IPL 2022: Ravindra Jadeja missed two catches and MS Dhoni missed a stumping as CSK defeated MI on Thursday in Navi Mumbai.
Twitter went haywire as Ravindra Jadeja dropped two catches and MS Dhoni missed an easy stumping during Chennai Super Kings’ (CSK) win against Mumbai Indians (MI) in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season at the Dr DY Patil Sports Academy in Navi Mumbai on Thursday. Jadeja missed the first catch on the final delivery of Mitchell Santner’s second over as Dewald Brevis directed it towards mid-off with the CSK skipper running in from extra cover. He missed another catch in the 12th over, dropping Hrithik Shokeen. Meanwhile, Dhoni missed an oppurtunity to send Suryakumar Yadav back to the pavilion as he missed an easy stumping. People reacted to the drama on Twitter with former Delhi Capitals (DC) spinner Amit Mishra leading the reactions.
“Jadeja dropping a catch and MSD missing a stumping is like Shahid Afridi batting sensibly with eyes open. No one can believe it happened”, he wrote.
