Ravindra Jadeja goes rogue: All-rounder defies calls from coaches, teammates to continue batting

While known primarily for his exceptional bowling and fielding skills, Ravindra Jadeja extended batting practice has sparked speculation about his preferences.

India vs England 5th Test (IND vs ENG): Ahead of the crucial fifth Test against England, Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has grabbed headlines for his unusual training regime. Ignoring calls from coaches and teammates, Jadeja reportedly engaged in two extended batting sessions at the nets in Dharamsala, raising questions about his priorities.

Passion for batting?

While known primarily for his exceptional bowling and fielding skills, Ravindra Jadeja extended batting practice as per the Indian Express has sparked speculation about his preferences.

This dedication is not entirely new for the all-rounder, known for his extended net sessions. However, the timing, amidst crucial team preparations, has surprised some.

A look at Ravindra Jadeja performance

Despite the recent focus on his batting, Jadeja has been a vital contributor to India’s success in the ongoing series against England. He is the only batsman in the Anthony de Mello Trophy to score over 200 runs in less than six innings, showcasing his batting prowess. Notably, his century in the third Test at Rajkot proved instrumental in India setting a strong total.

Bowling Brilliance

Beyond his batting, Jadeja has been equally impressive with the ball. He shares the lead for most wickets taken in the series alongside Jasprit Bumrah, with 17 scalps. His five-wicket haul in the second innings of the Rajkot Test earned him the Player of the Match award.

Focus on India vs England 5th Test

While Jadeja’s extended batting practice has become a talking point, the true test lies ahead. With the series poised at 2-2, all eyes will be on him to deliver an all-round performance in the final Test, helping India clinch a 4-1 series victory.
