Ravindra Jadeja has been one of the most cherished all-rounders. Today’s match is proof of what Jadeja can do for the team. Even though all his efforts in today’s match have gone in vain but he made sure that India didn’t lose with a bigger margin.
Firstly, let us appreciate his bowling in today’s match. Jadeja bowled 10 overs, ceding just 35 runs with an economy rate of 3.5. He was the reason that New Zealand was unable to take the target to 300. Otherwise, it would not have been possible to stop them below 300 as Jasprit Bumrah was quite expensive today. Bumrah gave away 64 runs in 10 overs without taking a single wicket.
Jadeja has always been a fantastic fielder and this run out of Jimmy Neesham is a perfect example. The second inning saw India struggling badly but Jadeja came to the rescue. He and Navdeep Saini tried their level best to take India towards a win. Even though it all went in vain, Saini’s skills as a batsman came into limelight as he scored 45 of 49 deliveries.
Today’s match was also a reminder of what happened in the world cup 2019’s semifinals. We hope the team wins the next match, which will be held on the 11th of February.
