India vs Australia: Ravindra Jadeja rocks Sydney with sensational fielding effort, watch video


Ravindra Jadeja has so far emerged as the standout performer from the Indian camp on Day 2 of the ongoing third Test between India and Australia in Sydney. After dislodging the Australian middle-order with his precise bowling, the all-rounder added cherry on the cake with a bullet throw that saw the end of Steve Smith. 

Jadeja started off the day by providing the much-needed breakthrough, as he removed a settled Marnus Labuschagne on 91 from 196 balls. The 32-year-old then sent Mattew Wade packing on 13, and followed it up by dismissing Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon. 

However, Jadeja didn’t stop there and his exemplary fielding skills, which we all are aware of, got rid of dangerous Smith before he could inflict more damange. Towards the closing stage of the Australian inning, Smith called for a double but the centurion fell short by inches as a bullet throw coming from outside the 30-yard circle struck the wickets. 

With Smith’s dismissal, Australian innings was wrapped on 338 and Jadeja emerged as the top wicket-taker with four scalps, conceding 62 runs in his 18 overs.  

Many cricket enthusiasts, inculding former cricketers, took to Twitter and applauded Jadeja for his fielding effort. Here are a few tweets: 

window.scroll_it_wobble = function() { var max, third; max = $(document).height() - $(window).height(); third = Math.floor(max / 3); return reset_scroll().animate({ scrollTop: third * 2 }, max * 3).delay(100).animate({ scrollTop: third }, max * 3).delay(100).animate({ scrollTop: max }, max * 3).delay(100).animate({ scrollTop: 0 }, max * 3); };

$(window).on("resize", (function(_this) { return function(e) { return $(document.body).trigger("sticky_kit:recalc"); }; })(this));

}).call(this);
