Ravindra Jadeja’s all-around performance on his international comeback was one of the many highlights for India and the horror for Australia as India won the first Test by innings in Nagpur. On Day 3, Australia’s second innings was finished in less than a session, which allowed India to overcome them by innings and 132 runs.

Jadeja had scores of 5/47 and 2/34 while contributing 70 runs off 185 balls during the Indian innings. It was he who ultimately decided to eject both players, ending what seemed to be a lethal partnership between Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne that had briefly favored Australia. Then, his 88-run combination with Axar Patel was what killed Australia’s hopes.

India reacted admirably, according to Jadeja, despite Australia maybe suffering psychological harm from all the talk about how many spins would be produced by the pitch. India was accused of altering the pitch to their benefit and establishing unfair circumstances by a few former Australian players and some of the country’s media, but in the end, the hosts scored 400 runs, and Australia’s Steve Smith seemed at ease in both of his innings.

“At this moment, one flight has rough areas” (They were probably seeing the rough from the flight itself). They created an environment to make it spin, but it only spun sporadically. They seemed to play more straight balls if we were to look. We were also LBW on straight balls, Jadeja said on Star Sports.

We will surely leverage the strengths of our team, therefore this will undoubtedly happen in India. Why not play to our strength? suggested he. “While our fast bowlers are equally excellent, spinners in India win more matches and take more wickets.
