IPL 2021: MS Dhoni predicts how Ravindra Jadeja should get rid of Jos Buttler
Chennai Super Kings are in superb form at the moment. They have a long batting order and has immense depth in their batting arsenal and besides that, they have superb bowlers who can rattle the opposition's batting line-up. Deepak Chahar's special bowling weapons were there for everyone to see in the match against Punjab Kings.
Chahar picked up 4 wickets to his name, conceding just 13 runs in his quota of 4 overs where he also bowled a maiden over. Chahar's bowling masterclass helped Chennai Super Kings secure their first win of the season. After that, they locked horns with Rajasthan Royals in their third game at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.
CSK comfortably defeated Sanju Samson-led Rajasthan Royals by 45 runs on Monday night to register their second victory of this season. During the match, skipper MS Dhoni was seen backing his bowlers to get wickets. CSK worked very well as a team and got their plan, basics, tactics and strategy right throughout the game.
MS Dhoni predicts how Jadeja should get rid of Buttler
Chennai Super Kings posted a huge total of 188/9 in their full quota of 20 overs. Faf du Plessis top-scored with 33 off 17 whereas arguably the best all-rounder in IPL history Dwayne Bravo helped the yellow army add runs in the death overs. The Caribbean scored 20 off just 8 balls in the end and steered his team to a commanding position.
Rajasthan Royals' danger man is Jos Buttler because he can single-handedly take the bowling attack to the cleaners. During the crucial juncture of the fixture, when Ravindra Jadeja was bowling to Jos Buttler when the latter was batting on 49, CSK captain MS Dhoni came up with a prediction that was later displayed by Jadeja and the prediction came true.
MS Dhoni can be seen predicting before the wicket of Jos Buttler. In the viral video which is doing the rounds on the internet, MS Dhoni was caught telling Jadeja that the ball was dry and would rotate. On the very next ball, Jadeja delivered a spin ball to Buttler and the tactic paid off.
The incident took place during the 12th over of the game where Jadeja made a mess of Buttler's stumps. Rajasthan Royals collapsed like a pack of cards in the game where they eventually managed to score 143/9 in 20 overs. Moeen Ali took 3 wickets to his name whereas Ravindra Jadeja and Sam Curran took 2 wickets each.
