Ravindra Jadeja is popular for running throw his overs in quick time. India’s over-rate has been very healthy when R Ashwin and Jadeja bowl in tandem. With a short run-up and quick arm action that is not complicated, Jadeja is one bowler with a simple action. But, he tried tweaking it on Saturday.
Before the start of play on the third day of the second Test between India and Sri Lanka in Colombo on Saturday, Jadeja was seen bowling at the nets. Present there was also former India left-arm spinner Murali Kartik.
While Kartik was standing besides the pitch, Jadeja was bowling and before one delivery, Jadeja switches to a new bowling action — that of Kartik. He impersonated Kartik and bowled one delivery that went over the stumps.

Jadeja became the fastest to reach 150 Test wickets among left-arm bowlers as he reached the feat in his 32nd Test.
