Ahead of the final and deciding ODI game at Melbourne, the all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is standing at the doors of the stunning record. He is all set to join the legendary players Kapil Dev and Sachin Tendulkar if he gets 10 runs with his willow in the upcoming game.
If he scores 10 or more, Jadeja will become the 26th all-rounder with the double of 2,000 ODI runs and 150 wickets. Also, he is only the third Indian cricketer after Kapil Dev and Sachin Tendulkar to achieve this brilliant feat.
Ravindra Jadeja made a great turnaround:
Ravindra Jadeja is in scintillating form for Indian National Cricket Team across the formats. His good performances kept the pressure on the Indian management to get into the playing XI, across the formats. The injury of Hardik Pandya in Asia Cup 2018 helped Jadeja to get back into the scheme of things for ODI format.
And, straightaway, Ravindra Jadeja put on the impressive show in the ODI. It helped him to get a spot on the overseas tour as well. However, yet again, his place was under the scan with Hardik Pandya being available. But, the unfortunate suspension for Hardik Pandya has favoured Jadeja once again.
Coming to the preview of the fourth ODI, India has got their batting vows sorted out a bit compared to their performance in the first ODI. Only concern was Ambati Rayudu, who hasn’t been in the best of form and it was evident in his scratchy innings on Tuesday.
India would be relieved after M.S Dhoni and Dinesh Karthik’s calm and composed approach. The premium batsman Virat Kohli also showed his class at Adelaide to make things hard for Australia in their plans for 3rd ODI.
Meanwhile, Australia’s only concern in their batting section is the poor form of Aaron Finch. However, he would like to deliver the goods at his home ground. Meanwhile, the middle-order looks solid with Glenn Maxwell at number 7 performing brilliantly.
Both teams have concerns in the bowling department with their problems with the third pacer. However, they would back their bowling section, as the batsmen played few top-class knocks.
