IND vs SL 2022: ‘Sri Lanka follows Ravindra Jadeja in one fell swoop!’ – Fans troll visitors after mind-boggling collapse


Ravindra Jadeja continued her dream run in the first Test against Sri Lanka at Mohali.

After scoring a fabulous 175* in the opening innings, the 33-year-old also stood out with the ball, collecting 5-41 as the visitors were knocked out for 174 in response to India’s declared mammoth 574-8. In the process, Jadeja became the first player in nearly five decades to score 150 and take a five for in the same test.

On a field still considered good for the stick, Sri Lanka did not know how to apply, especially against Jadeja. With the visitors trailing by a whopping 400 runs, they were urged to follow by India captain Rohit Sharma.

Fans on Twitter praised Jadeja for her fabulous overall performance. Some also took the opportunity to look into the visitors’ poor batting performance.

Here are some of the reactions:

175* runs with bat and 5 wickets with ball – Team India rock star Ravi Jadeja – best ever.

Only 4 players in the history of the test have a score of 175+ and a run of five wickets in the same test. & 5/56 Vinoo Mankad (1952): 184 & 5/196#INDvSL #RavindraJadeja𓃵

175* with the ball. A fife (5/41) now for Ravindra Jadeja. From the news that was doing the rounds “that he will retire from Test cricket”. Here he is in Mohali making a statement!#INDvSL

Sir Jadeja can’t be wrong, a fife after scoring 175 points. What’s left, jaddu.

Sir Ravindra Jadeja, 100 and five in the same game. 100th of Virat: Test of Sir Jadeja#INDvsSL #INDvSL

India has mandated tracking. What a collapse. Lost the last six wickets for 13 runs. It could be everywhere today. Reminders of Sri Lanka’s disastrous tour of India in 1994.

Murali Karthik “What does Sri Lanka think now?” Russell Arnold “Lunch, what else?” First smile on my face since 7pm yesterday.#INDvSL

A statistic for you, @daniel86cricket!Jasprit Bumrah finished with numbers of 2/36 in dedication to India’s 36. Also, did you know this was Sri Lanka’s 36th attempt with the bat in India and they went all out for 174.

Lol, Sri Lanka. Bowled for 174 in response to 574

Ravindra Jadeja’s full show puts India in charge to win first Test

Hitting first, India scored a gigantic 574-8 declared in their first set, thanks to a sensational 175* from Ravindra Jadeja. Rishabh Pant, Ravichandran Ashwin and Hanuma Vihari scored 50 seconds. Before the end of play on Day 2, India had Sri Lanka on the ropes, taking four wickets.

The visitors got off to a strong start on Day 3, with Charith Asalanka and Pathum Nissanka forging a partnership of 58 runs. However, Jasprit Bumrah trapped Asalanka in front to give India a key breakthrough. Jadeja then entered the scene with the wickets of Niroshan Dickwella and Suranga Lakmal in the same over.

With Sri Lanka’s tail exposed, Mohammed Shami was brought on the attack to eliminate Lasith Embuldeniya. Jadeja then capped off a sensational performance by picking up the last two Sri Lankan wickets, earning a well-deserved fife.

Afterwards, Sri Lanka reached lunchtime on 10-1 as they struggled to avoid a heavy set defeat.
