Kedar Jadhav played an important role in helping India win the Asia Cup-2018.
India won this big tournament by defeating Bangladesh in 2018, in which this player played an important role with both his bat and ball.
The Indian cricket team is counted among the legendary teams of Asia. They are one of the best teams on the continent. The team has won the Asia Cup title seven times. Although the Asia Cup was to be held this year, it could not be held due to the World Test Championship. The last time the Asia Cup was organized in the United Arab Emirates and it was won by India. India won the title by defeating Bangladesh by three wickets. This was India’s seventh Asia Cup title. India’s victory in this match seemed to be difficult, but a batsman saved India’s shame. The name of this batsman is Kedar Jadhav. This final match of Asia Cup was played on this day i.e. 28 September in 2018.
Actually, Jadhav came out to bat twice in this match. He came to bat at number 7 but had to retire due to injury. After this he returned in the 48th over and gave victory to the team. Jadhav went back due to injury in the 38th over. After this, India’s tail batsmen batted but victory was looking difficult as India lost the wicket of Ravindra Jadeja in the meantime. Jadeja was out on the second ball of the 48th over. Here India needed 11 runs off 17 balls. Here Jadhav again stepped on the field. But Bhuvneshwar Kumar was also out in the next over. Now India had full hopes only from Jadhav. India needed three runs in the last over and Kuldeep Yadav was with Jadhav. Kuldeep took a run on the first ball and then Jadhav on the next ball. Jadhav took one run on the sixth ball to give India victory. Had Jadhav not been there, perhaps India would have already lost the match. He played an innings of 23 runs in 27 balls.
