Ravindra Jadeja’s last few years in test cricket has been phenomenal. In the ongoing IND vs SL Test series, the all-rounder became the third Indian to score a 150+ and then take a five-for in the same test match. In fact, he is the first Indian to do so in 60 years. Overall he is the sixth test cricketer to have the record now.

It was quite shocking to see Rohit Sharma and India declare Jadeja being not out on 175. Ravindra Jadeja was looking all set for his maiden double century.

Ten years later, it was a right-arm off-break bowler who achieved the feat of 150+ runs and five-for in an inning in the same test match. In his last year of test cricket, Polly scored 172 not out against the West Indies in Port of Spain. Just like Vinoo the off-spinner first took the five-wicket haul and then went on to score the hundred in the next inning.

Umrigar took 107/5 in his 56 overs, in which 24 was maidens. Although his brilliance was not enough for India to avoid a defeat in the hands of the mighty West Indians. The Caribbean team won by 7 wickets.

#3 Ravindra Jadeja

India had to wait for 60 years to have someone on that list with those above legends of the game. The left-arm spinner always had the potential to bat for long. However, his form in the test format with the bat started getting better when Virat Kohli trusted him to bat up the order even before the wicket-keeper Saha. He became India’s one of the stronger lower middle-order batting with the ability to bat with the tail.

Jadeja scored a magnificent 175* against Sri Lanka in the first test of the 2022 series at Mohali where Virat Kohli played his 100th test match. He could have got his maiden double ton if Rohit Sharma would not have declared.

In the second inning, Jadeja ripped through the inexperienced Srilankan batting order. He took 41/5 in 13 overs.
