Watch: Jadeja takes a fine catch despite collision with Gill
New Delhi : India is playing second Test match against Australia and the visitors will be trying all their efforts to win the game after defeat in the first match. Dedication to win the game can be seen from Jadeja's catch from the first day of the game.
Jadeja pulled off a fine running catch off Ravichandran Ashwin's bowling to send Matthew Wade back to the pavilion. In the 13th over, Wade played a lofeted shot on Ashwin's ball; Shubman Gill and Jadeja both went charging for the catch and bumped into each other, but fortunately for India, Jadeja managed to hold on to the catch.
Cricket Australia shared the video on Twitter and captioned it as "Almost disaster! But Jadeja held his ground and held the catch!"
Earlier on Day 1, Australia skipper Tim Paine won the toss and opted to bat at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
