The Mohali Test was a special one for Ravindra Jadeja, who scored an unbeaten 175 runs and took 9 wickets to take India to a memorable win by an innings and 222 runs.
Former England captain Michael Vaughan heaped massive praise on India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja for his exceptional performance against Sri Lanka while recalling Aussie cricket legend Shane Warne, who passed away on Friday.
Warne, who died of a suspected heart attack in Thailand, played a prominent role in Ravindra Jadeja’s career and gave him the title Rockstar.
His Mohali Test performance is a fitting tribute to the legendary cricketer.
“The ‘Rockstar’ as Warney named him is having some game in his memory … Fantastic @imjadeja #INDvSL,” tweeted Vaughan.
Jadeja’s 175 is the highest score ever by an Indian batter at No.7 in Tests as he surpassed Kapil Dev’s 1986 landmark.
Jadeja created a new Test record of being the only player to score 150+ plus and pick nine wickets in a match.
