VIDEO: Steve Smith shows thumb to Ravindra Jadeja
India-Australia first Test being played in Nagpur
Ravindra Jadeja took 5 wickets in his comeback test
He clean bowled Steve Smith by trapping him in his net
New Delhi. Steve Smith was in amazing form before coming to India tour. He faced a lot of criticism for his game in T20. But in the Big Bash League, hitting two consecutive centuries, Smith stopped everyone’s speech. With this form, he has come on India tour. Steve Smith also showed this on the first day of Nagpur Test. Even though he could not score runs at a fast pace. But from one end, he had made complete preparations for burying the peg. But Ravindra Jadeja became his era in the comeback test.
Jadeja trapped Steve Smith in his maze. First bowled the ball going out continuously and then bowled him with the arm ball coming in fast, hitting all four corners. Before hunting Smith, Ravindra Jadeja dismissed Matt Renshaw Handscomb for Golden Duck and Marnus Labushen. Steve Smith batted 107 balls. That is, he came down with the intention of playing a long innings. But, Jadeja also trapped Smith in his trap. He kept on turning the ball outside off from the line of off stump and Smith kept defending this type of ball easily. Similarly, when Smith missed playing a ball of Jadeja, he also showed his thumb to praise the bowler.
That when @imjadeja let one through Steve Smith’s defence!
