Kedar Jadhav became the target for the ire of CSK fans, as the franchise found it difficult to win matches during crunch times in the IPL 2020. The all-rounder played 8 matches and made 62 runs with the best of 26 at a strike-rate of 93.93 and didn’t hit a single six.
He was not called onto bowl as well and his fielding was way below standards. Yet he was constantly backed by MS Dhoni and the team management despite clearly struggling to get bat on the ball and was not the Jadhav people knew could hit big shots and take risks when quick runs were needed.
He had done nothing of note in IPL 2019 as well, while in IPL 2020, the performance went from bad to worse, with die-hard CSK fans baying for his blood every time he ate up balls when the required run-rate was rising.
