Ravindra Jadeja’s inclusion in this Indian line-up over the number two bowler in the world Ravichandran Ashwin has been a topic of much contention in recent days. However, on day five at the Oval the left-arm spinner had the opportunity to justify his selection. He began to do so just after lunch as he dismissed England opener Haseeb Hameed for 63 to leave the hosts 141/3 chasing 368. It gave the tourists the upper hand in a game that is still relatively open given the flat nature of the pitch.
A good ball to end an impressive innings.
