Ravindra Jadeja showed his batting prowess on Sunday as he scored an unbeaten 54 off 76 balls in India’s intra-squad practice match at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton.

With the ball, Mohammed Siraj impressed with figures of 2/22 on the third day of the four-day practice match ahead of the ICC World Test Championship (WTC) final against New Zealand, starting on June 18.

The BCCI posted a video of the match consisting of multiple snippets, including Jadeja taking on Ishant Sharma and effectively running between the wickets.

Earlier, the BCCI had also posted the highlights of the second day. Shubman Gill, Rishabh Pant and Ishant Sharma had topped the charts on Day 2, the BCCI said.

India carried out their first group practice session at a ground adjacent to the Ageas Bowl on Thursday, five days after being allowed staggered training — they were allowed to run in the gymnasium and the main playing field at different time slots on completion of the third day of their hard quarantine in the UK.

Speculation is ongoing regarding the possible playing XI India field in the WTC final, which starts from next Friday.
