    Netizens churned out hilarious Jadeja and Dhoni memes that captured the pulse of the cricket fans in the nation.
    Chennai Super Kings may have crashed out of the Indian Premiere League (IPL) 2020, but that doesn't mean that the men in yellow aren't giving their best in matches. In fact, the wooden-spooners are now playing not for glory but pride.

    However, to some, it seems like the men in yellow are now playing trolls by making it extra difficult for some teams to qualify for the playoffs. For instance, the Kings spoiled the party for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) players by winning the match yesterday, chasing a score of 173 runs, thereby making Mumbai Indians the first team to qualify for playoffs.

    That's not all. The match became the talk-of-the-town due to an excellent finish by ace batsman Ravindra Jadeja who hit two sixes in the last two deliveries and successfully chased the target of 173 runs.
