And what a time to bowl his best stuff, after the Lankans had been rollicking at 165/1, largely thanks to Tillekeratne 'Dilscooper' Dilshan, Upul 'No-real-nickname' Tharanga, and Sanga (because it rhymes).
Harbhajan decided to bowl well on a turning track and Jadeja pulled out a can of whoop-ass.
My image of him has changed. A bit.
I always thought of him as a limited-over specialist spinner, the Johan Botha type who fires it in around off stump, and who can slam the ball a bit.
Now he's a pretty decent all-rounder.
A few months ago we all hated his guts for his really slow innings in a T20. We all wanted him to be dropped.
Now he's a decent all-rounder who deserves his place instead of Yusuf Pathan.
I'm an Indian cricket fan, though. My opinion could only be as constant as the next match.
Mendis got served today, by the way. Remember my post?
