Jadeja is the best fielder in the world says Michael Clarke
Former Australian skipper and batsman Michael Clarke termed Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja as the best fielder in the world. Clarke, who was the captain of the Australian team back in 2015 World Cup, was also a renowned and brilliant fielder himself.
This statement is indeed a great boost for the 30-year-old all-rounder and also for the Indian team as team India was more or less inferior to other teams as per fielding abilities in the past years.
However, with the advancement of time, under the captaincy of both Dhoni and Kohli, the focus on the fielding was emphasized to a great extent and as a result, an improved Indian team evolved in front of the whole world as a powerful opposition.
Ravindra Jadeja, who was also a part of the Indian team in the 2013 and 2017 Champions Trophy held at England played an important role in the team. Jadeja is that kind of player who will contribute a lot while fielding which in fact plays a very important role in winning a match.
Also, Jadeja is a very economical bowler with wicket-taking abilities and he also scores some handy runs for the team lower down the order establishing himself as a match winner for team India in all the three departments.
Clarke, while doing commentary during the warm-up match between India and Bangladesh said, “I think there’s no one better than him in world cricket, whether saving runs in the outfield or taking a difficult catch or direct hits, he’s just superb.”
Jadeja scored a quick half-century against New Zealand in the first warm-up game while took an important wicket against Bangladesh in the second warm up. Thus, all eyes will be on Ravindra Jadeja as he will be an important factor for the men in blue in this mega tournament.
