2nd ODI India vs Australia Adelaide: Ravindra Jadeja found himself in the thick of things in the 2nd ODI as he sent in a bullet throw which hit the bullseye to send Usman Khawaja packing for 21 in the ongoing 2nd ODI at Adelaide. The wicket came at an important juncture when Marsh along with Khawaja was stitching a 56-run partnership which was growing. Khawaja chopped it towards point, they decide to take on Jadeja’s arm. Jadeja quickly moves across, takes it one-handed and fires a bullet throw to hit the stumps at the bowler’s end. Khawaja was really lazy, didn’t step up his pace and eventually, was found short of his crease.
Here is the video of the dismissal:
Jadeja is probably the best fielder in the world currently and he adds value with everything he does on the field.
At the time of filing the copy, Australia was 108/3 in 23 overs, with Handscomb and Marsh in the middle.
The Men-in-Blue lost the first contest at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) by 34 runs and the world no.2 side will be looking to regain dominance in the second match. In the do-or-die affair, India will rely heavily on the top three of Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan and skipper Virat Kohli once again, as none of the lower and middle order batsmen, barring former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, clicked in Sydney.
India (Playing XI): Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli (C), Ambati Rayudu, MS Dhoni (wk), Dinesh Karthik, Ravindra Jadeja, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Kuldeep Yadav, Mohammed Siraj, Mohammed Shami
