In his 22 overs of the first innings, the star all-rounder bowled an impressive 5/47.
When team India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja took the ball during the first innings of the highly anticipated Test series between India and Australia, a rather questionable moment was captured on camera. On Thursday, February 9, Rohit Sharma and company will face the Australians in the first of four Test series at the Vidarbha Cricket Association (VCA) Stadium in Nagpur.
After winning the toss, Australian captain Pat Cummins chose to bat first, a decision that appeared to backfire. However, during the first innings, a strange incident was captured on camera when star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja took the ball to begin his over.
Before bowling, Jadeja is seen placing a small object on his left hand’s spinner finger. As fans and members of the cricketing fraternity began debating the questionable act, it drew a lot of attention and caused havoc on social media. Notably, former England captain Michael Vaughan and former Australian captain Tim Paine reacted to the viral video and were baffled by the unusual act performed by the Indian all-rounder.
