Tim Paine and Rishabh Pant may not have been on the field, but the banter between Australia and India has continued — only this time it was in the commentary box.

With his round-arm sling and bent knees on release, Kedar Jadhav’s bowling action has always caught the eye.

Already on the shorter end of the scale at 1.65 metre’s tall, Jadhav’s bowling action gives him a uniquely low release point — 137cm according to the hosts broadcasters.

“That has to be the lowest release point ever in men’s cricket,” Sanjay Manjrekar said in the commentary box.

“Malinga would be the only person that could bowl a little bit lower,” replied Matthew Hayden.

“I think lowest after Trevor Chappell’s delivery,” Manjrekar added, drawing a healthy laugh from his co-commentators.

The former Indian batsman was of course referring to Chappell’s infamous 1981 underarm delivery that ensured Australia could not lose a thrilling one-dayer against New Zealand.

While it may not be the easiest on the eye, Jadhav’s action has made him a real asset to Virat Kohli.

It’s a methodology that saw him remove Marcus Stoinis and one that has brought him 26 wickets in ODI cricket from 55 matches. Not bad at all for a part-time off-spinner primarily in the team for his batting.
