IND Vs AUS Day 5: Twitterati Lauds Ravindra Jadeja For Stunning Bowling Performance

AIR Staff

The visitors lost Matt Renshaw and Steve Smith in quick succession after surviving the first hour of play in the first session. Ishant Sharma gave India the first breakthrough of the day by removing Renshaw while Ravindra Jadeja got the better of Smith just before lunch.

Confused, trapped and a horrendous leave; well such things can happen to great players, happened to Virat Kohli in Pune and now to Australian captain Steven Smith in Ranchi. Ssoon after the first drinks break that the visitors lost Matt Renshaw who was soon followed by the captain Steve Smith back to the dressing room.

Big wicket for India. Steve Smith has to make his way back to the pavillion. Brilliant bowling by Jadeja. Comes over the wicket, pitches it in the rough and Smith offers no shot only to see his off-stump pegged back.

Steven Smith got himself out and not Jadeja. Well, looking at the manner of his dismissal, he was not intact with the line of the ball and seemed confused whether to play or leave, and in a split second chose the second option and payed the price. The ball which was always turning, dislodged Smith’s off-stump from the ground and with that Australia’s hope of sticking around till the end.

The Australian tried to play the ball with the pad but the ball after taking a turn from the rough, went on to disturb his off-stump. His dismissal brought smile on Indian faces.
