Ravindra Jadeja deserves a Top 6 slot

Recommended Posts

Have been  of this opinion for a while.Today's 201 while his team was struggling at 59/3 or something like that , that too with  proven top order players Pujara & Uthappa  dismissed cheaply says a lot about his test match temperament. He avg:s a very good 45.12 in 82 first class matches  &  121 inns as of now.if we remove test match stats from these, it comes down to 3647 runs in 50 first class matches & 73 inns with 5 not outs.That means an avg: of 53.63 & runs/inns of 49.96 .This include 4 double 100s of which 3 are tripples & a total of 8 100s. Another important fact is that,  of his 15 not out scores  10 are in test cricket & 5 only in other first class matches .Yet avg:ing a mammoth 53.63 shows his very good  big inns temperament  which has until now been not properly utilized in test cricket.And he is not yet into his peak years. More over he is a left hander too.

  On the other hand Ashwin, whose first class avg: is more or less the same as his   test avg:  is being  played at the 6th slot.Ashwin avg:s 35.2 

in  first class matches other than tests with only 2 100s while Jadeja avg:s 53.63  in  first class matches other than tests with 8 100s.  Sample size  for Ashwin is 53 inns & 13 not outs where as it is 73 inns & only 5 not outs for Jadeja.And runs/inns  of Ashwin is 26.57 while that of Jadeja is 49.96 !!!!!!!!!! So basically the first class record (other than tests) of Jadeja is far better compared to that of Ashwin.Yet he plays below Ashwin in tests despite being a left hander too.

Vinay Kumar has FC bowlin avg of 23.53, much better than mohammad shami, Does that make him a better bowler? :no:

 

FC stats are not everything, players like Pandya and others have dismal FC record yet they are performing better at Intnl stage.

Plus his triple tons . Bat him 3 and can replace pujara . Pujara knees a liability anyway 

Not sure about 3 because it demands skill to tackle new ball irrespective of conditions. But a batsman avg:ing 53.63  surely deserves  atleast  6th spot & atleast in home conditions.

How shitty is the opposition bowling for Jaddu to make 200 ...mediocrity all around...

In the same match, 'the second coming of Dravid' Pujara(also the cornerstone around which India's home  victories are built) & another ex international player Uthappa were dismissed cheaply for the team to struggle at 59/3 or so.Taking all these into accounts I don't think Jadeja's effort was mediocre.

3647 runs in 50 first class matches & 73 inns with 5 not outs in 'non test' first class matches.That means an avg: of 53.63 & runs/inns of 49.96 .This include 4 double 100s of which 3 are tripples & a total of 8 100s.

 The above is the basic data that convince me about the match temperament of Jadeja.It is not a bit inflated by high percentage of not outs.On a par with any top order batsman in our first class cricket.When several  top order batsmen like Dhawan,Rohit,Pujara,Karun Nair,Mukund etc etc are given  chances after chances despite proving mediocre  in various countries Jadeja at the least deserves a chance to prove his worth.To think that Pujara despite having been mediocre as of now in 3 alien countries AUS,NZL & ENG and yet having played 50+ tests  in top order  and yet Jadeja didn't get enough chances  is a bit strange.

We live in a Bizzarre world....Sir Jadeja has 3 300's + now a 200 and he is the no.1 test bowler and test allrounder in the world. Yes let that sink in......now dvelve into this and analyze the scenario.....is this reality? are we in the matrix? WTF is going on :fear1:

 

Rohit sharma playing for India is also reality even after so many failed chances and goes missing the moment he see a little bit pressure while chasing like typical munbaikar. Let that sink in.

Jadeja has been doing a pretty good job at No.8/no.9 for India ever since his comeback.Averages 40+ with 7 fifties in 24 innings which is exceptional.

 

No need to upset that balance by promoting Jadeja up the order.

 

 

if he really is averaging that high, it's commendable. he seems to be more of a vettori-esque player (not in style and scoring, but in avg).
