Ravindra Jadeja Leading Wicket Taker in West Indies 2016
Question in detailWhen predicting the leading wicket taker in India Vs West Indies Test series, India has a few names in the squad to claim the title, including Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja. Jadeja is a quality off-spinner and a left-hand batsman to bat in at 6th or 7th. Jadeja was not a part of the Indian squad in the first Test, but can join the team in the remaining matches. If he joins the squad in the next match and continues to play the rest two as well, he will have a chance to become the leading wicket taker in India Vs West Indies Test series. However, with Ashwin already taking 7 wickets in the first Test, Jadeja's chances to grab the title may sound redundant. Irrespective of whether he becomes the most wicket taker or not, he is ready to cast a spell with his spin bowling on the Caribbean tracks.
With India beating West Indies by an innings and 92 runs in the first Test match, Indian bowlers are now basking in the radiant glory. They looked faster and sharper than the Caribbean bowlers in the first Test. The first innings of the match was dominated by the Indian fast bowlers, while the second innings witnessed spinners rising sharply, especially Ravichandran Ashwin who took 7 wickets. So far, he is the leading wicket taker in India Vs West Indies Test series. If the tracks remain spin-friendly in the remaining matches as well, Indian spinners may play more aggressively, giving their team more wins.
Will Ravindra Jadeja become the leading wicket taker in India Vs West Indies Test series?
