In the ongoing World Test Championships Final against New Zealand, the Chennai Super Kings man scored 15 runs in India’s first innings and clean bowled, Kiwi speedster Tim Southee on Day 5. New Zealand managed to put up a score of 249 runs in the first innings. He has been a fabulous contributor to Indian Cricket in which ever format he plays and he has stepped up whenever his team needed him. The match has taken it’s turn into the Reserve Day due to the bad weather conditions in Southampton. Team India will definitely be looking forward to what Jadeja has to offer on the final day.
