Ravindra Jadeja's ideal response to Matthew Wade on day two

The BCCI's media team had uploaded the video where it was seen that while Jadeja was batting, Wade was constantly trying to sledge him from behind the stumps. But on Day 3 of the Dharamsala Test, the Aussies brought out another competitive side of Jadeja.

Asked about his bowling, Jadeja said, "this shoulder is now on automode, everything happens by itself".

India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja said that his spat with Australia wicketkeeper Matthew Wade motivated him to perform better in the Dharamsala Test. Jadeja was adjudged the Man of the Match of the Dharamsala Test and the Man of the Series against Australia.

Top-ranked India need to make 87 runs to clinch the series and regain the Border-Gavaskar trophy with two days to go in the match and all their wickets intact.

Ravindra Jadeja looked back fondly on an immensely successful home season and expressed his satisfaction at finding consistent success in whites. Since the Chennai Test against England this season, Jadeja has taken a mind-boggling 41 wickets from 6 Tests at an average of 18.68, getting a wicket every 52 balls. "When I batted, I was thinking to take my time and then Wade chirped from behind".

"Today I realised that what exactly people mean when they talk about challenges of Test cricket". The players are going to say things here and there and their emotions are going to be high as it should be in such a big series.

Ravindra Jadeja and Matthew Wade were involved in some serious war of words, and the likes of Steve Smith also joined in, but the left-hander had the last laugh, completing an important half-century. For someone who was used to playing second fiddle to R Ashwin, this improvement has ensured India haven't suffered on the spin front during this long home season.

"Ashwin and I maintain pressure from both ends".
