Ravindra Jadeja miffed after rare ‘obstructing the field’ dismissal, fiercely argues with umpire during CSK vs RR

Ravindra Jadeja became the third player after Yusuf Pathan and Amit Mishra to get out of obstructing the field in the IPL.

Ravindra Jadeja became the victim of ‘obstructing the field’ dismissal in the crucial Indian Premier League clash between Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals at Chepauk Stadium. It was a rare sight in the IPL when a player got out in such a fashion. Jadeja was also miffed by the third umpire’s decision, as he looked unimpressed while taking the long walk back and also had a word with the on-field umpire.

It was the fifth ball of the 16th over when Jadeja placed the ball at third man and ran hard to get the first run. However, there was some miscommunication between him and skipper Ruturaj Gaikwad as in the attempt to convert it into a double, Jadeja had to run back from the half pitch. While turning back to return to the bowler’s end, Jadeja set his eyes on Sanju Samson, who had the ball in hand to throw at the stumps; the CSK star was in front of the wicket when the RR captain’s throw hit him.
