Former cricketer Ravi Shastri and former Australia cricketer Matthew Hayden put themselves in an uncomfortable position when three cricketers took to the topic in praising India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja.
On the second day of the first Test played on Friday, February 10, 2023, Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel hit brilliant fifties that gave India a 144-run lead in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Ravi Shastri sheds light in a diplomatic manner.
The sight of Ravindra Jadeja was spectacular in the first two days of the opening Test. He completely bowled the Australian batsmen in the first innings. With the bat, Ravindra Jadeja scored crucial runs for the team as India stabilized the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and continued to extend the lead.
Very impressed with Jadeja’s performance. In the process, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was dubbed a three-dimensional cricketer. Commented by fellow commentator and former Indian cricketer Dinesh Karthik sitting next to him. This thing interested Hayden a lot.
Dinesh Karthik decided to play down the situation and blamed Ravi Shastri. Ravi Shastri can throw light on it. To which he laughed. Hayden said I don’t think I have ever seen Ravi Shastri.
Ravi Shastri, known for his sophisticated manner, responded immediately. Nice when a player gets picked and the selectors mention that he is a three-dimensional cricketer.
This is what I meant for clarity. That a really brilliant cricketer can perform well with the bat and with the bowling.
India has gained a lead of 224 runs in the current Test. Can Australia still make a comeback? And this Border-Gavaskar can save the trophy.
