Chasing a mammoth target of 203, Chennai emerged victorious with 1 ball to spare at Chepauk. Ravindra Jadeja finished the game in style for Chennai and they won yet another 2018 IPL game in a dramatic fashion. And all that happened in the final over of which was handed to Kolkata‘s pacer Vinay Kumar. The game was evenly poised before the final over with Chennai requiring 17 to win.

Kumar began with a no-ball full toss that was smashed into the stands by Dwayne Bravo. It was followed by three runs from the next two deliveries before he bowled a wide. The equation came down to 4 off 2 and Jadeja dispatched the penultimate delivery to the stands.

Kumar ended up conceding 19 runs that over. Kumar has had a strange 2018 IPL season. In the game against Bangalore, Kumar began with leaking 14 runs in his first over and in his final spell he conceded 16. Similarly, in the match against Chennai, Kumar was hammered by Shane Watson giving away 16 runs and the final over was a forgettable one for him.

Social media did not spare a moment to troll the pacer and this is what they had to say after the final ‘Vinay Kumar’ special over:













Kolkata will play their next game against Hyderabad on Saturday.
