The first Test between India and South Africa have made headlines for many reasons. One of them was a stunner from Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. During the fifth day of the ongoing first Test in Visakhapatnam, Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja grabbed a one-handed stunner and dismissed South Africa opener Aiden Markram.
It all happened on the first ball of the 27th over when Markram failed to play an aerial shot off Jadeja which saw him hitting the ball towards his left. Jadeja grabbed the catch with his brilliance.
Markram opened the batting with Dean Elgar (2) yesterday and he ended up scoring 39 off 74 including five fours and a six. Batting as the last specialist batsman, Markram’s dismissal left the hope of a win as well as a draw too. However, Jadeja dismissed Vernon Philander (0) and Keshav Maharaj (0) in the same over.
Having dismissed Elgar yesterday, Jadeja has now picked four wickets already in this innings. However, he needs only one wicket to register his 10th five-wicket haul. Chasing a 395-run target, South Africa have lost their nine wickets for 190 at the time of writing this article.
