CRICKET

Jadeja said that He won’t bowl in test cricket to Kaif

Border-Gavaskar Trophy

Ravindra Jadeja made his comeback to the Indian team after nearly six months. Before, coming back to the Indian team he played the Ranji match against Tamil Nadu in Chepauk stadium. He also took a 7-wicket haul in the 2nd innings of the match. In the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, he is the leading wicket-taker. The contribution of the bat also cannot be negligible.

Kaif on Jadeja’s bowling action

“I was there with him in Gujarat Lions. I was the coach and he was a part of the team. I asked him to develop some variations, bowl carrom bowls or with a side arm, but he said he won’t be able to bowl in Tests once he gets into a bad habit, so Jadeja won’t change his action.”

“I am talking about more than five-six years back. He knew his strength is his action, his strength is that he walks leisurely in his run-up, his strength is his accuracy and to consistently bowl at one spot in Test matches and he has struck to that strength now as well.”

He further added on Jadeja that

The seven wickets he took, he didn’t make any changes to what he has been doing, bowled with the same mindset and picked up the Man of the Match award. It shows that he doesn’t go after flamboyance. Let the world do whatever they want to do. Ashwin tries, he bowls the knuckle-ball or carrom-ball, let him do that, he (Jadeja) knows what his strengths are. That is the fantastic thing about him.”
