Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is proving his worth with the bat again and again in this tour as he scores yet another half-century in this tour. Jadeja has been in the touch with his willow throughout this tour as he earlier saved India with his heroics in the third ODI with Pandya who helped India cross the 300 mark in that match. India went on to win that match. He played a crucial in the first T20 against Australia as he played a handy and quick knock of 44 which helped the team cross the 160 mark. He was ruled out for some time as he suffered a blow to the helmet while batting in the first T20.
Jadeja was included in the second match in place of Kohli. His inclusion was more for his batting than his bowling. He didn’t get much to bowl in the first innings as he bowled only 5 overs and got 1 wicket of Pat Cummins at the end. When Jadeja came in to bat the team was in a tricky position as they had lost Pant who was their last recognized batsman. Rahane was at the crease when Jadeja joined him. The duo outplayed every Australian bowler as they didn’t lose any wicket in the third session of Day 2.
Jadeja scored his 14th half-century in 147 deliveries which had 2 boundaries.
