India vs Australia 2019: Rohit Sharma and Kedar Jadhav Chills Out Ahead of 3rd ODI in Ranchi
Team India opener Rohit Sharma and Kedar Jadhav were seen enjoying their time in the flight as he flew to Ranchi for the 3rd ODI against Australia. The duo posed for a selfie where the two cricketers were chilling out with a refreshing drink. Taking to his Instagram handle, Rohit Sharma shared the picture with a caption, “ Race 4 coming soon,”
Rohit Sharma and Kedar Jadhav are integral members of the Indian limited-overs side
Both Rohit Sharma and Kedar Jadhav is an integral part of the Indian limited overs team. Rohit Sharma is one of the finest ODI batsmen in the world and his record in the recent past goes onto prove why he is one of the most feared batsmen in world cricket at the moment. However in the ongoing series so far, Rohit hasn’t managed to get the runs under his belt. But with Rohit Sharma, a marathon innings is just around the corner and we might well witness his magic in the Ranchi ODI.
Kedar Jadhav over the last couple of years has evolved as a player. His dynamic batting skills and uncanny bowling action makes him a lethal cog in the Indian middle order. He hardly concedes too many runs in his quota of overs with his below sea level deliveries as Sunil Gavaskar jokingly says. During the 1st ODI, it was his great knock of 81 runs which ensured India won the 1st match by 6 wickets. He shared an unbeaten 142 runs stand with MS Dhoni.
There is no doubt about the fact that Kedar Jadhav has already booked his spot in the 2019 World Cup. However, he is an injury prone cricketer and should look to concentrate more on his fitness ahead of the quadrennial event.
India lead the 5 match series 2-0
Currently, the hosts lead the 5 match series 2-0 and will look to seal the series in Ranchi. Australia had a chance to win both the matches. However, India held their nerves in crucial junctures of the game and returned triumphant. The experience showed in their approach while batting in the 1st ODI.
In the 2nd ODI, it was the bowlers who helped India defend a relatively modest score of 250 runs. Vijay Shankar bowled a sensational final over to hand India a narrow 8 runs victory.
