Jadeja, who struck an unbeaten 11-ball 31, turned around after hitting the final six and pointed to his name at the back of his jersey.

On CSK’s jersey, their tagline #WhistlePodu is printed at the top followed by their owner’s name – India Cements, jersey number and then player’s name.
Jadeja began pointing to the team owner’s name that sparked hilarious responses on micro-blogging website Twitter. His celebrations even made India Cements a top trending topic for some time.
The allrounder may be forgiven considering the name of a cricketer is printed at the top on India jerseys and he may have forgotten that teeny-tiny change.

Meanwhile, CSK win means KKR’s chances of making it to the playoffs have been severely dented. It also means that defending champions Mumbai Indians, who started the season with a defeat, have become the first team to make the playoffs. Barring CSK, the remaining six teams are still in contention for a top-four finish with Royal Challengers Bangalore, Delhi Capitals and Kings XI Punjab leading the race.
