Ravindra Jadeja is always a good fielder with good arms in the Indian team. He is very keen, quick and up-to-the mark when chasing a ball. Meanwhile, he does another brilliant show of his fielding prowess on the second day of the test against Australia in Rachi and it looked so similar to Dhoni, former captain of India.
Here is the video:
During the third test between India and Australia in Ranchi on Friday, fans were treated to a nostalgic moment when Ravindra Jadeja ran out Josh Hazlewood in a similar fashion to that of Dhoni.
After failing to build partnerships with his other teammates, captain Steve Smith, unbeaten on 178, was left with tail-ender Hazlewood for the final wicket. Jadeja pitched the ball down the leg stump, which forced Smith to play a flick down leg for a run and forced the lanky pacer to push for a second. KL Rahul chased the ball and released it quickly to Jadeja at the non-striking end, who then produced a no-look, reverse flick to end the Australian innings.
The left-arm spinner, who had already claimed 5 wickets to his name, showed great presence of mind to step out further from the crease and receive the ball instead of not budging and waiting for it to come to him standing behind the stumps. Had Jadeja not been focused, who knows, Smith could have pushed out for a double century.
