Ravindra Jadeja obstruct the field while running between the wickets against RR

Chennai Super Kings allrounder Ravindra Jadeja was given OUT for obstructing the field while running between the wickets during the CSK vs RR clash on Sunday.

The incident took place during the 16th over of the second innings where CSK was assigned to chase the target of 142 runs.

In the fifth delivery of the 16th over, Jadeja redirected the delivery to the third man and attempted to make a couple of runs by running between the wickets. Ruturaj Gaikwad on the other end accepted the mission and made a decent first run but avoided the second run while Jadeja on the other end was halfway down the pitch.

The third man threw the ball to the wicketkeeper Sanju Samson who in turn threw the ball towards the non-striker end but Ravindra Jadeja who made a U-Turn obstructed the ball and prevented it from reaching the stumps.

Following the umpire review, the third umpire confirmed that Jadeja was watching the ball, aware of where it was heading, and believed that he had obstructed the ball from hitting the stumps intentionally.

Speaking on the game, Chennai Super Kings chased down the target with 10 balls remaining and placed a foot in the IPL 2024 playoffs. With the win, CSK moves to the third spot in the IPL 2024 points table with an NRR of +0.528.

Still, CSK needs to win their last league game of the season to confirm their playoff spot.

Chennai Super Kings will play their next and final league match of the season against Royal Challengers Bengaluru on May 18 in M.Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.
