Is Jadeja the guy for India’s search of genuine all rounder?

If Jadeja is the genuine all rounder and does well, the long time worry of the Indian team of finding an all rounder might be ended.

Indian team has a very long worry of getting players like Flintoff and Kallis if not them they even don’t have players like Brad Hodge and Shakib-al Hasan.

But this problem might be ended now as Ravindra Jadeja, RJ as i call him is doing well in ODIs for the Indian team.

The 21 year old boy played his first ODI against the Lankans this February. The Saurashtra all rounder bats left handed and bowls left arm orthodox.

Here is a career statistics of RJ.

An allrounder who bats left-hand and bowls orthodox spin, Ravindra Jadeja has been playing cricket since the age of ten. He scored 53 for West Zone on his first-class debut in the 200607 Duleep Trophy and has been an important member of the Under-19 set-up. He was part of the U-19 team that lost the final of the World Cup in 2006 to Pakistan but bowled a crucial spell of 2 for 25 to bowl India to victory in the final of the 2008 tournament in Malaysia. Jadeja was part of the Rajasthan Royals, the inaugural IPL champions. He caught the attention of the national selectors with his strong all-round showing in the 200809 Ranji Trophy – 42 wickets and 739 runs – and was promptly picked for the ODI series in Sri Lanka.
