Team India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was at his best in the second Test against Australia at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi. He rattled the Australian batters with his sharp bowling performance in the second innings of the game. Jadeja finished the innings with seven wickets, as Australia was bowled out for a paltry 113. Among his wickets was a brilliant delivery to castle Marnus Labuschange.
The Australian batter came out to bat after the fall of Usman Khawaja’s wicket. He tried to get the innings on track but failed to convert his start. Labuschagne misjudged the length of Ravindra Jadeja’s arm ball. He went on the backfoot to defend the delivery, and the ball skidded through keeping low. It went on to disturb Marnus Labuschagne’s furniture. He managed 35 runs off 50 deliveries, with seven boundaries.
