Jadeja silences critics with a superb ton and place in history book –

Ahead of the match, there were possible calls of Jadeja being axed from the Playing XI. However, the team management showed faith in him and Jadeja too repaid that with a superb hundred. When he crossed the 104-run mark, he joined the honours list of Indian players to achieve the rear feat of 2500 runs and 200 wickets.

On the fourth ball of the 82nd over, Jadeja scored a single ofd Stuart Broad’s bowling to achieve the feat. Interestingly, Jadeja has kept out R Ashwin from the team to be part of the Edgbaston Test, who is one of the principal members of the honours list. But with his ability to bat and bowl and contribute to the fielding, he has clearly justified his selection in the team.
