How long should Team India trust Ravindra Jadeja? He has been breaking hearts in T20 World Cup for 15 years


Team India has once again maintained its dominance by defeating Pakistan in the T20 World Cup. Team India defeated Pakistan by 6 runs despite scoring only 119 runs in Naso County, New York. The stars of Team India's victory were all the bowlers including Jaspreet Bumrah and Hardik Pandya, who saved even such a small score. Except Rishabh Pant, all the batsmen of Team India failed on this pitch. Now there was a lot of discussion about the failure of great batsmen like captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav, but the failure of star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja got hidden in it, who has not been able to make any major impact in batting for the last 15 years.

In this match played in New York, it was feared from the beginning that the pitch was not going to be easy for batting at all. On top of that, batting first in the changed conditions due to rain was even more difficult. In such a situation, Team India needed contribution from every batsman. In this, batsmen like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav and Shivam Dubey got out early and in such a situation the team needed its star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja but he also failed.

Jadeja fails again, same situation since last 15 years

Ravindra Jadeja entered the team when Team India lost its sixth wicket at a score of 96 in the 15th over. There were still 35 balls left in the Indian innings, which could have helped them reach a good score. For this, Jadeja needed to show his strength but that did not happen and he got out on the very first ball without opening his account. In this way, once again Jadeja disappointed with his batting at the time of need in the T20 World Cup.

This story of Jadeja's batting is not new, rather he has always failed on this front. Jadeja has been a part of Team India in the T20 World Cup since 2009 and he played every time except the 2022 World Cup. He did not always get a chance to bat but even when he got it, his contribution was not very special. Jadeja has played 10 innings in the T20 World Cup so far but despite playing 99 balls, he has been able to score only 95 runs. That is, an average of 13.57 and a strike rate of only 95.95, which includes 6 fours and only 1 six.

Amazing in bowling, when will you make a splash in batting?

Obviously, Jadeja's main role is spin bowling, in which he is one of India's most successful bowlers in the history of the World Cup. He has taken 21 wickets but there have been great expectations from him in batting as well. Especially in Test cricket, the way his batting has shone in the last few years, expectations from him had increased even more. This is the reason why he has always got a place in the playing eleven, but such a performance definitely disappoints and raises questions.
