Already depleted Windies side lost their ninth wicket when Kedar Jadhav took an excellent catch at the boundary off Ravindra Jadeja. However, earlier in the day, Windies skipper, Jason Holder won the toss and elected to bat first, and the decision made his side go through a lot. India, in the final game, wrapped Windies innings on 104.

Jadhav’s brilliance bagged spotlight

Moreover, the Indian pacer Bhuvneshwar Kumar picked up the early wicket of Kieron Powell. Later, Ravindra Jadeja was the pick of the bowlers who picked up four wickets in the game. Meanwhile, Kedar Jadhav’s efforts on the field surely bagged some spotlight.

However, it was the 32nd over of the Windies’ innings when Ravindra Jadeja bowled his third delivery to Kemar Roach. The fast bowler was looking to open his hands but unfortunately found Kedar at long-off. That was hit flat and hard, but the elevation was missing, and Kedar Jadhav took it by hopping back. It was an excellent catching from Jadhav who pouched his third for the day.
