"Players adapt to the situation very quickly and I don't think there would be any negative impact on players because of limited-overs cricket," Jadeja said after his team Gujarat Lions' seven-wicket win over Rising Pune Super Giants here.

 

The Lions' chased down a competitive 164 with Brendon McCullum (49) and Aaron Finch (50) being the star performers with the bat.

Finch and McCullum notched up 85 runs for the opening wicket. Finch made 50 off 36 balls with seven fours and two sixes while McCullum scored a 31-ball 49 with three fours and three sixes.
