Watch: Ravindra Jadeja Runs Out Ross Taylor With An Unbelievable Throw
Ravindra Jadeja just cannot be kept out of action when he is on the field. It does not matter whether he is batting, bowling, fielding in close range or near the boundary ropes, the allrounder always remain in the thick of things. Well, it did not take him long to make his presence felt when the first semifinal between India and New Zealand resumed on the reserve day.
Ravindra Jadeja pulled off a sensational run out to dismiss a well-settled Ross Taylor. Taylor and Tom Latham started well, collecting 16 runs from the first ten balls after starting the day on 211 for 5. However, before Taylor could score more runs, Ravindra Jadeja cut short his knock with a stunning piece of throw.

On the final ball of the 47th over, Taylor tucked a delivery from Jasprit Bumrah towards deep square leg. Jadeja came charging in from near the boundary and picked up the ball cleanly. In the meantime, Taylor and Latham decided to take a double. But before Taylor could get inside the crease safely, Ravindra Jadeja incredibly hit the stumps with a bullet of a throw.
Talking about the match, New Zealand finished their innings on a challenging 239 for 8 in the allotted 50 overs. They started the day on 211 for 3 and had to face 23 more balls. But while they tried to go for the big shots, they managed just one boundary and thus collected 28 runs from 23 balls. India will now be hoping to chase down the total and book their place in the final.
The winner of the clash will take on the winner of the second semifinal between England and Australia. The final will take place on Sunday at Lord’s.
