On Day 1 of the third Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Indore, Indian all-round superstar Ravindra Jadeja set a new record. India were bowled out for 109 after winning the toss and opting to bat first. Jadeja, meanwhile, claimed the wickets of Travis Head, Marnus Labuschagne, Usman Khawaja, and Steve Smith in Australia's opening innings.
The spinner gave India its first breakthrough in the second over, matching the extraordinary accomplishment of World Champion Kapil Dev. On the fourth delivery of his first over, Jadeja dismissed Australian opener Travis Head to reach 500 wickets in international cricket. He is the second Indian player in history to amass 5000 runs and 500 international wickets. He achieved the remarkable record in his 298th appearance for Team India.
Kapil Dev has a record of scoring 9031 runs and has picked up 687 wickets in 356 international matches. Jadeja is only the 11th cricketer overall to take 500 wickets and score 5000 runs in international cricket.
