Ravindra Jadeja put in a stunning all-round performance to take Chennai Super Kings to a thumping 69-run win over Royal Challengers Bangalore in a top-of-the-table IPL clash.

Having been dropped on nought, the CSK all-rounder proceeded to blitz an unbeaten 62 from just 28 balls, including five sixes – four in a row – in a remarkable last over from Harshal Patel that cost 37 runs as Chennai posted 191-4.

That was just the start though as he took 3-13 with his left-arm spin, bowling two of RCB’s most dangerous batsmen, Glenn Maxwell and AB de Villiers, either side of running out Dan Christian with a direct hit in one of the most dominant all-round T20 efforts in recent times.
