Ravindra Jadeja rose to the top spot in the latest ICC Test rankings for all rounders following his 70 run knock and seven wickets in the second Test against Sri Lanka in Colombo. However, he will be missing for the third Test in Pallekele.
Ravindra Jadeja was suspended for one match for accumulating six demerit points in a 24 month period. His last infraction had come at Indore last year against New Zealand when he was charged for running on the pitch.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli congratulated Ravindra Jadeja for his fine show against Sri Lanka in the second Test as the cricketer from Saurashtra claimed the top spot in ICC Test all-rounder rankings.
Meanwhile R Ashwin has been removed from his second spot in ICC Test rankings for bowlers with Jimmy Anderson’s seven wickets propelling him to World No 2.
Implemented from October last year, players will be slapped with demerits points if they breach the ICC’s code of conduct. Punishments, usually fines, will remain for minor offences such as showing dissent and using obscene language.
“I enjoy keeping to Ashwin-Jadeja on such wickets. The wicket had some spots where the ball was getting more bounce, almost like a bouncer off spinners as well. I was getting up early for the bounce, but pacers weren’t bouncing it as much”, says Wriddhiman Saha.
Jadeja did not end the Test on a happy note as he was slapped with a one-match ban and a fine for dangerous play by the International Cricket Council (ICC). This effectively rules him out of the final Test starting Saturday in Pallekele.
On a rapidly deteriorating SSC pitch, the left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja broke through Sri Lanka’s resistance to give India Test and series victory in Colombo. He bowled 23 overs on the fourth day and prised out five wickets.
The six demerit points on Ravindra Jadeja’s record will stay on his disciplinary record. If Jadeja reaches the next threshold of eight or more demerit points within a 24-month period, then they will be converted into four suspension points.
Ravindra Jadeja shared his first impression on meeting Shane Warne and how he innocently didn’t know why he called him ‘rockstar’. Further, the World No 1 ranked bowler expresses his feelings after seeing his daughter for the first time.
India’s Ravindra Jadeja and R Ashwin remain no.1 and no.2 ranked bowlers respectively while Virat Kohli maintains his no.4 position in batsmen’s list. Moeen Ali however has moved up the table after a brilliant all-round show in Lord’s Test.
