Former India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni may not be in Ranchi as India are playing third Test match against Australia here at JSCA International Stadium but Ravindra Jadeja reminded fans of the local lad with a brilliant run out.
Jadeja, who is perhaps the best fielder in the current Indian Test side, effected a brilliant run out in a typical MS Dhoni style.
The left-arm spinner brilliantly collected an off target throw by quickly moving away from his position and threw back-flicked it onto the stumps to get rid of Josh Hazlewood as Steve Smith attempted to convert it into a double.
Jadeja’s quick response helped India bundle out the visitors at 451.

Jadeja was also the pick of the Indian bowlers in the first innings. He completed another five-wicket haul by grabbing four wickets on the second day and was almost unplayable.
He surprised Australian batsmen with his spin and bounce and remained most economical. Jadeja finished with 5/124 and bowled a whopping 49.3 overs in the first innings.
