Australian media and Michael Vaughan made allegations
Australia’s score was 120-5 when Jadeja came to bowl while it is clearly visible in the viral video that Ravindra had a small conversation with Mohammad Siraj. During that Ravindra Jadeja was seen rubbing his fingers on the ball. Australian media felt that Ravindra Jadeja was rubbing the ball, where former Australia captain Tim Paine and Michael Vaughan, who often spew venom against India, have accused Team India of dishonesty.
This video has sparked a debate in the cricket world. Some are saying that Jadeja tampered with the ball and some are talking about cleaning the soil with the ball. Australian media Fox are busy raising the issue of cricket ball tampering. Former English captain Michael Vaughan tweeted. ‘What is he putting on his wiggling finger? Never seen anything like this.
Are kangaroos jealous of Jadeja?
It is known that Ravindra Jadeja alone has taken 5 out of 10 victims. Kangaroo batsmen were seen dancing in front of Jaddu’s balls. The all-rounder, returning to international cricket after injury, took five wickets for 47 runs in 22 overs. Ravichandran Ashwin took three victims while pacer Mohammed Shami and Mohammed Siraj got one success each.
India will also have to handle
In response to Australia’s 177, India have scored 77 runs by losing one wicket till stumps. India are only 100 runs behind in the remaining four days of play. From here on, skipper Pat Cummins needs to shine as Rohit Sharma is set, bringing up his half-century. India will be hoping to play the first hour of the morning session carefully as the match could get interesting if the Aussies get two wickets. The pitch is starting to deteriorate as batting at number four will not be easy by any means.
