Ravindra Jadeja is a bindass player. For him, every small victory is a moment to celebrate. Remember his talwarbaazi act with his bat after he scored his maiden Test fifty at Lord’s? Well, he continues to live this ritual. During the Kanpur Test match, we saw him in his usual mode of elation.
India was leading by 400 runs on the fourth day of the first Test match against New Zealand. Kohli had delayed the declaration because Jadeja was on the verge of scoring his second half-century. And just when Jadeja completed his fifty, Kohli called off the play.
While Jadeja was lost in his ‘Swordplay’ celebration after the fifty, Kohli had to signal him again and again to leave the field.
