Ravindra Jadeja slammed his third century in whites in the rescheduled fifth Test against England. The left-handed all-rounder reached the triple-figure mark with a boundary against Matty Potts after which there was a roar of applause from the stand as Jadeja dished out his trademark celebration.
Virat Kohli was on cloud nine and was spotted cheering for Jadeja alongside teammates Cheteshwar Pujara and Shubman Gill.
After hitting the two centuries in a calendar year he joined the former captains Kapil Dev and MS Dhoni and spin great Harbhajan Singh in the elite list.
That moment and the sword celebration 😌❤️ #Jadeja #ENGvINDpic.twitter.com/RjRN6FSOm0— HemaPriya07 (@attitudegirl___) July 2, 2022
Jasprit Bumrah scored an unbeaten 31 runs off 16 balls (four fours and two sixes) after Jadeja left the field to aid India in scoring 416. India struggled to 98 for five on Day 1 after a severe top-order collapse. Rishabh Pant, however, had other ideas and created a masterclass to aid India in mounting a comeback. With 19 fours and four sixes, the wicketkeeper-batter slammed 146 runs off 111 balls.
The visitors, who are up 2-1, will try to keep up their momentum and win the series.
