Ravindra Jadeja and Team India

India vs South Africa 2nd Test Match : Team India is in trouble right now. While on the South Africa tour, under the captaincy of Suryakumar Yadav, Team India somehow ended the T20 series in a draw, whereas under the captaincy of KL Rahul, it managed to win the ODI series. Now it’s time to test. Under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma, the Indian team is busy preparing for the second match. After losing the first Test by innings, now the challenge of saving the series is on Rohit and his team. But if captain Rohit makes some changes in the playing eleven of the next match and gives a chance to one player, then the South African team may be in trouble. Let us try to understand which player we are talking about and why.

Ravindra Jadeja did not play in the playing eleven of the first test.

When Indian cricket team captain Rohit Sharma came to the field at the time of toss for the first test match, he told about the playing eleven of the match and especially mentioned Ravindra Jadeja. He said that Jadeja has back spasm, hence he will not be able to play this match. This should be understood to mean that if he had been fit he would have been playing the match. Ravichandran Ashwin got a chance in his place. Who could not leave his mark in the first match. Neither of his bat yielded runs and only one wicket was visible in his account. Back spasms are not a long-term problem, so it can be assumed that they will be cured now. In such a situation, Rohit Sharma can give him a chance in the playing eleven of the next match.

Ravindra Jadeja amazing against Army Country

If Ravindra Jadeja comes in the playing eleven, then it can be assumed that the Indian team will look even stronger. We are saying this because the figures are testifying to it. Ravindra Jadeja has bowled brilliantly against Army countries and you will be surprised to see his figures in the Test against South Africa. When we say military countries, it means South Africa, England, New Zealand and Australia. He has bowled in 35 innings so far in these countries and has managed to take 52 wickets. His average is 37.23 and strike rate is 83.7.

Ravindra Jadeja’s best figures against South Africa

Now let us talk only about South Africa. Ravindra Jadeja has bowled in 15 innings of 8 Test matches so far against South Africa. In this, he has 42 wickets in his name. He is the sixth highest wicket taker for Team India against South Africa. His average against South Africa is 19.9 and economy is 2.27.

Took six wickets in the Durban Test in South Africa

Ravindra Jadeja has taken six wickets while playing Test against this team in South Africa. This year was 2013. Then the Test was played in Durban. He took six wickets in the first innings of this match, but he could not do anything amazing in the second innings. However, Team India had to lose this match by 10 wickets. We have only talked about bowling. He is also considered an expert in showing good hands in batting. If he enters the Indian team for the Cape Town Test, Ashwin may have to sit out, but Jadeja can definitely prove to be of some help in helping the team win.
