Jadeja-Ashwin show better than Kapil Dev! A new record was created in the Nagpur Test
Indian spinner all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja became the hero of the Indian team in the first innings of the Nagpur Test. Jadeja’s role was the most important to wrap up the Australian team cheaply in the first innings. Jadeja took five wickets as a bowler in the first innings. He also completed his own half-century before the end of the day’s play on Friday (February 10). After this performance, Jadeja topped a special list.
Indian team bowled first after losing the toss in this match. Batting first, the Australian team was bowled out for just 177 runs in the first innings. Ravindra Jadeja’s role was the most important to dismiss Australia cheaply. Jadeja bowled 22 overs in the first innings and took five wickets at the cost of 47 runs. So far, Jadeja has scored five wicket hauls and half-centuries seven times in Test cricket. Jadeja became only the second Indian player to achieve this feat in seven Test matches. Ravichandran Ashwin had done this earlier. Also, former captain of the Indian team, Kapil Dev, had scored five wickets and a half-century four times.

4 – Kapil Dev
Meanwhile, if we consider this match between the two teams as a whole, India did not allow any Australian batsman to score a half century in the first innings. Marnus Labuschagne top-scored for Australia with 49, while Steve Smith was dismissed with 37 runs. After Jadeja, spinner Ravichandran Ashwin took the most 3 wickets for India. Although the pitch looked favorable for the spinners, the first two wickets for the Indian team were taken by fast bowlers Mohammad Siraj and Mohammad Shami. However, there is no doubt that the spin magic will be seen on the pitch during the last three days of the Test match.
