IPL 2019: Ravindra Jadeja Can be a Key Member in India’s World Cup Squad – Harbhajan Singh
India’s veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh believes Ravindra Jadeja could be a vital cog in the World Cup squad. Ravindra Jadeja has been at his best in the recent past and he can be an all-rounder to watch out for in the ODI showpiece. Jadeja was at his best in the first match against Royal Challengers Bangalore as he took a pair of wickets.
Furthermore, Ravindra Jadeja had taken a crucial catch of AB de Villiers, while coming forward at deep square-leg after Imran Tahir had fluffed one catch. Harbhajan Singh who had a mediocre previous season was able to turn the tables in the opener of the 12th season of the Indian Premier League. The Turbanator was at his best as he made use of his experience to extract turn from the surface.
Jadeja will be a firm contender for the World Cup spot.
In fact, there was a lot of help for the spinners and Harbhajan made the most of the conditions. The experienced off-spinner landed his deliveries in the right areas after MS Dhoni introduced him in the second over of the match. Bhajji scalped three wickets and conceded only 20 runs in his four overs quota to be adjudged the Man of the Match.
“I feel someone like Ravindra Jadeja is always in the game as long as he is looking to spin the ball. He is someone, though I don’t want to talk way too much about the World Cup, I feel he could be a key member for the Indian team to win that. He bowls, bats and is a brilliant fielder, a gun fielder. Finger spinners should be given the responsibility and they will deliver,” said Harbhajan in the post-match press conference after CSK’s 7-wicket win.
Chennai Super Kings were able to draw the first blood in the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League. It was a collective effort from the Yellow team as they ticked the right boxes.
Meanwhile, Ravindra Jadejawould be a contender for the World Cup spot. Jadeja will fight with the likes of Hardik Pandya and Vijay Shankar, who have done well in the recent past. Thus, the Indian Premier League is going to play a key role for all the players to seal their place.
On the other hand, Chennai Super Kings will play their next IPL match against Delhi Capitals on 26th March at Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium, Delhi,
