India vs Australia 2017, Third Test, Ranchi: Ravindra Jadeja was once again the best bowler on show for India, on Day 5 of the ongoing Test between India and Australia. Jadeja troubled the Aussie batsmen with his consistent line and length and took 3 of the first 4 wickets in Australia’s second innings.
In the last session of Day 4, Ravindra Jadeja dismissed David Warner and then followed it up by sending the night watchman Nathan Lyon back to the pavilion. But the most important wicket he took was of Australian captain Steve Smith. Smith has been Australia’s best batsman in the series so far and he is the only batsman, in both the teams, to score 2 hundreds in the series.
Jadeja was bowling over the wicket to Smith and taking the ball away from him. Smith was looking to use his pad to avoid bat-pad, but he misjudged a straight delivery from Jadeja and left it straight onto the stumps. The ball pitched on about leg stump and spun a little to hit the off stump. Smith couldn’t believe what he had done there as he took the long walk back to the pavilion. Watch it here:
