New Delhi. Australia has trailed 2-0 in the Border Gavaskar Trophy. The Kangaroo team has faced a crushing defeat by 6 wickets in the Delhi Test. Now returning to the series for the visiting team is no less than an ordeal. Team’s star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja again broke down on Australia in the second Test. In Nagpur, he first showed his trailer to the guests and then made the entire picture in Delhi.
Ravindra Jadeja has returned to the team after almost 6 months. But the return is such that it is as if a lion has been sitting in ambush for hunting for 6 months. Jadeja had made everyone crazy with his all-round performance in the very first test after his return. He took a total of 7 wickets in the Nagpur Test and also scored a blistering inning of 70 runs. At the same time, in Delhi, Jadeja sent 3 batters to the pavilion in the first innings while in the second innings he scattered the guests like leaves and took 7 wickets. After seeing this tremendous form of Jadeja after injury, his wife Rivaba has become happy and has tied the bridge of his praise.
Challenging to make a comeback after a serious injury – Rivaba
Regarding her husband’s brilliant performance, Rivaba said, ‘I am very happy that he has performed like this for the country after a long time. When you get a serious injury and have an operation, then it is difficult for a player to make such a comeback. For someone to return physically and mentally within 4 months is no less than a challenge. Because the player does not know his position. But I am happy for them. He is very good and his first priority is cricket.
Player of the match won in both tests
The star all-rounder has won the title of Player of the Match in both the Tests after his dangerous performance. Now he has a total of 4 man of the match in the Border Gavaskar series. In this case, master blaster Sachin Tendulkar is on top, who has won this title a total of 5 times in this series. The third match of the series between the two teams will be held in Indore from March 1. Now it has to be seen whether Jadeja is able to match the master blaster in this series or not.
