Ravindra Jadeja scored six and four from the last two as Chennai pursued his revised target of 171 over 15 overs with five spare wickets in a rainy final that came after 1:30 am local time Tuesday on reserve day in Ahmedabad after a dustbin on Sunday.
New Zealander Devon Conway led the chase with his 25th 47 before Ajinkya Rahane (27) and Shivam Dube undefeated 32 set the stage for Jadeja’s heroism.
Mohit Sharma needed 13 points after the final out and Mohit Sharma scored four good balls before Jadeja hit a winning streak, sparking a big celebration at the world’s largest cricket stadium.
