Watch : Ravindra Jadeja’s sword play celebration after scoring fifty, post comeback goes viral

Ravindra Jadeja

After a protracted injury absence, Ravindra Jadeja has made an excellent comeback for the Indian squad. Before reaching his 18th half-century on Day 2 of the first Test against Australia in Nagpur on Friday, the all-arounder picked up his 11th five-wicket haul in Tests on Thursday against Australia.

“It was a challenging period because I had missed a lot of cricket during the previous five months and significant competitions (Asia Cup and World T20). For athletes, recovery is difficult, and maintaining performance levels after recovery is even harder. You need that self-assurance since there are always questions about whether or not your performance will recover from an injury “On Thursday, he stated.

On Friday, Jadeja celebrated his fifty-run game with his signature “sword-play” with the bat. Following the star’s flawless comeback to international cricket, fans on twitter were pleased.

In the first game of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, India’s skipper Rohit Sharma produced one of his most spectacular Test hundreds under duress against a strong Australian attack as India jumped out to a significant 144-run lead in the opening match after finishing day two at 321 for 7. Rohit (120), who played with the utmost poise and polish, made history by becoming the first Indian skipper to reach a century in all three forms.

While Ravindra Jadeja’s (18th half-century, 66 not out) 18th Test half-century is equally precious, Rohit’s ninth Test hundred is worth its weight in gold. The all-hit rounder’s will be just as significant in the overall context of the game.
