A day after Chennai Super Kings’ emphatic win over the Delhi Capitals which sealed their spot in the play-offs, Ravindra Jadeja sent Twitter into overdrive when he posted a cryptic tweet about karma.
“Karma will get back at you, sooner or later it surely will,” said the post Jadeja shared on Twitter, captioning it “Definitely” with a thumbs up emoji.
Ravindra Jadeja and cryptic tweets are nothing new. In 2013, he had tweeted lines that were credited to American rapper Eminem. “Don’t even try and judge me dude. You have no idea what the f*ck I’ve been through.” The following year, he posted, “Need new haters, the old ones are starting to like me.”
After he was retained by Chennai in December 2022 before the IPL mini auction, he had said on Twitter, “Everything is fine #RESTART” with a picture of himself and captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Meanwhile on Saturday, Chennai crushed Delhi by 77 runs to clinch a place in the Indian Premier League play-offs.
CSK ended their 14-match league campaign with 17 points and that is good enough to seal a last-four berth.
Batting first, opener Devon Conway’s 87 off only 51 balls and Ruturaj Gaikwad’s smashing 79 off 50 deliveries ensured a healthy 223 for 3 CSK. Conway’s innings comprised 11 fours and three sixes while Gaikwad hit seven sixes apart from three boundaries as they added 141 for the opening stand.
In reply, DC managed only 146 for 9 with skipper David Warner’s 86 off 58 balls being the only saving grace.
Deepak Chahar ended with 3/22 from 4 overs while Maheesh Theekshana and Matheesha Pathirana got two wickets apiece.
DC ended the campaign with 10 points and will have to wait till Sunday to find out if they ended last or second last depending on Sunrisers Hyderabad’s result.
