Ravindra Jadeja’s century, Washington Sundar’s ton and Bengal’s dominant performance over Chattisgarh are the highlights of the day.
Ravindra Jadeja made a statement with an unbeaten 150 for Saurashtra on the first day of their Group B match against Jammu and Kashmir.
This is the second time that Jaddu’s Food Field has faced action from the RMC.
Ravindra Jadeja will miss the opening Ranji match for Saurashtra against Haryana scheduled to begin on October 6. He replaced by Jay Chauhan in the squad.
Ravindra Jadeja posted an obscure photo of him on his official Instagram account that read, “Had a really great “Night Out” last night, according to my police report.#rajputboy.”
Ravindra Jadeja is set to replace an injured Axar Patel in the squad for the first three ODIs against Australia. The series is scheduled to begin on Sunday. The first match of the five-ODI series will take place in Chennai.
India should use their best spinners when playing against a team like Austalia as the wickets at home are going to suit the spinners and they should be used, former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin has said about R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.
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.
