Ravindra Jadeja has some kind of power, suggests social media. No wonder he is popularly known as 'Sir' Jadeja on Twitter. Does he really have special powers? Of course, he has. We have no doubt about it. No one doubts 'Sir Jadeja'.

To stay ahead in a pressure game, one needs to put extra effort. Jadeja showed us how. Exhibiting his extraordinary fielding skills in the Asia Cup 2018 final, the Saurashtra cricketer sent Mohammad Mithun back to the pavilion before he could make up for his mistake.

Mithun and Liton Das had a mix-up in the 27th over of Bangladesh's innings which resulted in the former's wicket. Das tried to pierce the fielders in the ring when he drove a flighted delivery from Yuzvendra Chahal to 5-6 meters away from Jadeja, who was at extra cover.

Jadeja covered the ground really well thanks to his energetic dive and not only he stopped the ball, the southpaw recovered quickly and also showed good game awareness to throw the ball to bowler's end where Mithun was struggling to cover his ground.

The wicket ensured Bangladesh don't get back on their feet after suffering a collapse. 

Speaking after the match, Jadeja said he wanted to prove himself after staying out of the Indian team for almost 15 months. "I was almost out for 15 months and I wasn't feeling good. I want to play white-ball cricket, I just wanted to prove myself and improve on my game. You need to prove yourself when you get the opportunity, you need to show you are good enough. I just wanted to play my natural game, try and hit the ball well and win the game for my country", he said.

India won the final by 3 wickets as they chased down 223 on the last ball of the game.
