India vs Australia 2nd ODI: Dhoni quick as a wink, Jadeja on fire in Adelaide heat

first_imgAustralia vs India, 2nd ODIFull ScorecardBrief Scores: Australia 214/5 in 41 overs (Shaun Marsh 100*, Glenn Maxwell 12*) vs IndiaRavindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni were in the thick of two inspired moments from the Indian team that led to two Australian wickets even as Shaun Marsh powered on from the other end of the Australian spectrum.Jadeja inflicted a run out while Dhoni produced a special stumping behind the stumps as India contested Australia in the second ODI at Adelaide Oval on Tuesday.Jadeja’s exemplary fielding abilities came to the fore once again in the 19th over of the first innings and just when Usman Khawaja was just beginning to settle along with Shaun Marsh, Jadeja sent him packing.Khawaja played a Kuldeep delivery towards the point region and tried to go for a single but Marsh denied. Jadeja was behind the ball in a jiffy and made a one-handed pickup and shot it straight at stumps. Khawaja fell just short of the crease and had to depart.This is a grouse piece of fielding.#AUSvIND | @bet365_aus pic.twitter.com/FyxkFy62Pgcricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 15, 2019Post Khawaja’s dismissal, Marsh took even more onus on himself to score big runs and played the Indian bowlers excellently. Peter Handscomb at the other end was playing a perfect partner, negotiating the deliveries well.In the 28th over of the innings, Jadeja bowled one outside off-stump and Handscomb tried to go for a slog-sweep for the first time since arriving at the crease but failed to connect with the ball.advertisementWhile going for a bat swing, his foot came just outside the crease and MS Dhoni delivered a special. Dhoni collected the ball immediately and before Handscomb could realise, he had been stumped.Dhoni went for the appeal and even before the confirmation, Handscomb had begun walking back towards the pavilion.STUMPED! Lightning fast hands as always from Dhoni and Handscomb has to go for 20. Jadeja has his first.Australia 4-134 (27.2) #AUSvIND https://t.co/3fNQjC4Hmhcricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) January 15, 2019The former India captain is famous for his lightning quick glove-work and is the third most successful wicketkeeper behind Kumar Sangakkara (482) and Adam Gilchrist (472) in the format with 426 dismissals.But he is head and shoulders above the rest in the stumpings tally with 116 while Sangakkara (73) is second ahead of Romesh Kaluwitharana (75).While all the other Australian batsmen are having to work really hard against the Indian bowlers, Shaun Marsh was the one who timed the ball extremely well and kept the Australian innings going.Australia lead the three-match series 1-0 and a win in Adelaide would guarantee them the trophy.Also Read | India vs Australia: Mohammed Siraj becomes 225th ODI player for IndiaAlso Read | India vs Australia Live Score, 2nd ODI in Adelaidelast_img read more
