Chennai Super Kings (CSK) all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is just 73 runs away from completing 2000 runs in IPL. Jadeja has been an indispensable part of the CSK team ever since he joined them from Rajasthan Royals. He has 108 scalps to his name in the IPL which puts him at the 10th spot for most wickets.
The Chennai-based side is in training after facing an extended quarantine when 13 members of the squad, including two players, tested positive for COVID 19. The two players that tested positive were Deepak Chahar and Ruturaj Gaikwad.
The IPL 2020 will be played between September 19 and November 10. The matches will be played in Dubai, Abu Dhabi, and Sharjah.
Ravindra Jadeja on the cusp of an IPL record
Jadeja is just 73 runs away from completing 2000 runs in IPL. If he can do that, then he will become the only all-rounder to complete the double of 2000 runs and 100 wickets in IPL.
Ravindra Jadeja has a bizarre record to his name he has scored more than 1500 runs in the tournament without ever getting past the 50-run mark. The reason being he comes down the order to bat and hardly gets enough balls to play.
The all-rounder will most probably get his name to the record this season unless the CSK upper order doesn’t give him any chance to bat.
CSK ready to battle for their 4th IPL title:
CSK are without veterans Harbhajan Singh and Suresh Raina in this IPL, but still, have a strong team in their hands to compete for the title.
Dhoni has led the Chennai based side to three IPL and two CL T20 titles. IPL 2020 is being played in the UAE due to the mammoth numbers of coronavirus cases in India. The tournament will be played from 19th of September to 10th November. CSK will face MI in the opener on 19th, the last time these two sides met was the final of IPL 2019 and Mumbai won by a single run.
CSK have won the IPL title three times and MSD will be looking to add one more piece of silverware to his huge collection. MS Dhoni will be back in action in September leading CSK in the 13th edition of the IPL. The tournament starts on the 19th of September and the final will be played on November 10.
