Team India is getting talented players one after the other. On the other hand, Ravindra Jadeja has left the arrow of his comeback. The star all-rounder, who has been out of Team India for almost 6 months, wreaked havoc in Ranji Trophy. He took only one inning to get into his old rhythm. Not one or two, Jadeja showed the way to the pavilion to 7 Tamil Nadu batters on Thursday.
After recovering from injury, the Indian Cricket Board asked Jadeja to play domestic cricket in order to prove his fitness. Jadeja remained calm in the first innings of the match between Saurashtra and Tamil Nadu. Everyone’s eyes were on him. In the first innings, he got only one success and just 15 runs came out of his bat. But, he was breathing fire in the second innings. After the end of the third day’s play, Jadeja tweeted a photo of a ball from the game, which is becoming increasingly viral.

Will Jadeja get an opportunity in Border-Gavaskar Trophy
The star all-rounder shared a photo of the same ball on Twitter, with which he took 7 wickets. Jadeja’s record was written on that ball. He took 7 wickets for 53 runs in 17.1 overs. At the same time, Jadeja wrote in the caption, “First cherry of the season”. His caption seems that he will again show the second cherry in the coming matches.
Jadeja has not played a single match for Team India since August last year. However, he has been selected for the Border Gavaskar Trophy. It can be inferred from his aggressive bowling that he can make a big contribution to the team in the Test against Australia. The star all-rounder’s return to action comes as a boost to Team India’s preparation for the 50-over World Cup, which is slated to be held in India later this year.
After whitewashing New Zealand in the ODI series, the Indian team will be back in action for the T20I series starting on Friday, January 27. They will look to replicate the 50-over format form in the T20I series as well.
