Before the crucial game’s toss, Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma and CSK counterpart Ravindra Jadeja engaged in some amusing banter.
Jadeja won the toss and chose to bat first against the Mumbai Indians. Jadeja was walking back after answering Nick Knight’s questions when Rohit stopped him and said “What about fielding? You stated that you would bat.”
