New Zealand had reached 211 for five wickets against India when rain stopped play in the first semi-final of the Cricket World Cup at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
From taking a wicket to producing some good catches to even scoring 77 with the bat - this man nearly single-handedly carried India to the finals.
After a disastrous start by India's top order, MS Dhoni and Jadeja stood up to the occasion and cemented a 50-plus runs partnership.
The Kiwis will now face England or Australia in Sunday's showpiece at Lord's after successfully defending 8-239, their watchful approach on Tuesday vindicated following India's struggles.
Star batsmen Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli misfired as India's top-three batsmen made just one run apiece, as they lurched to 4-24 and then 6-92 chasing 240 on the reserve day due to heavy rain on Thursday.
After the match, Sanjay Manjrekar tweeted his praise for Jadeja's performance. In the end, the batting weaknesses of Team India were exposed in this match.
Chasing 240 for victory, India were reduced to 5-3 inside the first four overs and ultimately fell to a tight 18-run defeat at Old Trafford.
Courtesy this thrilling win, the Black Caps have stormed to their second successive world cup final.
Jadeja played an important role in giving India hope of progressing to the World Cup final, scoring 77 runs off 58 balls.
Which TV channels will broadcast the India vs New Zealand match? It was the third consecutive occasion when Virat Kohli failed to make it count in a World Cup semi-final.
"To bowl as outstandingly as they did in a high-pressure game makes victory over India one of New Zealand's best ever one-day performances", Vettori wrote in his column for the International Cricket Council.
India's match against New Zealand will not restart, no matter what, now the match has begun.
"His bowling was fantastic, great batting and great fielding, but he can not do it on his own and unfortunately, he was left with too much to do in the end". They were bowled out for 221 with three balls remaining. But the ball went straight up and Kane Williamson took a brilliant catch. I think the way they played after the loss of three wickets, four wickets rather, was quite commendable. Williamson and co. will now play the World Cup finals against the victor of the upcoming Australia-England semifinal fixture.
