    Jadeja should bat at number 5 position.If Rayudu/Kaif/Hemang Badani/Dinesh mongia can bat at 5,with Raina at the crucial number 7 position where both impulsive and strategic decisions are to be taken as per situation of the match.Why cannot Ravindra Jadeja. Jadeja has very decent average and strike rate in ODIs and some outstanding performances in domestics. Jadeja has some exciting performances in Champions trophy and other matches.He is a match winner for sure.Also he has found his rhythm back in current Ranji Trophy 2015-16. Axar patel should first play enough domestic matches.Right now Axar does not promise to be a player who can bowl 10 overs or can contribute with bat against good teams.And God only knows why Stuart ROGER Binny is in the side at the age of 32 despite his ordinary performances in domestics and incapability to bowl more than 2-3 overs in ODIs.
