IPL 2018: In An Extremely Shameful Incident, Shoes Were Hurled At Ravindra Jadeja And Faf du Plessis During CSK’s Match

A couple of miscreants were detained by police for hurling a shoe at Ravindra Jadeja during a match between Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders.

It happened in the eighth over of the KKR innings.

The unidentified protestors hurled shoes at Jadeja, who was stationed at long-on. The footwear missed the player fell near the boundary rope as Faf du Plessis and Lungi Ngidi were taking a stroll.

The match was preceded by massive protests from various groups and activists due to Cauvery water dispute prompting IPL governing council chairman Rajeev Shukla to seek government intervention.

The two persons detained by the police for their involvement are allegedly a part of actor-director Seeman’s Naam pro-Tamil outfit Tamizhar.
