Ravindra Jadeja – Test Wickets – Home/Away & Country-wise Analysis

Here we have someone who has been an example of how good a player can nurture himself, from a young IPL spinner (spotted out by Shane Warne) who could be decent with the bat to the World’s No.1 all-rounder in Test cricket. He has come through a big circle, and you can get a picture of this scintillating journey through Jadeja’s year-wise Test wicket numbers.

The best appreciation you can give Ravindra Jadeja is you cannot think of a strong current winning Indian Test XI in overseas conditions (SENA Countries) without Jadeja in it, thanks to his excellent batting displays against the threatening fast bowlers in the pace-friendly conditions in the last few years. This is a fantastic achievement for someone well-known for his ball-spinning skills.

Even though you can name him a valuable lower-order batter, one thing you can tag Jadeja with is his bunch of 5-fors and his partnership with Ravichandran Ashwin in the home conditions.
