WATCH : Ishant-Jadeja engages in playful banter transforming old camaraderie into rivalry


Chennai’s batting endured its weakest powerplay performance of the season as they began their innings. Both openers, Ruturaj Gaikwad and Rachin Ravindra, departed in the third and fourth overs respectively, leaving CSK struggling at 32/2 after six overs.

With Ajinkya Rahane and Daryl Mitchell leading the charge, the team reached 75/2 by the 10th over. However, CSK faced a setback with the quick dismissals of Rahane, Mitchell, and Sameer Rizvi. Amidst this challenging chase, a light-hearted incident unfolded between two longtime friends.

In the third ball of the 14th over, Ishant Sharma bowled an overpitched delivery to Shivam Dube, resulting in a sliced shot to deep point. However, the third umpire intervened, ruling it a no-ball just as Ishant was about to bowl again, this time to Ravindra Jadeja.

Despite the interruption, the 35-year-old Indian pacer managed to deliver an excellent yorker, causing Jadeja some trouble as he managed to get the ball onto the pitch. In the midst of this, Ishant swiftly approached Jadeja to retrieve the ball.

However, upon picking it up, he shared a humorous exchange with CSK’s renowned all-rounder amidst friendly banter. This moment of camaraderie-turned-rivalry between the two old friends sparked laughter on Twitter, becoming a trending topic of discussion.
