Notably, Shastri isn’t the only one to go gaga over the Chennai Super Kings star. Earlier, the likes of Michael Vaughan and Virender Sehwag also lauded the Indian all-rounder for his sheer brilliance. Even, Virat Kohli accepted that RCB were undone by a single man.
“One guy completely beat us. Today his skill was there for everyone to see. He (Harshal Patel) bowled well and we will continue to back him. His two wickets of the set batters took the momentum away from CSK before Jaddu took it away in the final over,” the RCB captain said after the game.
Meanwhile, Chennai Super Kings will next meet Sunrisers Hyderabad and would like to continue their winning run. The encounter takes place at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Thursday (April 29).
