Christchurch: Indian all-rounder and one of the exceptional fielders in the world cricket, Ravindra Jadeja once again stunned the cricketing world by grabbing a screamer to dismiss New Zealand’s Neil Wagner in the second Test on Day two.
Jadeja took a one-handed stunner at deep square-leg to end the ninth-wicket partnership of 51 runs between Kyle Jamieson and Neil Wagner just before the tea.
Sir Jadeja for a reason!

Jadeja himself didn’t know that the ball will come towards him.” I expected that Wagner will play at the deep-square leg but I didn’t expect that it will come at such a fast pace,” he said after the day’s play.
“It came so swiftly with the wind and I just stuck my hand out and I didn’t even realize when I took the catch,” he added.
It must be noted that India is struggling at 90/6 in the second innings after dismissing New Zealand for 235. On Day 1, India were bowled out for 242 after NZ decided to bowl first.
