Ravindra Jadeja joins elite list with six sixes in an over

first_imgRavindra Jadeja joined an elite list on Friday after he smashed Yuvraj Singh-like six sixes in an inter-district T20 tournament in Rajkot.Jadeja lit the inaugural edition of the Saurashtra Cricket Association (SCA) tournament while playing for Jamnagar when he hit all the six deliveries of an over out of the park.Jadeja notched up a blistering 69-ball 154 at the Saurashtra Cricket Association ‘B’ ground to help Jamnagar register a 121-run victory over Amreli.After hitting a total of 15 fours and 10 sixes in his spectacular knock, Jadeja was run out in the 19th over.With the help of Jadeja’s knock, Jamnagar posted a mammoth total of 239/6 batting first.The victory earned Jamnagar four points. The tournament features sixteen teams divided into four groups.Jamnagar are slated to play their next game against Botad on Saturday.Jadeja was last seen playing for India in the Test series against Sri Lanka, where he finished with 10 wickets in three matches.Jadeja starred with the ball in the third Test at the Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi where he took two wickets in the first innings and three in the second.Jadeja was also in the centre of a hilarious incident in Delhi where the Saurashtra bowler appealed loudly for a bowled wicket until his teammates told him that the bails had come out.Jadeja fired one in at at 93kmph around off-stump and Suranga Lakmal looked to keep it out but was too late getting his bat down. He ended up getting a bottom edge and the ball pegged the off-stump back.advertisementJadeja, much to the amusement of his teammates went up in appeal for something and the on-air commentators, also obviously amused said, ‘You don’t appeal for a clean bowled, Mr. Jadeja’.However, Jadeja realised he had got his man after the close-in fielders pointed at the timber.After the end of the day, Kohli had a good laugh as the players walked off even as Jadeja tried to explain what confused him. Cheteshwar Pujara and a few of the other Indians also joined in and it looked like Jadeja was in for some serious needling from his buddies in the dressing-room.(With inputs from IANS)last_img
