Ravindra Jadeja 2nd Indian Player To Complete International Double Of 5000 Runs And 500 Wickets

During Wednesday's opening day of the third Border Gavaskar Trophy Test match at Holkar Stadium in Indore, legendary Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja wrote history (March 1). The 34-year-old all-rounder completed a double of 500 wickets and 5000 runs for India, becoming just the second Indian to do it, following World Cup-winning icon Kapil Dev. Jadeja completed the double of 5000 runs and 500 wickets after dismissing Australian batsman Travis Head on the fourth delivery of his first over, giving him 500 wickets in international cricket. It adds to Jadeja's collection of decorations. The talented all-rounder has been on fire for India against Australia in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Jadeja has participated in 64 T20Is, 171 ODIs, and 63 tests for India. which he's currently scored 2623, 2447, and 457 runs in, respectively. On day one of the third Test on Wednesday, Australia knocked India out for 109 as left-arm spinner Matthew Kuhnemman recorded his maiden five-wicket haul. India chose to bat, but their aggressive strategy on a wicket with a sharp turn led to their loss in 33.2 overs. As the previous two Tests, it was anticipated that the surface would offer lots of spin, but the ball going square throughout the opening hour of play and the occasional one sticking low caught everyone off guard. Virat Kohli, who took over for the struggling KL Rahul, scored the most points for India with 22 from 52 balls, while opener Shubhman Gill added 21. India could only add 25 runs to their total with Kuhnemann (5/16), who played only his second Test and finished with career-best first-class stats after losing seven batsmen before the conclusion of the first session. India would have had difficulty surpassing the 100-run mark without Umesh Yadav's 17 from 13 balls. He finished with a few sixes and fours by skillfully using the slog sweep.
