WATCH: Ravindra Jadeja roars at Rajkot with maiden Test century

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja scored his maiden century on Friday as India took complete control of the Rajkot Test on Day 2.

Jadeja reached the landmark off the fourth ball in the 150th over, bowled by Kraigg Brathwaite. He remained unbeaten on 100, after facing 132 balls. His superb knock was laced with five fours and five sixes.

After completing his ton, the Saurashtra player looked upwards and ran with hands spread out.

Jadeja’s best celebration happened earlier in the day when he reached his half-century.

Every time Jadeja reaches the fifty-run mark, he does a special sword celebration. Hailing from a Rajpur family, the sword celebration is a key element in their celebrations and hence Jadeja has been doing so.

Meanwhile, India declared a ball after Jadeja reached century at 649/9. At stumps, Windies were left at 94/6 struggling against the Indian bowling attack.
