WATCH: Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja’s bonding to dismiss Steve Smith

185

In the 2nd ODI between India and Australia which was played at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata, Indian set a respectable total of 253 for the visitors.

When the Aussies came out to bat, at one point it seemed they would run away with the game as their captain Steve Smith was batting sensibly, having just cracked a half-century in his 100th ODI.

However, their chances were dented after Hardik Pandya came to bowl a new spell and sent a short one to Smith. The batsman did not expect it and tried to pull it over mid-wicket for six. However, since the bat only found his top-edge, it went straight down Ravindra Jadeja‘s throat and he completed an excellent catch.

Jadeja was not in the playing XI; he replaced Kedar Jadhav just one over before and changed the match with a spectacular catch.

Virat Kohli, Steve Smith

Indian skipper Virat Kohli got pumped up after Smith’s wicket as he knew that the Aussie captain was the only hope for the Kangaroos.
