Chennai: Indian Test all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja brought India back in the match by picking three wickets on the final day of the fifth Test match against England at MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chepauk.

Alastair Cook and Keaton Jennings added 103-runs for the opening wicket after which Jadeja picked three quick wickets in quick succession to send tourists on backfoot.

India got its fourth breakthrough when Ishant Sharma fired a bouncer to Jonny Bairstow, who played a pull shot over midwicket. Jadeja, fielding at midwicket, ran backwards and ended up taking one of the finest catches we will ever see.
