Sunrisers Hyderabad’s batsman Kedar Jadhav, who was at the receiving end of criticism and trolling for his poor performances, finally contributed to the team’s cause as he played a short yet effective knock against his former team Chennai Super Kings. It was Jadhav’s third match of the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League and the cricketer was finally able to contribute towards his side.
Before the game kickstarted at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, SRH’s skipper David Warner won the toss and chose to bat first. David Warner and Jonny Bairstow walked out in the middle to open the innings for their team. While Bairstow was dismissed early after facing only five balls, on the other hand, Warner smashed 57 off 55 balls.
Warner formed a partnership with Manish Pandey, who turned out to be the highest-scoring batsman today. He scored 61 runs off 46 balls.
Though SRH looked destined to a total of 150 runs, however, destiny had something else in mind as Kane Williamson and Kedar Jadhav added quickfire 37 runs in the last 13 balls for the 4th wicket and took the score of SRH to 171/3 in 20 overs.
Kane Williamson made 26* in 10 balls with 4 fours and 1 six. However, it was the performance of Kedar Jadhav that stole all the attention. He slammed Sam Curran for a four and six on the last two balls of the 20th over and finished on 12* in 4 balls.
Meanwhile, as soon as Kedar Jadhav’s quickfire knock came to an end, social media was already flooded with amazing reactions from Twitterati on this. From hilarious memes to jokes, fans on social media are trolling CSK after Jadhav’s special cameo.

People are surprised seeing Kedar Jadhav perform well against CSK forgetting the fact that he's been doing that for a few years now.
