    Jadeja becomes the second Indian spinner to take a WC fifer

    Jadeja registers best ODI figures during IND vs SA; Becomes second Indian spinner to take World Cup fifer after Yuvraj

    India’s Ravindra Jadeja becomes only the second Indian spinner after Yuvraj Singh to take a five-wicket-haul in the ODI World Cup during the India-South Africa WC league match at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Sunday.

    India wins by 243 runs

    No one really saw this coming, did we.

    India has just thumped the second-in-table South Africa by 243 runs. It all started with Rohit Sharma who got India off to a flier. Virat Kohli and Shreyas Iyer consolidated from there on, with the latter scoring his 49th ODI hundred, drawing him level with Sachin Tendulkar. Cameos from Suryakumar Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja ensured India finished with a flourish.

    From there on, it was all about the Indian bowlers. Siraj struck the first blow, removing the dangerous Quinton de Kock. Once Shami dismantled the rest of the top-order, Jadeja began his show, ending with a five-wicket haul as Indian secured an eighth consecutive win at the World Cup and seals the top spot in the points table.

    Kuldeep wraps it up

    Kuldeep from around the wicket. Sneaks it past Ngidi’s outside edge and that is it.

  • November 05, 2023 20:25
    Kuldeep strikes!

    Kuldeep with his fifth over. Rabada pushes one to long off to get off the strike.

    Jansen on strike. Slower one from Kuldeep and it holds onto the pitch for a fraction too long. All he can do is chip to Jadeja. Has to be the easiest catch of his career.

    Marco Jansen c Jadeja b Kuldeep Yadav 14 (30b 1x4 0x6)

  • November 05, 2023 20:21

    SA 68/7 in 19 overs

    Jadeja to bowl his sixth over. A single each for Maharaj and Jansen, who decided to go the aggressive route and launches one into the high after stepping. OUT! Bowled him and Maharaj has to go. Again the ball turns away from the right-hander and crashes into off-stump. Another top-class performance by the Indian bowlers and another humiliating defeat for the opposition loading.

  • November 05, 2023 19:58
    SA 65/6 in 18 overs

    Here comes Kuldeep with the ball. Shami has left the field and Ishan Kishan is on for him now. Maharaj misses a cut first ball. Three dot balls later he misses the cut shot again. A quick single to end the over as just one from it.

    SA 42/5 in 14 overs

    Leg-before appeal as van der Dussen misses this ball from Shami that nips in. Umpire turns the appeal down and Shami straight up goes for the review.

  • November 05, 2023 19:28
    SA 40/4 in 13 overs

    Jadeja continues. Three singles off the first ball. Klaasen, batting on 1 off 10, attempts a sweep and misses. Leg-before appeal turned down and Rohit sends it upstairs.

  • November 05, 2023 19:22

  • November 05, 2023 19:18
    SA 36/3 in 11 overs

    Mohammed Shami into the attack. FOUR! Boundary second ball. Punched down the ground, Shami tries to get a hand to it and Siraj misfields at mid-on to allow four runs. FOUR!

Beaten outside off and just a single from the over.

  • November 05, 2023 18:35
    SA 6/1 in 2 overs

    Here comes Siraj. Yorker to start with and de Kock gets an inside edge on his foot and looks in some pain. He is in some discomfort and the physio is out to check on him. This is angling across outside off and de Kock leaves. FOUR! Full and driven down the ground by de Kock for a boundary. OUT! Change of length does the trick for Siraj. Drags his length back on middle and off and de Kock gets an inside edge onto his stumps looking to drive this square of the wicket. Rassie van der Dussen is the new man in. Still two slips in place. He defends the first ball on off-side. Defended back to the bowler to end the over.

  • November 05, 2023 18:30
    SA 2/0 in 1 over

    Bavuma and de Kock will open the batting. If there is a batting line-up in the tournament that can chase this down against India’s bowling attack, it is South Africa’s. Bumrah bowls a good length on leg-stump and de Kock defends on leg-side. Angling across and de Kock gets an outside edge to point as he looks to drive. Pitching outside leg-stump again and de Kock gets something of a leading edge to mid-off. Full toss outside off and de Kock misses. Angling across outside off and de Kock swings and misses and called wide. South Africa is off the mark. This is solidly defended back to Bumrah by de Kock. Outsided edge and this flies for a single at deep third. Just two runs from the first over.

