Ravindra Jadeja, India’s 21st Century Test ‘Most Valuable Player’
A player who has time and again won matches for India as well as for his franchise, not by just taking wickets but also scored crucial runs, build partnerships, been aggressive when called upon. Indian all-rounder, Jadeja has been named India’s Test ‘MVP’ and also second- most valuable player worldwide after Sri Lanka’s veteran spinner, Muttiah Muralitharan.
Jadeja on being named as India’s Test ‘MVP’ sent out a tweet, “Thankyou Wisden India for making me India’s Most Valuable Player. I would like to thank all my coaches, fans, teammates, and well-wishers for their support and aim to give my best for the country. Jai Hind.”
Jadeja had an outstanding statistical data, wherein he had played 49 tests from 2012, scoring more than 1800 runs and taking more than 210 wickets. He scored 1 century and 15 half-centuries in the longest format. Although the newly announced ‘MVP’ hasn’t stepped onto the pitch since India’s test matches against New Zealand overseas, fanatics await his wait.
Jadeja would have been in action with his franchise, Chennai Super Kings, given the fact if the IPL commenced from March 29. But even that decision is pending and the future of IPL is indefinite given the COVID-19 situation.
