Sachin Tendulkar led the reactions on Twitter as Ravindra Jadeja became the sixth cricketer to register a 150-plus score and take five wickets in the same Test. The all-rounder achieved the feat on Day 3 of the ongoing first Test match vs Sri Lanka at Mohali, on Sunday. The 33-year-old took five wickets in Sri Lanka’s first innings and also had earlier smashed an unbeaten knock of 175 runs to help India post 574/8d. Other than Jadeja, only Vinoo Mankad, Denis Atkinson, Polly Umrigar, Gary Sobers and Mushtaq Mohammad are the only cricketers to have registered this achievement.
