New Delhi. Ravindra Jadeja has made a comeback in a special way after injury. He stayed away from international cricket for about 5 months due to surgery. He returned from the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia (IND vs AUS). Left-arm spinner Jadeja was the architect of victory in both the matches and became the player of the match. In the first test, apart from playing an unmatched inning of 70 runs, he also took 7 wickets. And in the second match in Delhi, Jadeja got 10 wickets. He is on top with 17 wickets. The third match is to be played in Indore from March 1.
Ravindra Jadeja’s father worked in a security agency and wanted to make him an army officer, but this could not happen. Means Jadeja could not fulfill his father’s dream. The death of his mother in 2005 shook Ravindra Jadeja to the core. He started thinking of leaving even the cricketer. Later his sister took care of him. He was the vice-captain of the team that won the T20 World Cup in 2008. Whereas Virat Kohli was leading the team. Right now both the veteran cricketers are performing well together for the senior team as well. Ravindra Jadeja married Rivaba Solanki in 2016. During the marriage, aerial firing was done and even a complaint was lodged with the police regarding this matter.
International debut in 2009
Ravindra Jadeja, 34, made his international debut in 2009. And in 2012, he got down to play the first Test. In 2012, CSK, captained by MS Dhoni, included him in their team. He joined Gujraj Lions in 2016, as CSK was banned for 2 years. Later he again joined the CSK team. Due to the excellent performance, MS Dhoni started calling Ravindra Jadeja Sir and he also made an identity with this name.
Before IPL 2022, he was then made the captain of Chennai Super Kings, but resigned after poor performance. After this there was news of a dispute between him and Dhoni. In such a situation, there was news of his release from the team. But CSK did not do so and retained him once again. Now after the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, he would like to take his performance forward in IPL 2023 as well.
