Back with a Bang – Ravindra Jadeja, 33, was a major miss for the Indian team in the last few months after he was out with knee troubles. He missed the important series against South Africa and West Indies but didn’t take time to make his presence felt as he scored an unbeaten 175 against Sri Lanka in the Mohali Test. He was also impressive with the ball as he scalped a fifer in the first innings and followed that with a four-wicket haul in the second innings. He was adjourned ‘Man of the Match’ for his performance in the opening Test.
