It may be unusual for a captain to share his views with the television audience when right in the middle of action on the cricket field but that is what exactly Ajay Jadeja did on Saturday.

The flamboyant batsman, leading RCA President's XI in the one-day practice match against England, was hooked up with the commentry panel even as he went about his duties -- making the bowling changes and fielding adjustments during the visitors's run chase.

A wired up Jadeja talked about introducing spinners with commentator L Shivaramakrishnan during the first-class game.

The incident reminded one of former South African captain Hansie Cronje whose on-field interactions on a wireless radio with coach Bob Woolmer during World Cup 1999 generated much controversy.
