Ravindra Jadeja Breaks Silence on Virat Kohli One-Handed Catch During 1st ODI | WATCH
Barbados: Ravindra Jadeja is arguably one of the weightier fielder in the world currently. He is usually the one who takes sunny catches of other’s bowling, but on this occasion, former India tutorage Virat Kohli took a one-handed screamer and that pleased the all-rounder. Hailing it as a faboulous catch, Jadeja felt it was good to see someone else take a reservation of his bowling.
“Virat Kohli took a mythological catch. It was low and Kohli held it wonderfully. Generally I take such catches on other’s bowling, but it felt good that somebody took it on my Bowling (laughs),” said Jadeja on a video shared by the BCCI.

Kuldeep, brought into the wade from 17th over, took 4-6 while Jadeja set the wiring for the West Indies swoon with 3-37. The duo spun a vicious web of spin wizardry to trencher out West Indies for their second lowest ODI total — 114 in 23 overs — versus India.
In reply, Kishan opened the batting, took on the bowlers and hit seven fours and a six in his 46-ball 52 as the visitors’ rejigged their batting order. Tutorage Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli sat when as everyone else were given a go with the bat.
Rohit sooner came out to bat at number seven to finish off the ventilator with 163 balls remaining as India got their ninth subsequent win over West Indies.
