Ranchi: Skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni credited Ravindra Jadeja for taking the pressure off in the death overs as Chennai Super Kings raced to a five-wicket win against Rajasthan Royals in a thrilling Indian Premier League match in Ranchi on Tuesday. Jadeja struck Kevon Cooper for a six at long-off in the 19th over, leaving Chennai to get 12 runs in the last six balls.
Dhoni completed the formalities with two balls to spare after slapping James Faulkner for a six at mid-wicket. Dhoni (26 off 16 balls, 1x4, 1x6) and Jadeja (11 off 6 balls, 1x6) produced 28 runs off 13 balls to take table-toppers Chennai to the winning target of 149. After proving why he is one of the coolest finisher of games, Dhoni complimented Jadeja saying: "The big shot from Jadeja really helped. Otherwise, there would have been a bit more pressure."
