IPL 2021 CSK vs RCB: The 19th match of the Indian Premier League 2021 is being played between CSK and RCB at Wankhede Stadium Mumbai. CSK won the toss and elected to bat first and made 191 runs with the loss of 4 wickets in 20 overs.
CSK achieved this score only because of one man in their team known as Ravindra Jadeja.
Ravindra Jadeja completely destroyed the current Purple cap Holder Harshal Patel in the 20th over of CSK’s innings.
He smashed Harshal for mind-boggling 37 runs and became the joint record holder of scoring the most runs in an over in the IPL history.
Earlier, Chris Gayle was the sole holder of this record which he made in the IPL 2011 against Kochi Tuskers.
