Ravindra Jadeja has established himself as one of the greatest all-rounders India has ever produced, displaying exceptional skills across formats. With his outstanding spin bowling, impeccable fielding, and steadily improving batting abilities, Jadeja has become a regular fixture in India’s playing eleven.

He has also been an important asset for his Indian Premier League team, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), where he is currently playing in the 2023 season. There were doubts about whether Ravindra Jadeja would continue with CSK after his captaincy controversy last season, as the role was taken away from him and given back to the former captain MS Dhoni.

“I have told Mahi bhai this as well that, meri cricket ki journey Mahendra Singh Chouhan aur Mahendra Singh Dhoni ke beech me hi rahi hai. That is where my cricket journey started. I started in 1996 when I was eight years old in Jamnagar. Even now I sometimes go that ground to meet sir, practice cannot happen because there are about 300 to 400 kids there so it can become a big crowd,”

“When I started out I wanted to become a fast bowler. I used to think seeing fast bowlers sending in bouncers that I would also be able to do that but I never had the speed. My coach Mahendra Singh Chouhan, he told me that you are not tall enough or not fast enough so please don’t be under any illusions. At the time I thought, yes I don’t have the height that is required. Then I started bowling left arm spin,”

“At the time we were not able to bat too much because the turf wicket was not good. On the other hand when the ball hits a rough and turns a lot, your interest to do that again increases. If you see that you are getting the batter out with big spin, your interest in spin bowling increases and so I started getting more interested in it. It was upto us to make and maintain the wicket and the batter himself had to roll the wickets and stuff. So I thought I don’t want to do all that, I will just stand there with the ball in hand and when the wicket is ready, I will bowl,”

Ravindra Jadeja and Chennai Super Kings have been in great form this season in the Indian Premier League, The team have won 4 out of their 6 encounters and will be looking to continue the winning run when they face Kolkata Knight Riders in their upcoming fixture at the Eden Gardens.
