Ravindra Jadeja: From a villain to a hero
The selectors and team management overlooked Suresh Raina’s century knock in the Irani Cup, giving preference to Jadeja to fill the all-rounder slot in the Indian squad for the home series against Australia. Questions were being raised over the preference given to him as a left-arm spinner in the Test team over the in-form Ojha on a turning track like Chennai’s. Ravindra Jadeja could probably set the record for being the most ridiculed cricketer on social networking sites. However, he has silenced his critics in style! He might have not contributed heavily with the bat in the limited opportunities he got, but Jadeja’s left-arm spin has been mighty impressive. From a ‘villain’ to a national hero overnight, fortunes have changed dramatically for this Saurashtra all-rounder
