IPL 2023: Ben Stokes, Ravindra Jadeja play similar shots at CSK’s practice session, Watch

New Delhi: There is no doubt that Chennai Super Kings have one of the destructive middle-order in the Indian Premier League (IPL), and the addition of England’s southpaw Ben Stokes added more flavour to it.

Jadeja crucial for CSK

On the other hand is Ravindra Jadeja another left-hand combination for the CSK. Jadeja has been the part of Chennai franchise since 2012. He played the crucial rule in lifting the trophy in 2018 and 2020.

Jadeja, Stokes: Best all-rounders

Ravindra Jadeja and Ben Stokes both are the best all-rounder in all the formats of the game in today’s time. The duo also share the similar batting shots also, due to their same batting style, ‘left-hand-batter.’

Both practice similar shots

In the practice session ahead of the opening match against Gujarat Titans (GT) both the all-rounder resorted to very similar shots in the recent CSK net session at Chepauk. Front foot defence, back foot flick, coming the down the track and lofting the ball straight over the bowler’s head, it’s all the same.

The four-times champion posted the video of their practice session on their Twitter handle. CSK captioned it as, “Southpaws Unplugged.”
