On a day when not much went India’s way in the first two sessions in Ranchi, Ravindra Jadeja — India’s rockstar — took center stage. The man nicknamed “Sir” celebrated his ascent to the top of the ICC bowlers rankings with a five-wicket haul but the highlight of his day has to be the run-out to dismiss Josh Hazlewood and bring an end to the Aussie innings.
Why? Because Jaddu pulled an MS Dhoni — a no-look flick on to the stumps.

With India struggling so far in this Test match, Jadeja’s five-for and the Dhoni imitation for the run-out gave something to cheer for the fans.

For too long Jadeja had been seen as a bad wicket bowler. This season he has moved up and can claim to an all-wicket bowler in India— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) March 17, 2017
Once again 5 wickets for Jadeja. On a wicket that hasn’t had much spin or bounce in this first innings he has been a class above 👍🏏— Michael Clarke (@MClarke23) March 17, 2017
