Making his debut on Chahal TV, Kedar Jadhav along with chinaman Kuldeep Yadav spoke to Yuzvendra Chahal after India beat Australia by 6 wickets in the 1st ODI in Hyderabad, courtesy of MS Dhoni and Kedhar Jadhav's match-winning stand.
India reached the target in 48.2 overs, riding on a 141-run unconquered stand between Kedar (81 no, 87 balls) and Dhoni (59 no off 72 balls), to take a 1-0 lead in the five-match series.

Here's what Yuzvendra had to say, "We are back, everyone must have missed Chahal TV and I also missed you guys and due to some technical issues we could not be on, so along with me we have Kuldeep and Kedar."
On asking Kedar on how can Dhoni take two runs with a cramp while there is misfield as well, Kedar simply stated that he follows the former captain blindly.
"See, whatever Mahi Bhai asks me to do, I follow him blindly and I become successful in that. I never fear when Dhoni is batting with me," Kedar told Yuzvendra on Chahal TV.
While the 33-year-old remained not out on 81, Dhoni played a calm and composed knock of 59 not out off 72 balls as India cruised to victory.
Speaking about the mindset and how he went about his innings after coming in a tricky situation, Jadhav said: "I tried to learn a lot from him (MS). MS and Cheeku [Kohli] are the best chasers in the game, I feel. The intensity has to be there all the time. That's what we learn from the captain and that's what we tried to do," Jadhav said in the post-match presentation.
"I would have tried to play more shots early had Dhoni Bhai not been there. That's what he does, he tells you exactly. He reads your mind; plenty of times when you feel this ball can be hit for boundaries, he'll tell you 'I can see that but the team needs more solidity and you have to bat till the end'."
"Every time you think of the team, most of the times, you'll cross the line and end up on the winning side," the man-of-the-match added.
The Men in Blue will look to consolidate their lead in the five-match ODI series as they host Australia in the 2nd ODI on March 5 in Nagpur.
