All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja starred with both bat and ball to help Chennai Super Kings thrash Deccan Chargers by 74 runs in Visakhapatnam.

The India international hit 48 from 29 deliveries to help the Super Kings, who lost their opening match in this year's Indian Premier League to the Mumbai Indians on Wednesday, post an imposing total of 193-6.

He then claimed three of the last four wickets to fall to finish with figures of 5-16, meaning the Chargers were dismissed for just 119 in 17.3 overs.

Chennai had put just two on the board when Murali Vijay was dismissed by Ankit Sharma, but a 25-ball 39 from Faf du Plessis - which featured four sixes - put them back on track.

Jadeja came in when the South African was dismissed and proceeded to hit three sixes and the same number of fours before he was out hit wicket to Dale Steyn.


However, West Indies all-rounder Dwayne Bravo maintained the momentum for Chennai, belting five sixes off 18 balls en route to an unbeaten 43.

Deccan's chase was given a solid start by opening pair Dan Harris (15) and Shikhar Dhawan (21), while skipper Cameron White weighed in with 23 from 16 deliveries.

Yet from 85-3 their innings subsided in a hurry, the collapse starting with the fall of White midway through the 12th over.

Jadeja claimed his first wicket by dismissing Parthiv Patel for 20 and then ran through the lower order, though Doug Bollinger finished things off when he had Ankit Sharma caught off the first ball of the 18th over.
