'Sword celebration' is a trademark of Rajputs, says 'Sir' Jadeja

ANI  |  Mohali (Punjab) [India] 

Indian all-rounder on Monday yet again got the opportunity to perform his traditional celebration of bat brandishing during his career-best knock of 90 runs during the ongoing third Test of the five-match series against at the Cricket Stadium (PCA) in Mohali.

Jadeja reached his 3rd Test fifty against in the first innings and after reaching the milestone, the left-hander brought out his trademark sword celebration out, twirling his bat vigorously in the direction of the dressing room with a smile on his face.

However, he confirmed that being a Rajput, it is his trademark to enjoy success by swinging a bat, because he cannot use a sword on field.

"My celebration style is a trademark of a Rajput. And I follow that only. There is nothing new in it. Being a Rajput, it is my trademark to enjoy success by swinging a bat, of course I can't use sword on field," Jadeja told reports after the end of third day's play here.

It wasn't the first time that the 27-year-old Saurashtra all-rounder had celebrated in that manner.

After getting his first Test fifty at Lord's in 2014, he celebrated in the same manner, leaving everyone bewildered at the venue. The second instance came more recently when he reached the fifty-mark against in Kanpur Test match at the Green Park.

In Mohali, Jadeja came to the middle at a tricky time for the Indian side with skipper Virat Kohli dismissed and India 204/6 in reply to England's 283. He joined his fellow spin compatriot Ravichandran Ashwin to turn things around for the hosts after a middle order collapse.

Ashwin and Jadeja shared a 97-stand before the former got out at the individual score of 72. However, Jadeja found an able partner in Jayant (55) and the duo added 80 runs to consolidate India's lead. Jadeja got out 10 short of his maiden Test hundred in trying to score quickly.

At stumps on Day Four, the visitors were left in tatters at 78-4, and are still trailing by 56 runs. India lead 1-0 in the five-match Test series against with Tests in Mumbai and Bengaluru to come.
