Ravindra Jadeja wins a match for India

Yeah, he did. His first ever match-winning contribution for India, at least one that people can remember.

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?


I did not have good opinion of him. But if he has many games like this , he can fix his spot. He need to bulk up for his batting because at number 6 and 7 he needs to score run a ball or more. if he keep scoring singles , he will be forgotten and replaced with another dasher. Yusuf pathan is useless against fast ball or swinging ball. He is not even good against smart spinners.

Jadeja turn out to be good , he can replace bhajji in flat track wuth his better batting skills.

yusuf ideal for t20. Nothing else.
