Ravindra Jadeja has had an outstanding day so far during India's first ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 semi-final clash against New Zealand on Wednesday. The stylish all-rounder affected a runout and also taken a brilliant catch off the very next delivery. Jaddu also bowled an economical spell of 1/34 in his 10 overs at an economy rate of  3.40.

However, Jadeja the batsman also made an impact when India's run chase of 240 was in shatters. The Men In Blue were reduced to 5/3 as Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and skipper Virat Kohli were sent back to the pavilion. They were in shambles at 92/6 when Jadeja walked in to bat. From then on the CSK boys ( including MS Dhoni) anchored the run chase with their vital partnership for the seventh-wicket stand. The Saurashtra all-rounder scored a splendid half-century and waved his bat in style by carrying out his signature style celebrations.

At the time of publishing this story, Jadeja was unbeaten on a 48-ball 59 while Dhoni was batting at a 58-ball 30.

Here's how the netizens hailed Jadeja for his electrifying performance.
