Ravindra Jadeja Leading Wicket Taker in Ind vs NZ Test
Question in detailPlaced 6th in the international Test ranking of all-rounders, Ravindra Jadeja in the opening Test against New Zealand at Kanpur proves why he is there in top ten. On a track that supported spinners more than pacers, Jadeja cast a spell with his quality spin, taking 6 crucial wickets in the match. He continued to run a loop around the Kiwi batsmen to get them out. Not just bowling, he also took the responsibilities on his shoulders when India needed some quicker knocks in the middle. Impressive with bat as well, Jadeja remained not out in both the innings scoring 42* and 50* respectively. With 6 wickets in pocket, Jadeja currently stands second as the leading wicket taker in the series. His fabulous performance earned him the man of the match award too. With two Tests remaining, Jadeja has a chance to become both the highest wicket taker and the man of the series in India Vs New Zealand Test series.
Jadeja made his debut as a batsman. But, bowling under the shadow of Ravichandran Ashwin, Jadeja has emerged more a spinner than a batsman over the years. When bowling with Ashwin, he leaves every opposition answerless. Known to bowl on right line and length, Jadeja's potential to become the leading wicket taker and to claim the man of the series cannot be disregarded.
Will Ravindra Jadeja become the man of the series in the ongoing India Vs New Zealand Test series?
