Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who is considered one of the best fielders in Cricket today produced a magic moment as he got rid of Neil Wagner on Day 2 of the second Test between India and New Zealand in Christchurch on Sunday. A power-packed spell of bowling by Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja gave India a seven-run first innings lead over New Zealand.

However, what grabbed eyeballs before the tea break was Jadeja's one-handed stunner. It all happened on the last delivery of the 72nd over when Wagner hooked a short delivery from speedster Mohammed Shami. At first, it looked like the shot would go for six, however, it cased as Jadeja did his thing at the square leg boundary. Standing some feet away from the boundary, Jadeja timed his leap to perfection before grabbing the ball with one hand to display a stellar attempt.
