Countdown to Jadeja's 200 test wickets and 2000 test runs

Recommended Posts

Jadeja is nearing the rare double of an Indian cricketer scoring 2000 test runs and claiming 200 test wickets. Only Kapil Dev, Anil Kumble and Ravichandran Ashwin are the only three cricketers in that category. Jadeja too is not very far away from being one of the few Indian cricketers to achieve this rare test double of having scored 2000 + test runs with the bat and test wicket tally of 200. Looks like he will easily achieve 200 test wickets before the end of calendar year 2019. Somewhere in middle of 2020, we can expect him to score 2000 test runs as well. Good luck to him :cheer:

He has to be really lucky.. we seem to have Kuldeep and Ashwin so don't know if he is going to get many chances with Hardik taking the AR position

Jadeja has been a far better bowler (and batsman) than Ashwin in last 2-3 years. Ashwin's hip problems hasn't been sorted during this period and the spate of injuries does not look like coming to an end anytime soon. Plus Jadeja's accuracy will always give him a preference over Ashwin if it came to choosing between the two. In any case, at home all three can play together as well.

Jadeja should be given a considerable  run at 6th position in batting . He should replace Rahane. Look at record of both  in their last 34 inns.

Jadeja is way ahead .Even if 45 avg: is a bit inflated  by high ratio of not outs, it is still worth a 41.00  other wise .Dig deeper w.r.t home/away, SENA performance etc, etc Jadeja's  performance has been even better . And what not , on several occasions he was forced to throw his wkt away  by blind slogging for the team cause. Other wise, I am quite confident he would have  genuinely avg:ed 45.Add his bowling & fielding he  deserves his  chances at 6th position.

Even if he plays for two years for most matches , he is likely to get this double. It is also possible that after few years, Kuldeep, Chahal, Ashwin will also be dropped / rested / injured from squad or playing 11. This double is bound to happen, the only thing to see how soon this will be achieved. What is doubtful is 300 test wickets and 3000 test runs.

The point is preference.. if Dhoni was captain, Jaddu would have surely come in.. but not sure how much virat likes him especially if he doesn't have luxury to go with multiple spinners
