Chennai Super Kings all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been named as the Cricket World Player Of The Week after producing a couple of impressive performances in the Champions League T20 2014.

Jadeja helped his side to victories over Dolphins and Perth Scorchers and they are now well placed to reach the semi-finals.

In the first game of the week, Jadeja thumped 40 in just 14 balls, including three fours and three sixes, as Chennai posted 242 for six against their South African opponents.

They went on to win by 54 runs.

After their midweek game against Lahore Lions was washed out, Jadeja was at it again as Perth Scorchers were beaten by 13 runs.

This time, Jadeja's 44 not out in 28 balls helped Chennai bounce back from a slow start and they posted 155 for six.

Jadeja then took a catch and bowled four overs for 26 runs to complete a successful week for the all-rounder.

There were other outstanding performances in the Champions League this week, including an innings of 90 from his team-mate Suresh Raina and an unbeaten 111 from Barbados Tridents batsman Jonathan Carter.

Four-wicket hauls taken by Karanveer Singh and Sunil Narine were also highly impressive.

Away from the Champions League, the West Indies Women-New Zealand Women Twenty20 International series went right down to the wire before the New Zealanders won the final game on a Super Over.

Deandra Dottin, who scored a half-century, an innings of 40 and took three wickets in the second game ran Jadeja close for our award this week.

Holly Huddleston also deserves a mention for a haul of three for seven in the opening match which included two maidens.
