India’s Kedar Jadhav believes training, as well as the fitness, has made him a better cricketer. The current Indian team has focussed more on their training and fitness and the results have been fruitful. Meanwhile, Kedar Jadhav has done a fine job with the ball for the Indian team. He had bowled an economical spell against Hong Kong. In fact, Jadhav was right on the money against Pakistan as he scalped three wickets.

Jadhav is known to keep a tight grip on the proceedings. Furthermore, he doesn’t let the batsmen off the hook despite being a part-time spinner.

Secret behind Jadhav's wicket-taking art: Not bowling in the nets

Jadhav is doing a fine job.

Thus, there is no denying the fact that Jadhav has worked hard on his bowling, however, he says he doesn’t bowl a lot in the nets. Furthermore, Jadhav bowls his deliveries with a low arm action. Thus, the ball hardly bounces which makes it difficult for the batsmen.

Jadhav said while talking in the post-match presentation, “It feels good to be on the winning side. I feel my fitness has improved after my surgery, and in the last four months, I have learnt a lot about training and fitness. It has definitely helped me and has made me a different cricketer. Honestly, right before a match, I bowl a couple of overs in the practice session, but I don’t bowl a lot in the nets. I feel if I try too hard to be a bowler, I don’t want to compromise on the other skills that I already have! So I try to be in my limits”.

Meanwhile, Jadhav believes working hard on his fitness has helped him reap fruits at the topmost level. Jadhav said he has started taking his routine with more seriousness.

“Every time I did my rehab previously, I used to start playing and think that the problems won’t come back again. Many-a-time I also used to miss my routine, but now regardless of how I feel, I start my day with either gym or running. That gives me confidence that I’m getting stronger and fitter every day, and that helps me on the field.”

Kedar Jadhav has done a fine job in getting through his overs. Jadhav is making most of the conditions as he is bowling wicket to wicket. The off-spinner doesn’t give a chance to a batsman to free his arms and he is accurate with his line and length.
