Pune: When Pune Warriors openers Robin Utthappa and Aaron Finch stepped on to the field to chase Chennai Super Kings target of 165 runs, Skipper M S Dhoni handed over the ball to 'Sir Jadeja' to begin proceedings on Tuesday. But on the second ball itself 'Sir Jadeja' did an act which prompted everyone including the viewers to laugh.

Actually, on the second delivery of the first over, ball slipped out of Jadeja’s hand and dropped outside the playing strip. Striker Utthappa started to walk to hit the ball but he checked himself in the end and started laughing instead. Following that, all the players including skipper MSD also burst into laughter. The situation became so hilarious that even umpires could not resist themselves from laughing. However, taking in good spirits, 'Sir Jadeja' immediately picked the ball and got ready to bowl the next delivery.

It is to be noted that this is not the first occasion when ball slipped out of the hands of 'Sir Jadeja'. Last year when English team was touring India, similar kind of incident was witnessed during the Nagpur test. That time, Jonathan Trott was on strike and he did not lose the opportunity to hit the ball for a boundary.
