Ravindra Jadeja became the first Indian bowler to take a five-wicket haul against South Africa in World Cups with his performance in Kolkata on November 5.

India had registered 327 runs in their 50 overs, following Virat Kohli's 49h ODI hundred and Shreays Iyer's 77 in Kolkata. A late blitz with the bat from Ravindra Jadeja, who scored 29 off 15 balls, ensured India went past 300 to post the big total.

The Indian bowlers started off brilliantly with Mohammed Siraj getting rid of the dangerous Quinton de Kock in the second over of the game.

Temba Bavuma and Rassie

van der Dussen found it hard to score runs as the Indian pacers kept the run flow under control before Jadeja entered the fray.

The Indian all-rounder would strike with his third ball as he cleaned up Bavuma. Jadeja would then trap Heinrich Klaasen in front of the stumps, and after a well-taken review, the decision went in favor of India as South Africa found themselves in all sorts of trouble.

David Miller was the next victim of Jadeja, as he attempted an audacious sweep to see his stumps rattled. The next to fall was Keshav Maharaj as he was cleaned up completely by the Indian all-rounder.
