Watch: Jadeja avoids nasty collision with Gill during second Test against Australia
India's Ravindra Jadeja and Shubman Gill avoided a nasty collision during the Boxing Day Test against Australia at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on Saturday.
In the 13th over of the Australian innings, India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin beat Matthew Wade in flight as the Australian opener mistimed a lofted shot.
Jadeja and Gill both charged towards the ball despite a loud call of ‘mine’ from the former. The debutant was committed to completing the catch and could not control his momentum and slightly nudged the Indian all-rounder. Jadeja took a brilliant catch at the end and avoided the collision.
Cricket Australia took to Twitter and shared the video and captioned it as "Almost disaster! But Jadeja held his ground and held the catch!"
The Indian cricket fans also gave their own opinion regarding the incident on social media.
Meanwhile, at Tea on day one of the second Test, Australia were 136/5 with skipper Tim Paine and Cameron Green batting on 0 and 6 respectively.
