Cheteshwar Pujara and Shubman Gill were also spotted alongside Virat cheering for Ravindra Jadeja.

Jadeja finally scored 104 out of 194 balls. His century paved the path for him to become only the fourth Indian to score two Test centuries in a year while batting at the no. 7 position or lower. With this achievement, the all-rounder has now joined former captains Kapil Dev and MS Dhoni and spin great Harbhajan Singh on the list.

After Jadeja’s was out, Jasprit Bumrah took the lead and made an unbeaten run of 31 out of 16 balls. His back-to-back hits with four fours and two sixes awestruck the audiences and helped India to score 416.
Earlier, on day 1 of the test series India faced a major collapse of the batsmen and were struggling by standing at 98 for 5 wickets. However, Rishabh Pant played the rescuer and kept India in the form by producing a masterclass performance at the ground. Rishabh’s performance has helped India to stage a comeback in the series. The wicketkeeper cum batsman scored a whopping 146 runs out of 111 balls, which includes 19 fours and four sixes. India is now currently leading 2-1 and they now aim to build on the tempo and clinch the series.

During a press conference, Rishabh opened up about his love for the red-ball format. He stated, “I was just focussing on the ball. Yes, the pressure was there because when you lose 3-4 wickets early on. You’ve got to build a partnership but at the same time, if you focus on the result, you might not get the result. I tried to focus process which gives me results most of the time. As a player, I try not to think about what the opposition wants to do. It’s more about what I want to do and reding the game situation.”
