A star-player like Ravindra Jadeja doesn't require any introduction, he is one of the finest all-rounder India ever had and is one of the foremost fielder in the world right now. He is born on 6th December 1988 in Navagam, Gujarat and has turned 34 today. The sort of talent he possesses there is no doubt why we call him as “Sir Ravindra Jadeja” .
On this special occasion let's look at some of his finest innings of his cricketing career:
- One of his finest innings came against Sri Lanka during the first innings of the Mohali Test in March 2022, he played an unbeaten knock of 175 runs and also clinched 9 wickets in the match by giving away 87 runs, his high quality innings helped India in crushing The Lions by an inning and 222 runs and was also awarded as the Man of the Match.
- A nail biting innings of Jadeja came to be from the losing side. He scored a nail biting 77 runs from 59 balls during the 2019 ODI World Cup semi-final against New Zealand in Old Trafford, Manchester. He came to bat when India needed him the most as half of India’s batting order was in the pavilion he was the only one who gave hope to the 1.3 billion supporters that they can still win the match with Dhoni and Jadeja being on the strike, but the fate has decided something that they wouldn’t have thought about.
- During the Australia tour in 2022 Jadeja played a tremendous innings in the first T20 match in Canberra when he smashed the balls all around the ground and scored 44 runs of 23 deliveries including 5 fours and one six with a strike rate of 191.30, his innings helped India to put a decent total of 160 on board for Aussies to chase and they ended up winning the match by 11 runs.
