Jadeja has been involved in one run out every 3.5 innings

Sydney, 9 January (IANS) Ravindra Jadeja had a run-out from Steve Smith at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on Friday with a brilliant fielding after which everyone was praising him.

But when he was batting on Saturday, two Indian batsmen were run out. Jaspreet Bumrah and Ravichandran Ashwin were run out when Jadeja was at the other end.

This is not the first time Jadeja has been involved in a run-out in Test cricket. The left-handed all-rounder has been involved in a total of 20 runs in 73 Test innings.

He has run out his batting partner 13 times, while the rest of the time he himself has been run out. Its average comes out to be 3.5 per innings.

One reason for this may be that Jadeja runs very fast and his partner does not run as fast. On Saturday too, he wanted to steal a run with Ashwin which was quite risky. Pat Cummins saw Ashwin slow and gave a direct throw to the wicketkeeper who carried out the run-out.

Shortly thereafter, he pushed the ball towards square leg and called Bumrah for two runs. Marnus Labuschain noticed that Bumrah is slow. He bowled at the non-striker end and Bumrah was run out.

This is the seventh time in India’s Test history when three batsmen have been run out in the same innings. Australian fielders ran out Hanuma Vihari (4) before the third day. Vihari was run out on a direct throw by Jose Hazlewood in an attempt to steal a single. India’s fourth wicket as Vihari was dropped.

After this, Pat Cummins and Marnus Labushan dismissed Ashwin and Bumrah due to mutual understanding.

The last such incident for India was in the 2008–09 season when Virender Sehwag, VVS Laxman and Yuvraj Singh were run out in the second innings against England in Mohali.
