IND vs AUS, 2nd Test: Australia’s preparation was for Ashwin and Jadeja, Lanka Shami engaged
This happened for the first time since 2002.
Before Ravindra Jadeja, Shoaib Akhtar did this in Tests. Rawalpindi Express clean bowled 5 batsmen in an innings in the Lahore Test against New Zealand in 2002. Since then, no bowler could repeat this feat till now. The inclusion of world’s fastest bowler Shoaib Akhtar in this special list is a very special thing, because the name of great Anil Kumble is also there in this list.
Jadeja second spinner after Kumble in last 50 years
The record of hunting 5 or more batsmen clean bowled in a single innings was only in the name of Anil Kumble as a spinner in the last 50 years. Now after him Ravindra Jadeja has also achieved this special achievement in his name. Kumble clean bowled 5 batsmen against South Africa in Joburg in 1992.
