Huh. Ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. Nehra said Jadeja could well be captain Virat Kohli, team mentor MS Dhoni and head coach Ravi Shastri going into crunch games. He praised Jadeja for improving his batting and talking to him. Cricbuzz said, “Even with the ball, he was effective. He took a crucial wicket and conceded just 21 runs in four overs. He displayed the kind of bowling he is known for. And so far as he batted. As for, he has done exceptionally well in the last 2 years. He hit the famous Krishna for a big blow to finish the match. We talk of MS Dhoni, Andre Russell and Kieron Pollard, but Ravindra Jadeja. Did the same today. He has done well with the bat at CSK and in Tests. His batting is finally coming in nicely.”

Nehra talked about the role that Jadeja can be asked to play in the T20 World Cup, which will be highly dependent on the situation and circumstances.

“It will be interesting to see whether India adds Ravindra Jadeja ahead of him or as the third spinner. I would say that in the situations we have seen so far, that would be the first name on the mind of Coach Shastri, Captain Kohli and Captain Kohli. Mentor Dhoni when it comes to deciding the XI,” Nehra said.


Nehra, however, was still not sure how Jadeja would be included in the playing XI due to the presence of spin-bowling stalwarts in the team. However, he said that it would be difficult for the team management to ignore Jadeja.

“If you talk about the Indian team they have been used differently. For the T20 World Cup, India has picked five spinners, so it remains to be seen. If the pitch has assists then Jadeja A no-brainer. But if you have a flat pitch, they can play Varun Chakraborty and Rahul Chahar,” he concluded.
