MS Dhoni’s long-time deputy and Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) famous ‘Chinna Thala’ Suresh Raina is not the part of on-going IPL 2020 in UAE and it seems like the fans, who have been missing him after Chennai-based franchise’s series of poor performances, have found his replacement.
Yellow Army’s Ravindra Jadeja came all guns blazing against Delhi Capitals on Saturday and blasted an unbeaten 33 runs off 13 balls to take his team to a very good total of 179 at the end of their 20 overs quota. ‘Sir’ Jadeja’s innings consisted of 4 gigantic sixes, including the one which went in the streets of Sharjah. on the 5th delivery of the 18th over Jadeja smashed a Tushar Deshpande delivery over deep square leg and it sailed far enough to land onto Sharjah streets. A lucky pedestrian became the happy owner of the white-ball.
The 18th over saw Jadeja charging none other than the Purple Cap holder Kagiso Rabada. The final over was no different as Jadeja smacked IPL’s fastest bowler Anrich Nortje for back to back sixes. The southpaw partnered for 50 runs off 21 balls with Ambati Rayudu and gave is team the much-needed momentum going into the second innings of the match.
After Ravindra Jadeja show at Sharjah, fans went berserk at their homes and flooded Twitter with massive praises for the star all-rounder. One of them went on to call him CSK’s ‘new’ Chinna Thala. Notably, on normal days Chennai calls Suresh Raina the Chinna Thala to Thala MS Dhoni.
The ‘old’ Chinna Thala Suresh Raina was himself in awe of Ravindra Jadeja’s brilliance with the bat. Raina, who has opted out of IPL 2020 due to personal reasons, said, “What shots Jaddu. Well done brother.”

Some people on twitter believe that Jadeja can’t smash International bowlers and is of no value in T20s. Take that haters.
