The Home of Cricket Addicts
Cricketer-turned-commentator Aakash Chopra applauded Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja for his batting in the first Test against New Zealand.
Jadeja remained unbeaten on 50 at the end of Day 1 as India’s score read 258 for four wickets down after 84 overs.
Jadeja made 50 runs from 100 balls and was involved in an inseparable partnership of 113 with debutant Shreyas Iyer, who stayed not out on 75.
Jadeja played to brilliant shots against Kyle Jamieson in the 82nd over. He first glanced nicely to put one boundary in the square-leg region. He followed it with a  punch, playing at the backfoot, towards the cover area for successive boundaries.
Chopra said that the commitment shown By the Indian all-rounder is the main reason behind his batting transformation. 
“Jadeja’s batting transformation is all about a clear Gameplan and the commitment-belief of sticking with it for as long as possible. What an incredible value-addition in the whites,” Chopra tweeted.
Earlier in the day, Indian opener Shubman Gill smashed 52 from 93 balls on his return to the Indian Test side. Gill’s opening partner Mayank Agarwal could just add 13 to the team’s total. 
Senior batter Cheteshwar Pujara made 26 from 86 balls nicked behind the wicket off Tim Southee’s bowling. Stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane found a bit of rhythm with his 63-ball 35.
New Zealand pacer Kyle Jamieson was the best bowler from his side as he scalped three wickets at the expense of 47 runs.
Senior Indian players like Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma (for just the first Test), Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami have been rested by BCCI to manage their workload.
India blanked the Black Caps 3-0 in the T20I series after losing to them in the T20 World Cup, which also dented their chances of semi-final qualification.
