One is a lethal seamer best known for his early strikes in the powerplay. The other is an inventive spinner who can weave tricks around batters anytime in the innings. They both ball left-handed and are invaluable to their respective teams. Both of them broke into the international stage following the 2008 Under-19 World Cup.

The clues hardly narrow down the list. We are speaking about Trent Boult and Ravindra Jadeja, who will soon faceoff in the IPL as Rajasthan Royals are set to meet Chennai Super Kings at the Chepauk on Sunday.

Boult and Jadeja are being discussed ahead of the clash between the second and fourth-placed teams after the Kiwis speedster was seen imitating Jadeja's bowling action in the nets. The video was released from the official social media handles of Rajasthan Royals on Friday.

"That's good?" Boult asked after sending a delivery the Jaddu-way in the nets. Did he get it right? Watch the video below and find out for yourselves...


The Royals, who were leading the IPL table till just a few days back, have slipped to the second spot following two consecutive defeats and would be desperate to get back to winning ways when they take on defending champion Chennai Super Kings.

Rajasthan Royals are currently on 16 points, the same as leaders Kolkata Knight Riders but the latter have a far superior net run rate. After they play CSK on Sunday, the Sanju Samon-led team have games against Punjab Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders.

CSK, on the other hand, will be without three of their primary bowlers -- Mustafizur Rahman (returned home), Matheesha Pathirana (hamstring injury) and Deepak Chahar (injury). Ferreira said rather than focus on the issues facing the rivals, his team would play to its strengths.
