Ranji Trophy 2018-19: Ravindra Jadeja Shines With Both Bat and Ball
India’s all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is continuing his dream form going. Jadeja first scalped a four-wicket haul and then scored a fine hundred in the ongoing Ranji Trophy 2018-19 fixture against Railways. The southpaw spinner took four wickets in the first innings to skittle out Railways for the paltry score of 200 runs.
Dharmendrasinh Jadeja and Kamlesh Makvana were able to take two and three wickets respectively. Subsequently, Ravindra Jadeja was able to back his bowling performance with his willow. In fact, Saurashtra found themselves behind the eight-ball as they were tottering at 32-4 in their batting innings.
Jadeja keeps his good form going.
Thus, Saurashtra needed someone to steady their ship. Jadeja is batting unbeaten on 117 and has extended his team lead to 42 runs at the Tea break on Day two of the ongoing Ranji Trophy 2018-19. Saurashtra still has three wickets in hand and their tail has been able to wag to support Jadeja.
Meanwhile, Jadeja has had an emphatic return to the game. The Indian all-rounder could not find his place in the first four Test matches against England. However, he finally got his chance in the final Test match and scored a fine knock of 86 to keep India in the game.
On the other hand, Ravindra Jadeja was able to break into the ODI squad after Hardik Pandya was injured. Jadeja scalped four wickets in the Super Four fixture against Bangladesh to continue his sublime form. Subsequently, he went on to score his maiden Test hundred in the first Test match against the Windies. Thus, it has been a merry time for the Indian all-rounder.
Therefore, Jadeja will aim to continue with his good form on the upcoming tour of Australia. India will play three T20Is, four Test matches and three ODIs against Australia.
