India dominated Australia in the first Test of the four-match Test series. Indian team captain Rohit Sharma celebrated his brilliant century on the second day of the Test being played in Nagpur. Apart from him, Ravindra Jadeja also took good notice of the visiting team’s bowlers. Jadeja, who returned to international cricket after almost six months, celebrated his 18th Test half-century by crushing the Australian bowlers. After this he scored a half-century, it was a sight to behold. Virat was also happy to see his celebration this time. Now his video is going viral.
The bat swung like a sword as soon as he reached his half century
Ravindra Jadeja celebrated his half-century by taking one run off the fourth ball of Scott Boland’s 93rd over. He faced 113 balls to make this half century. This time he also hit 7 fours. It became his 18th half-century in his Test career. Jadeja celebrated by swinging his bat in the air like a sword as soon as he reached the 50-run mark. This is Jadeja’s fifth fifty in 13 matches against Australia. Also, it became his third half-century against Australia in India.
And the trademark celebration is here 😀😀@imjadeja 💪

Ashwin was also happy
As soon as Jadeja scored his half-century, the entire stadium erupted in applause. R Ashwin, who was sitting in the dugout, was also overjoyed. He rose from his seat and was seen cheering in support of Jadeja.
A special record
Before his half-century, Jadeja also took 5 wickets in the first innings against Australia. So a special record was recorded in his name. In fact, this was the sixth time Jadeja has taken 5 wickets and scored 50 or more in a Test. He did so jointly with R Ashwin. Interestingly, Jadeja has consistently performed strongly in Test cricket. This is the third time Jadeja has scored 50 or more runs in the last 6 innings.
