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”.
