A phone call, Dhoni’s friend doing commentary got back in IPL, missed winning against MI

New Delhi. During the match against Mumbai Indians, the team of Royal Challengers had given a big score to win but Suryakumar Yadav and Nehal Wadhera kept Virat Kohli’s team away from victory. Batting first, RCB scored 199 runs at the loss of six wickets in the stipulated 20 overs. MI, chasing the target, won this match in 16.3 overs. An all-rounder doing commentary in IPL 2023 also came out to bat on the field during this match. We are talking about Kedar Jadhav.

Kedar Jadhav was not bought by any team during the IPL auction. After which he joined the commentary panel. He was doing commentary in IPL. Meanwhile, he got a call from RCB coach Sanjay Bangar. Jadhav, who played his last IPL match in the year 2021, was given a chance in the Bangalore team in place of David Willey.

Although Jadhav came on the field in his second match this season during the match against Mumbai, but this was the first time he got a chance to bat. During the match, Jadhav did not get a chance to do anything special. He faced 10 balls and scored an unbeaten 12 with the help of a four. RCB expected him to hit fast fours and sixes during the death overs but he failed in this. Although this is his first IPL match after two years. In such a situation, his ability cannot be evaluated on the basis of one innings. The Bangalore team did not make him bowl during the match.

A phone call changed the fate…

On being selected in the RCB team, Kedar Jadhav had said, “Sanjay Bhai called me and asked what are you doing at this time. I told him that I am doing commentary. Then he asked whether you are practicing or not. I said that I practice two days a week. I am also doing gym in the hotel. After that he told me to give some time, I will call you back. After which he told me that we want you to play for RCB.
