Indian captain Virat Kohli has said that the bowling by the part-time off-spinner Kedar Jadhav’s was the crucial thing in the match against Bangladesh. Kedar helped to restrict Bangladesh to 264/7 and then cantering to a nine-wicket win in the ICC Champions Trophy semifinal here to set up a final clash against Pakistan.
“We had another complete game. When we won the toss, I expected another clean performance. With the ball, we never let them away. The two quick wickets got us the momentum. He (Jadhav) has bowled in India as well. He is a smart guy. He knows where to pitch it. Had those guys carried on, we would have been chasing 300.
“Kedar’s spell was difference in the game for us. To restrict them to 260….they never got away from us. We never let them get past six runs an over,” Kohli said after the match.
