New Delhi: After making Michael Clarke his 'bunny', left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja on Friday accounted for stand-in captain Shane Watson in the fourth Test, showing his special liking for Australian skippers.

Jadeja got Clarke out in five out of the six innings so far and with Watson's scalp in his kitty, he now has an Australian skipper out six times in seven innings in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

Watson was stumped by Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni off Jadeja in the post-lunch session.

Jadeja had made Clarke dance to his tunes in the first three Tests where the Australian skipper was bowled twice, stumped twice and caught once off his bowling.

Clarke has missed out on the fourth and final Test which commenced in New Delhi on Friday due to a back injury.

Jadeja has so far taken 17 wickets in the series with best bowling figures in an innings of 3 for 33.