  • November 05, 2023 17:50
    IND 326/5 in 50 overs

    Lungi Ngidi to bowl the last over of the innings. Ngidi starts with a dot ball before bowling a wide. Ngidi to Jadeja, SIX! What a shot! He bent down and cleared the fence over cow corner for a flat six. This will hurt Africa and is hurting now! Lungi pulled his legs and walked out of the field. Marco Jansen will complete the over. Jansen to Jadeja, FOUR! This went like a tracer bullet down the ground for another boundary of the over. Jansen to Jadeja, FOUR! Fuller and this time Jadeja clears the extra cover region for back-to-back boundaries. Kohli finished with a single as India managed 325 after the end of 50 overs. He will carry his bat on 101*.

  • November 05, 2023 17:16
    IND 249/3 in 42 overs

    Tabraiz Shamsi into the attack. He starts with a couple of wides but the second over is turned out to be a front-foot no-ball. Kohli fails to find a connection in the free hit. A weird over comes to an end with so many hits and misses and tonnes of wides.

  • November 05, 2023 17:11
    IND 243/3 in 41 overs

    It seems quite difficult to score runs under light here. Only four runs from Jansen’s over.

  • November 05, 2023 16:28

    Jansen continues. Much better over him to give only three runs from his over.

Short ball and pulled nicely by Iyer to end the over with third boundary. 14 runs off the over.

  • November 05, 2023 16:08
    IND 179/2 in 30 overs

    Shamshi continues, he bowls his sixth over. Shamsi to Iyer, FOUR! Short and down the leg and Iyer swivels to pull it behind square for a boundary to start this over. Attacking cricket from Iyer continues as he steps out to get into the length of the ball and plays a lofted shot over the bowler’s head that seemed to have raced away at the fence but Jansen dives on time and looks like he has saved few runs. Yes, the confirmation comes in as he saves two runs. Three more singles give India nine from the over.

  • November 05, 2023 16:02
    IND 170/2 in 29 overs - Fifty for Kohli

  • November 05, 2023 15:50
    IND 143/2 in 25 overs

  • November 05, 2023 15:47
    IND 141/2 in 24 overs

    Shamsi over the wicket. Wide from him against Shreyas, who goes for an expansive drive. The ball doesn’t bounce as much as he expected. Beaten!

  • November 05, 2023 15:33
    IND 124/2 in 20 overs

    First over of the day for Shamsi. He starts with a wide down the leg side. Another leg side wide follows. He draws a leading edge from Shreyas. But it falls in between mid off and the bowler.

    IND 45/0 in 4 overs

    Back of a length from Jansen. Sits up well for Rohit, who lofts it over the infield on the leg side to add another boundary. Jansen shifts the line to outside the off stump. Rohit still somehow manages to place it to the mid wicket fence.


    Wide from Jansen and Rohit slashes at it. Shamsi at deep third lets go of a tough chance. Early lucky break for India.

    IND 35/0 in 3 overs

    Ngidi errs his length once more. On the pads to Gill, who happily flicks it away for a four.

  • November 05, 2023 14:12
    IND 22/0 in 2 overs

    Jansen with the second over. Over the wicket, pitches one outside the leg stump and moves it away. Edged by Rohit, but it falls beyond the second slip.

    Jansen has a leg slip against Gill. But he goes really wide, gifting a wide four. He overcorrects next ball - delivers a wide on the off side. Full on the off from Jansen and Gill caresses it through covers for his first four of the day. On the pads now and Gill flicks it away for another four. This is an incredibly productive over for India.

    Bavuma at toss

    We would have batted first, but now we need to chase, which will be a nice challenge. We know that’s one area where we need to gain more confidence, we’ll have to bat with responsibility. One change - Shamsi comes in place of Gerald Coetzee.

  • November 05, 2023 13:41
    Rohit at toss

    We will bat first, it looks like a good pitch, it wasn’t to do with the pitch, we wanted to challenge ourselves. I love to play over here, not just me, the entire team looks forward to playing at this historic ground. We’re playing the same team, don’t think we need to change anything with the way we’ve been playing.
