India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja took a stunner in the outfield to dismiss Jason Roy for 66 in Edgbaston on Sunday. On the first ball of the 23rd over, Roy danced down the track and took the aerial route against Kuldeep Yadav.
But Jadeja was quick enough to judge the catch as he came running towards the ball and gathered it diving to his left.

Earlier, England skipper Eoin Morgan won the toss and elected to bat first on a surface that was looking good for the batsmen. Openers Roy and Jonny Bairstow didn’t disappoint the captain and the two stitched a stand of 160 runs for the first wicket.
India are so far unbeaten in the tournament and a win in this game will take them into the semis.
