 Former Australia player gives his opinion on Ravindra Jadeja

India vs england

The India vs England Test series has seen some great performances by the Indian players. After all, it had to take some of these performances to win their 17th consecutive home test series. There has been a lot of talk about how Yashasvi Jaiswal, Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma have performed along with the youngsters, Sarfaraz Khan and Dhruv Jurel, who have been equally impressive. However, there were still some other great performances that we have also witnessed in the series as well.

One of the most underrated performers in this Test series is India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. Jadeja has once again impressed in this series in every department. He has not only scored 217 runs at an average of over 43 with the bat but also taken 17 wickets as well. Jadeja has proven to be a real match-winner in the 3rd Test in Rajkot as well where he took 7 wickets and scored a century. It is safe to say the number one ranked all-rounder has proven to be an impact player for his side once again.

Brad Haddin on the Rockstar

Former Australia wicketkeeper batter Brad Haddin spoke on how to tackle Jadeja as well along with some conversations after the Test series. The former 2015 World Cup winner stated “Jadeja was always a really interesting one to talk to after a Test series. He goes, ‘I just bowl at the stumps.’ And you go, ‘Nah nah nah, what else you do?’. “He goes, ‘I bowl at the stumps, the wicket will do it. You guys think it’s going to do something’.”

Haddin then brought up an important factor in Jadej’s fielding position as well and talked about decoding those tactics saying, “It was interesting playing him in an ODI series. Our coach was thinking what are they (India) going to bowl? And I remember saying just look where Jadeja is fielding. If he’s at deep long-off, they are going to (be) full at sumps. If he’s at backward square leg or cow corner, they’re going slow and into the wicket. He goes everywhere where the ball is.” This statement by the former cricketer might have been informative, but also gives us a glimpse of the brilliance of the player.
