After becoming the fastest left-arm bowler to claim 200 Test wickets on Friday, Ravindra Jadeja took a stunning return catch to leave the South African opener Aiden Markram stunned on the fifth and final day of the first Test match on Sunday.
It all happened on the very first ball of the 27th over. Markram came out of his crease to play an aerial shot, the Indian all-rounder flew towards his left and grabbed the ball out of thin air to remove the right-hander.
That Jadeja caught and bowled is pretty ridiculous. He actually ended up making it look really easy but it's a hell of a grab. pic.twitter.com/G0lJwTHbol

Later in the same over, Jadeja trapped Vernon Philander and Keshav Maharaj in front of the stumps off successive deliveries, fourth and fifth, to dismiss them for ducks.
Meanwhile, India registered its third-biggest win against South Africa at home by runs after defeating the visitors by 203 runs in Vizag to take 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
South Africa was bundled out for 191 chasing the target of 395.
