Ravindra Jadeja Returns To Action With A Seven-Wicket Haul

Ravindra Jadeja, an all-arounder for the Indian cricket team, made his long-awaited return to competitive cricket with a magnificent seven-wicket haul for Saurashtra during their Ranji Trophy match against Tamil Nadu. Jadeja’s performance was a highlight of Saurashtra’s victory.

In honour of the event, Jadeja, who had to sit out a significant portion of the cricket season owing to an injury, marked the occasion by posting a picture to Instagram of the match ball, which included his bowling numbers written on it, as well as his own match hat.

The photograph was accompanied by the caption “First cherry of the season. #redcherry,” which read.

On Thursday, Jadeja made a sensational return from an injury by taking seven wickets in the second innings of the Ranji Trophy match that was being played against Tamil Nadu. This was his first game after the injury.

In Tamil Nadu’s second innings, the left-arm spinner took seven wickets while only allowing 53 runs to score off of the 17.1 overs that he bowled. He was able to do this by running down the batting order.

In the first innings, Jadeja was only successful in taking one wicket, and he was under a lot of pressure to perform well so that he might be considered for a spot in the playing eleven for the next Border-Gavaskar series against Australia.

Jadeja claimed the wickets of Sai Sudharsan, Narayan Jagadeesan, M Shahrukh Khan, Baba Aparajith, Baba Indrajith, Pradosh Ranjan Paul, Vijay Shankar, Ajith Ram and Manimaran Siddharth.

During the course of his stint, the star all-rounder showed that he was more than prepared and in the groove to be selected for the playing eleven against the Baggy Greens in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy match. During the opening innings of play for his team, Jadeja contributed 15 runs of his own.

His selection to the playing eleven had been conditional on his fitness and physical condition in domestic cricket by the national selectors before they made their decision.

In September of 2017, Jadeja was forced to withdraw from the Asia Cup in order to undergo surgery on his right knee. Because of the injury, he was unable to participate in the ICC Twenty20 World Cup in Australia, where India was eliminated in the semifinals after suffering a humiliating ten-wicket defeat at the hands of England.

The selectors have decided to include him in the 17-man Test team for the first half of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, which will begin on February 9 in Nagpur.

The second match of the series will take place in Delhi, and then the last two matches will take place in Dharamsala and Ahmedabad respectively.

In the Ranji game that is currently being played, Saurashtra is seeking to score 266 runs. Because it is such a challenging proposition, they will have their job cut out for them.

The total number of runs scored by Saurashtra in their first innings was 192. On the final day of the pursuit, skipper Jadeja will play a pivotal role in determining the winner.
