The Amazing Mr. Jaddu


By Gaurang
October 14 2018

Once called a non-wicket taking bowler by the legendary Erapalli Prasanna early in his career, Jadeja now has 185 wickets in 39 Tests to Prasanna's own 189 in 49 Tests... So even legends can be fooled.  Look at his numbers and compare them to all left arm bowlers pace or spin who have taken 100 or more Test wickets...

You find he has the HIGHEST number of wickets at the 39 Test stage.... and in case you are wondering where those who have more career Test wickets than him were in their 39th Test compared to the 185 wickets that Jadeja has scalped... Here is the list of ALL TIME GREATS with more wickets than him who TRAIL BEHIND HIM...in descending order of number of wickets in their 39th Test...

In recent series against West Indians he had batting average of 100 and bowling average of under 20.

Just slammed 178 for Saurashtra...his 10th First Class century... after taking 4-50 odd...in second round of Ranji Trophy...

The guy is a one-man team...smiling smiley

Followed up his first innings heroics by helping Saurashtra win the match outright... first picking up 3 more wickets then guiding them home with a crucial 40 odd on a crumbling pitch... NICE!
