Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who has been recalled by the Indian selectors for the upcoming four-match Test series against South Africa, has claimed yet another five-wicket haul in the ongoing Ranji Trophy season.
The 26-year-old, who picked 24 wickets in the last four innings against Jharkhand and Tripura respectively, has put another match-winning performance for Saurashtra against Hyderabad, as he picked six wickets for 75 runs in the first innings and followed it with 7/60 in the second innings on Friday.
Batting first, Saurashtra scored a meagre total of 102 runs in the first innings after which they bowled out Hyderabad for 148 runs conceding a lead of 46. In their second innings, the Jaydev Shah-led side scored 210 runs giving Hyderabad 164 runs to win. The paltry total proved to be a herculean task for Hyderabad, as Jadeja rattled them with another magical spell.
Jadeja’s spells in last six innings:
7/60 against Hyderabad in second innings
6/75 in 21 overs against Hyderabad in first innings
7/55 in 25 overs against Jharkhand in second innings
6/71 in 19.5 overs against Jharkhand in first innings
6/27 in 27.3 overs against Tripura in first innings
5/45 in 25 overs against Tripura in second innings
