Superstar all-rounder, Ravindra Jadeja has made a bold prediction that he will be the ‘world’s best cricketer’ in 2025! He made this statement on his former IPL team, Rajasthan Royals’ social media page.
The Rajasthan Royals on their Instagram page asked their fans who they think would be the world’s best cricketer’ in 2025. While the fans tried to name some current, and some young players, who they believe will be the leading cricketer 4 years later.
However, Ravindra Jadeja, who played for the Royals in 2008 and 2009, named himself to be the best in 2025. The Royals’ Instagram admin pinned Jadeja’s comment and replied to him: “End of discussion (with the sword emoji).”
Well, in times to come – as if not already – Ravindra Jadeja has a claim to be the most valuable player in the world and not just the Indian team. Over the past few years, he has made himself an indispensable part of the side across formats. The all-rounder has been influential with the ball, bat, and in the field.
Jadeja sits comfortably alongside, if not above, the likes of Jason Holder, Ben Stokes, and Shakib Al Hasan in terms of significance to their respective side.
Ravindra Jadeja trains ahead of the IPL after thumb surgery
The left-hander has begun his training in full flow to regain fitness. Ravindra Jadeja sustained a thumb fracture as he copped a blow while batting in the Sydney Test series in Australia. Consequently, the 32-year-old was ruled out of the Brisbane Test, then from the entire home Test series against England.
He is also not included in the T20I series versus Eoin Morgan’s side and is unlikely to feature in the ODIs as well. In his absence, Axar Patel did the job to perfection with the ball in the Test series, and the team can make do without him in the white-ball cricket, especially with Hardik Pandya now resuming bowling partially.
Jadeja has kept his fans updated with posts about his training and close to regaining full fitness. He will next be seen in the IPL 2021 for the Chennai Super Kings. While last year was not a season to remember for the MS Dhoni-led outfit, however, Jadeja’s rise as a finisher with the bat was one of the bright spots for the franchise.
