Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has said that he just played his natural game against England yesterday and attacking is the only way he knows. Jadeja made a crucial half century as India recovered from 169-4 to post 342. Jadeja played a key role as he accumulated vital runs with the tail. He was quite aggressive right from the beginning and managed to hit Anderson and Broad all over the ground. Although it was a risky strategy considering the game situation, it worked for him and his team.

Jadeja said, “I just wanted to play my game, no matter what the situation was. My plan was to play my shots, irrespective of who the bowler was. Defending would not have worked because that’s not my game. I kept talking to myself when I went in to bat.”

Jadeja also took a wicket later in the day, and he added, “There are footmarks for the left-handers and the odd ball is bouncing. England will find it difficult on Monday. MS asked me if he should stand far back and suggested I bowled as far as I could. There were two left-handers (Alastair Cook and Gary Ballance) and with the footmarks, it almost worked.”
