April 8 (CRICKETNMORE) - A heroic effort from a half-fit Jadhav, who had retired hurt came out in the last over and finished it in style with a six and a four and helped Chennai Super Kings edged past three-time champions Mumbai Indians by one wicket in the opening match of the IPL 2018 on Sunday.
Jadhav speaks during press conference about the victory. He said," I am happy psychologically, but physically I am hurt. I don't know how long I will be out, maybe two weeks, three weeks or even a month. Fingers crossed, but I would like to appreciate Bravo's knock. Credit goes to him, he brought us back into the game."
"I knew I couldn't run and I needed to get the runs. I told him (Tahir) that I will try and make the runs myself, play all the six balls and try and stay still. But after three balls, I felt he (Tahir) was feeling itchy. I knew that the bowler would come under pressure, I was waiting for my chance, knew that the bad ball would come, wanted to see how my body was reacting. The deeper I took the game, he (the bowler) comes under more pressure," he added.
