reactions: Fans Blame Ravindra Jadeja’s Slow Innings for CSK’s loss

Ever since Chennai Super Kings announced Ravindra Jadeja as their new captain replacing Mahendra Singh Dhoni, the Indian all-rounder has had a hard time getting his old form back. The pressure of captaincy has apparently taken a big hit on Jaddu’s form and he has not been able to perform well in any of CSK’s matches so far this season. His poor form can be considered to be one of the prime examples of why CSK has performed so poorly so far in the tournament and Jadeja gave yet another disasterclass performance in the match between CSK and PBKS tonight which again CSK ended up losing.

Batting first, Punjab Kings were able to reach a decent enough score of 187 runs which can be considered to be more than a defendable total at the Wankhede Stadium. However, CSK’s Ambati Rayudu pulled off a great innings of his own and took CSK to a winning position before departing. The responsibilty was then on the shoulders of MS Dhoni and Ravindra Jadeja to win the match from there. While MS Dhoni tried but got out, Ravindra Jadeja stayed on the pitch till the very end. However, that did not stop netizens from criticising him as according to many, Jadeja’s low strike rate was what ultimately led CSK to lose this match which they should have won practically.

Let us take a look at how fans reacted to the performance of Ravindra Jadeja in this match.
