Jadeja once again proves to be a game-changer as he takes a spectacular catch to dismiss Labuschagne off Kuldeep Yadav’s bowling. The ball was shorter in length and spinning in around off, tempting Labuschagne to cut it against the spin.
However, he could only manage a thick outside edge. But Jadeja stationed at short third man dove to his right and caught the ball with both hands, stunning everyone with his exceptional fielding skills. This was a crucial wicket for India, and the catch adds to Jadeja’s contribution to the team’s performance.
Earlier, The Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai is hosting the first match of the ODI series between India and Australia. Rohit Sharma, the regular captain of India, is not playing in this match, and thus, Hardik Pandya is leading the team. Having won the toss, Pandya has opted to bowl first.
On the other hand, due to regular captain Pat Cummins’ absence, Steven Smith will be leading the Australian team in this ODI series after the Test series. It should be noted that the Indian team recently achieved a magnificent 2-1 victory in the Test series.
In the first ODI match being played, Australia had a very poor start. On the last ball of the second over, the number one ODI bowler, Mohammed Siraj, bowled Travis Head to show him the way back to the pavilion.
