Just when he was being written off by the cricket pundits, Ravindra Jadeja has made a stellar comeback and made a hard hitting statement once and for all. Jadeja has been the trump card for the Indians in their test series win, over the world’s number one side South Africa. Jadeja has been literally unplayable, and the main reason behind that has been his ability to continuously attack the batsmen.

Jadeja was recently lauded by his Saurashtra coach Debu Mitra, for his excellent performances. “He’s unplayable on a turner. I’ve not seen a left-arm spinner in my career who won’t bowl a single ball outside leg stump in his entire spell, but would keep firing it on the stumps,” Mitra said.

Former Saurashtra captain Shitanshu Kotak, under whom Jadeja began his journey in domestic cricket, also hailed the left arm spinner. “He’s the best left-arm spinner all-rounder that we have for these conditions. He’s consistent and bowls with a low, flat trajectory , which doesn’t give you room or time to hit the ball. In fact, as it happened with the SA batsmen he leaves you confused abouT whether to leave or play the ball If it doesn’t turn and you leave it you meet Amla’s fate.His ‘straighter’ delivery is even more dangerous. And if it turns, you can easily edge it behind the wickets. He’s economical, and can bowl long spells. It helps that he has a strong shoulder,” Kotak said.

 

Former Indian spinner Narendra Hirwani too was among the ones to praise the Saurashtra all rounder. “In these conditions, he’s a sure-shot match-winner. And that’s because he’s accurate. He bowls side-on, which creates a difficult angle for the batsmen and plenty of doubts. His bowls at the quick air speed which is ideal for such wickets,” Hirwani said.

“He has kept things tight and applied pressure from one end, which has allowed Ashwin to bowl more freely. Vice-versa, sometimes batsmen take a chance against Jadeja because they can’t do so against Ashwin, and perish in the process. It’s a perfect bowling partnership. With Amit Mishra in the mix too, you have the ideal variety to compliment the attack,” Hirwani added.
