Ravidra Jadeja Broke Kapil Dev’s Record With His Century In First Test

Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja set a double record on the same day. He broke Kapil Dev’s 36-year-old record with a mammoth century in the first innings of the first Test against Sri Lanka in Mohali. He went down to bat at number seven in the Tests for India and scored the highest runs in an innings. After losing five wickets, a pair of three centuries is for India. Jaddu was in all three pairs.

Jadeja remained unbeaten on 175 in the first innings in Mohali. He hit 16 fours and three huge sixes in the innings. Earlier, in 1986, against Sri Lanka, India’s World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev had scored 163 runs at number seven in the Tests. Jadeja broke that record.

Rishabh Pant is at number three on this list. He batted at number seven against Australia in 2019 and scored 159 runs. In Mohali, too, Panther lost hundreds for just four runs.

After losing five wickets in Mohali, India have a pair of three centuries. This record is also the first time for India. Jadeja was in all three pairs. The first is between Panth and Jadeja. They scored 104 runs together. On his next wicket, Jadeja added 130 runs with Ravichandran Ashwin. Jaddu scored 103 runs for the ninth wicket with Mohammad Shamir. Shami scored only 20 runs.

In the manner of a Rajput warrior on horseback, Ravindra Jadeja smashed the Sri Lankan bowling attack with a sword. India’s scoreboard seems to be running on horsepower. None of Dimuth Karunaratna’s plans worked. Jadeja, the best all-rounder in Indian cricket at the moment, played a remarkable innings to take the team’s run to the heights of the mountains.

Just days after the death of legendary leg-spinner Shane Warne, an impeccable innings came from Jadeja’s bat. At the same time, ‘Sir Jadeja’ did two things.

First, former captain Virat Kohli’s 100th Test took the team to a point where it is unbelievable not to win. Second, the former Rajasthan Royals star gave the best tribute to the first Royal Warne.
