Jadeja said after the match, ‘Be very happy after giving good performance from both bat and ball. I was backing myself and was not thinking of hitting any shot beforehand, I was trying to hit it by looking at the ball. The pitch was very slow, due to which I was trying to bowl in all three stumps and was not giving room to the batsmen in any way. The pitch was quite difficult to bat on. I try to contribute fully with my fielding and whenever I do fielding, I try to get a good runout or catch for the team.
