Virat Kohli, captain of the India cricket team, along with his predecessor MS Dhoni are often credited as the men behind India’s rise in fielding standards of across all formats.
According to Sridhar, Jadeja is the best fielder in the current setup, and on Thursday, Kohli settled the debate once and for all as to who is the best Team India fielder once and for all.
The skipper made his choice after the official Instagram handle of StarSports asked the cricket fans to pick the best fielder between Kohli and Jadeja.
Jadeja is not only a prolific allrounder but is equally deadly when it comes to getting rid of opponents with his bullet arm.
Kohli has often remained in awe of of Jadeja’s fielding exploits. Last year, the Indian skipper had admitted that he was not the fastest in the team.
After winning their maiden Day/Night Test against Bangladesh, skipper Kohli posted a photo on Twitter with Ravindra Jadeja and Rishabh Pant with the caption, “Love group conditioning sessions. And when Jaddu is in the group, it’s almost impossible to outrun him”.
