Aakash Chopra stated that Ravindra Jadeja was unplayable in India’s ICC T20 World Cup match against Scotland. Jadeja took three wickets while conceding just 15 runs in his four overs. His spell helped the Indian team bowl out Scotland for just 85 runs.
“My Player of the Match is Ravindra Jadeja. One by one, he told the batters Ja Re Ja. He bowled very well, he took three wickets, Shami also took three. But I have picked Jadeja.”
Ravindra Jadeja conceded just one boundary during his bowling spell.
Aakash Chopra highlighted that Ravindra Jadeja’s tight line and length paid him rich dividends.
“He bowled like Sir, he finishes the ball within the three stumps. When it turned a little, he hit the stumps and when it didn’t, he hit the pads. He was almost unplayable. Neither does he give a single nor does he give us an opportunity to talk because he finishes his over in 90-odd seconds.”
The 44-year old added that Ravindra Jadeja can bowl in all conditions.
“The one thing from Ravindra Jadeja I want is that he should become the four-over gun bowler in T20 cricket. In my opinion, he is still not there but can reach there. You look at him as a package but you should think that Jaddu will give you four overs whatever be the conditions.”
