The veteran Indian all-rounder went on to share an old video of Australian Usman Khawaja’s run out against India in 2019 at the Adelaide Oval in the first ODI. Khawaja had cut the ball in the front of the point and taken off for a run, Jadeja, who is one of the best fielders in the world, was quick to the ball and picked it up with one hand and hit the stumps at the non-striker’s end direct, to run out Khawaja.
