Jadeja praises India’s star as having “unique” potential and advises the BCCI to “use him as he is” because “8/10 times, he’ll end the game.”
Jadeja complimented the India star, saying that “8/10 times he’ll get you three wickets there and clinch the game.”
With a 2-1 victory against Sri Lanka in the three-match T20I series, Team India kicked off the new year with a bang. The young team, captained by Hardik Pandya, put up a solid effort all around. If we reflect on some of the many positives, Shivam Mavi’s amazing India debut, Axar Patel’s flawless replacement for Ravindra Jadeja, and Suryakumar Yadav’s dominance at the plate come to mind.
Mavi had taken four wickets in his first India match and had established himself as a significant contributor in the series opener, which India won by two runs. On the other side, Axar’s all-around performance, which included his batting, bowling, and fielding, earned him the title of player of the series.
The second game saw Suryakumar Yadav smash a half-century, but India fell short by 16 runs. Then, in the third and final T20I, he put up an even better performance by slamming a tonne, which was third in T20Is.
Along with the three players mentioned, Umran Malik, India’s newest pace wonder, also had a fantastic performance. The Jammu and Kashmir pacer finished with seven wickets from his 11 overs bowled during the series, making him the T20Is’ top wicket-taker.
In addition, he recorded the greatest speed an Indian pacer has ever reached, 155 kph, on the speed gun during the second T20I.
Almost everyone praised Malik for his outstanding performance, and former India batter Ajay Jadeja was equally as delighted with the kid. The former cricket player lavished admiration on Malik and compared the pacer to India veteran Javagal Srinath.
There hasn’t been an Indian bowler that bowls like he does right now, running in, that I have seen in a very long time. The last one I can think of is Srinath.
Try to use this man just as he is since he has something special to offer. You bring Umran Malik when the tail appears. He mentioned during a conversation on Cricbuzz that he will grab you three wickets there and end the game 8/10 times.
