In Photos: Jadeja’s final-over carnage against RCB

The irrepressible Ravindra Jadeja blasted an IPL record-equalling 37 runs in one over and then grabbed three big wickets in an outstanding all-round display as Chennai Super Kings crushed Royal Challengers Bangalore by 69 runs on Sunday night. The 32-year-old all-rounder smashed the runs in the final over of the Chennai innings off Harshal Patel who had earlier been the star of Bangalore's bowling taking three wickets.

The left-handed batsman, who was dropped on 0 by Dan Christian off Washington Sundar in the 15th over, made full use of the reprieve to finish on 62 off 28 balls after ruining what was turning out to be an excellent outing for purple cap holder Patel, with his brutal last over onslaught.

Jadeja hit the first two balls, both off length, for sixes that already put the bowler on edge. His third ball was a no-ball that Jadeja also bludgeoned over the ropes while earning a free hit. The repeat ball also went for six over deep square leg, taking Jadeja past 50. From 3/14 in three overs, Harshal finished with figures of 3/51.

He took two runs off the fourth ball, when he was nearly caught, hit another six off a full toss for the fifth ball and a four off the final ball of the innings which bounced close to the boundary line.

Jadeja equalled an IPL record of 37 runs in an over set by West Indies star Chris Gayle for Bangalore in 2011. New Zealand's Scott Styris hit 38 runs in an English T20 contest in 2012.
