Ravindra Jadeja’s batting performance was overshadowed by Rishabh Pant’s record-breaking 146-ball knock and Jasprit Bumrah’s uncommon all-around excellence. However, the all-rounder, who was making his return from the Chennai Super Kings leadership controversy, was instrumental in India scoring 416 runs in the first innings against England in the Edgbaston Test. Jadeja struck his third Test century while well assisted by Pant as the sixth-wicket partnership set a record 222-run stand. Following the knock on Saturday, Jadeja responded angrily to James Anderson’s remark about his batting, evoking the heated 2014 series feud. (Live Score, India versus England, 5th Test Day 3)

After Day 2 after Jadeja’s 104-run knock and Bumrah’s batting achievement enabled India to finish with a large total, “He used to come in at 8, the bat with the tail, and risk his arm a little bit, but now at 7, he can bat like a true hitter.” He departs well and makes things tough for us.

When questioned about Anderson’s remark at the post-match press conference, Jadeja brought up the 2014 incident. “When you score runs, everyone claims they consider themselves to be a proper hitter.” But I’ve always tried to give myself time at the crease, to form a relationship with whoever is there, and to play alongside him. It’s great that Anderson has realized that after 2014, “he said.”

The quarrel began in the first Test of the 2014 series, which is largely known as Virat Kohli’s disastrous tour to England, and continued in the second when Anderson and Jadeja were spotted in a furious exchange of words as the two sides made their way back to the pavilion for lunch. But what truly happened occurred in the hallway going to the appropriate dressing room, the specifics of which are yet unknown.
