IND vs SA: Watch – Ravindra Jadeja Rattles David Miller’s Stumps

India National Cricket Team left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja destroyed the sticks of the South Africa National Cricket Team batsman David Miller during the 37th match of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 on Sunday, November 5, at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.

Indian bowling unit was at its dominant best in the match against the Proteas and they bundled out the opposition for a low score. South Africa have been the most dominant batting team in the ongoing edition of the ICC Cricket World Cup, but they weren’t able to deal with the threat of the most dangerous bowling team, India.

After the top-order of South Africa was back in the pavilion, explosive batsman David Miller came in the middle and he had to take up the responsibility to bail the side out of trouble, which he failed to do.

Miller was bamboozled by a good Jadeja delivery on the third ball of the 17th over, and he was back in the hut after scoring 11 runs off 11 balls, including 2 fours.

Jadeja bowled a back-of-a-length ball around off-stump and Miller moved across the stumps, missed his shot completely, and saw his stumps getting rattled.

In the end, South Africa were bundled out for 83 in 27.1 overs and India registered a comprehensive 243-run victory. This was India’s 8th win on the trot in the ongoing edition of the World Cup.

Speaking after the win, captain Rohit Sharma said that adapting better to the conditions was the reason behind their success. He said:

“If you look at how we have played in the last three games, we have adapted better. We were put under pressure against England. But we got a decent score and then the seamers did the job. We lost a wicket in the first over. Then got runs and then the seamers did well.”

Rohit Sharma further spoke about the performances of Mohammed Shami, Virat Kohli, and Shreyas Iyer who played a key role in India’s win. He said:

“We needed Kohli to go out there and play the situation. We then knew we had to keep it in the right areas and let the pitch do the rest. [on Shreyas Iyer] Even if the faith hadn’t been repaid, I would have still stuck to them. We need to keep the trust. It can’t be done every day.

“For Shami to come back the way he has, shows the mindset. The last two games has shown what Iyer is capable of. Gill and myself have been batting together for a majority of time now. We let the instincts take over. We don’t preplan anything. We just assess and play accordingly.”
