Star India National Cricket Team all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was dismissed by England National Cricket Team captain Ben Stokes after lunch on Day 4 of the fifth and final Test match, which is being played at the Edgbaston, Birmingham.
All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was in top form with the bat in the first innings of the match. He had a terrific 222-run partnership with Rishabh Pant on Day 1 after India were reduced to 98/5 by the opposition.
On Day 2, Jadeja smashed his third century in Test cricket and scored 104 runs off 194 balls, including 13 fours, before being dismissed by veteran pacer James Anderson.
In India’s second innings, Jadeja came out to bat after the dismissal of Shreyas Iyer, who once again lost his wicket to a short ball. The star all-rounder got no support from the other end as Rishabh Pant and Shardul Thakur got dismissed before lunch.
England captain Stokes looked dominant with the ball after lunch and he picked the wickets of Mohammed Shami, Ravindra Jadeja and Jasprit Bumrah.
Stokes dismissed Jadeja on the second ball of the 78th over of the innings. The England captain bowled a short-length delivery that shaped back in viciously and the Indian all-rounder Jadeja attempted a cut shot, which he missed completely, and the ball crashed into the stumps.
