Kedar Jadhav, the man of the match
Kedar Jadhav, the man of the match, “My bowling is all about reading batsmen’s mind. I have two or three options with the angle. I tried to bowl stump-to-stump. The best part about my bowling is, I don’t think like I’m a bowler, there’s no extra responsibility.”
“I enjoy my bowling. Recently in Australia, we pulled off a similar kind of a chase. I had that in the back of my mind. When you have Mahi Bhai at the other end, you just have to listen to him. I just did that again today.”
Therefore, MS Dhoni and Kedar Jadhav brought India a lead on ODI series against Australia. Hope the visitors will return early on the series, like the t-20.
