Ravindra Jadeja’s five-wicket haul helps India bundle out Australia for just 177 guns in the first innings
India and Australia are currently locking horns in the first Test of the four-match series in Nagpur. The visitors won the toss and decided to bat first. However, it wasn’t a fruitful start for them as Indian pacers Mohammed Siraj and Mohammad Shami bowled impeccable lines and lengths to send Usman Khawaja (1) and David Warner (1) respectively packing for just 2 runs.
But after that Steve Smith (37) and Marnus Labuschagne (49) were highly impressive as they steadied the ship and made sure that they build good platforms. They stitched a century stand and both look settled at the crease.
But after that, it was all about Ravindra Jadeja as he struck post-lunch and the visitors slipped from 84/2 to 109/5. The all-rounder removed Labuschagne and Smith with a peach of deliveries and then continued his carnage on the other batters.
Jadeja removed the likes of Matt Renshaw (0), Peter Handscomb (31) and Todd Murphy (0) to complete his 11th five-wicket haul in Test cricket. He was complimented well by his partner in crime R Ashwin, who took three wickets and helped his side wrap up the opposition for just 177 runs.

My player of the series: Mr. Jaddu.
We missed him alot in WC 2022. If batting fails he bcan bat up the order. If bowling fails, he can take wickets. and most importantly, India's problem from recent times is fielding a gun fielding India and CSK's Jaddu

This should be the example for players making comebacks in indian team, that playing domestic match before an international game is very necessary.

Ravindra Jadeja went through a serious knee surgery in September due to which he missed the Asia Cup 2022 and T20 World Cup 2022.
Questions were raised about his place in the Indian team as many players emerged as his replacement.
He bagged a fifer in his first comeback match. pic.twitter.com/f6gUIdOwbvAdvertisement
