Yuzvendra Chahal pokes fun at Kedar Jadhav’s bowling action

Indian spinners were clinical in their performance during the first ODI against South Africa in Durban as Team India beat the hosts by six wickets to take a 1-0 lead in the 6 match series.

While the wrist spin duo of Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav took five wickets between them and gave away just 79 runs in 20 overs, part-timer Kedar Jadhav too chipped in with three overs giving away 19 runs for no wicket. Nonetheless, the bowling did their job as they restricted Proteas on a sub-par score of 269/8 in 50 overs.


After the match, wishes poured in for the Indian team as they put up a stellar show to win an ODI in South Africa after long seven years and Kedar Jadhav too praised the top performers but Chahal took a subtle dig at him for his unique bowling action.

“Rolled my arm over in our win against South Africa yesterday! I love bowling in the middle overs. Great spells from @yuzi_chahal & @imkuldeep18! And excellent knocks from @imVkohli and @ajinkyarahane88 to go 1-0 up.. Good start to the series!” tweeted Jadhav with a picture of him bowling during the match.


Chahal shot back with a cheeky reply, “Rolled your arm under not over Kedar bhaiyaaaa let’s keep this momentum going,” he wrote.

Chasing 270 for the victory, India captain Virat Kohli hit his 33rd ODI century, which is his 1st on the Proteas land and stitched up a 189-run partnership in 30.2 overs with Ajinkya Rahane, who also scored 79 runs on the way to his fifth consecutive fifty in the 50 over format.

Already 1-0 up in the series, India will now take South Africa in the second ODI on February 4 at Centurion.
