Ravindra Jadeja runs out Mohammad Mithun: Star India all-rounder makes puts on display a valiant effort to run-out Mithun.
During the final of the Asia Cup between India and Bangladesh at Dubai, India’s all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja aided India in dismissing the fourth Bangladeshi batsmen, courtesy a run-out.
Earlier Rohit Sharma, captain of the Indian team, had won the toss and chose to field. India made a whopping five changes to their playing eleven, bringing back all the players who were rested in the dead-rubber against Afghanistan.
Bangladesh made a lone change to their playing eleven from the match against Pakistan, including Nazmul Islam In place of Momunul Haque.
It happened on the last delivery of the 28th over when Liton Das beautifully drove a Kuldeep Yadav delivery through the covers. With Jadeja fielding at extra cover, he first stopped the bad-bouncing ball by putting in an acrobatic dive to his left. After getting hold of the ball, Jadeja swiftly attempted to throw the ball at the striker’s end.
However, a watchful Jadeja became aware of the situation, ending up throwing the ball to the non-striker’s end. With all this happening, both the batsmen had ended up at the striker’s end. Having played the ball well, it seemed as if Das forgot to respond to his partner in Mohammad Mithun, who ended up scoring 2 (4).
Being reduced from 120-0 to 139-4, Bangladesh had no one but themselves to blame. Apart from Das and his opening partner Mehidy Hasan Miraz, no other batsmen looked no apply himself in the middle.
