Ravindra Jadeja's score of 21 in the second ODI against Australia at the VCA Stadium, Nagpur put him on an elite list of all-rounders who scored 2000 runs and accounted for 150 dismissal in ODIs. The Saurashtra all-rounder ranks alongside India's cricketing legends Sachin Tendulkar and Kapil Dev on the list.

Jadeja reached 150 wickets in ODIs when he dismissed England's Sam Billings at the Eden Gardens, Kolkata in January 2017. The left-hander, who was on 1,990 ODI runs before the match on Wednesday, reached the 2000-run mark when he nicked a single off Glenn Maxwell in the 41st over.

Tendulkar, who has played 463 ODIs -- more than any player in the history -- scored 18,426 runs and took 154 wickets in his glittering career.

Kapil Dev, who led the country to World Cup glory in 1983, played 225 ODI matches in which he scored 3783 runs and has 253 wickets to his name.
