KEY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Ravindra Jadeja picked 6 wickets in the Asia Cup 2023.
  • However, he managed to score just 25 runs throughout the tournament.
  • Gautam Gambhir has said that Jadeja needs to perform well with the bat.
India absolutely decimated Sei Lanka in the final to lift their record-extending 8th Asia Cup title in 2023. This was a big statement for the team especially with the World Cup 2023 just around the corner, with most of the star players finding form. Ravindra Jadeja, too, played a vital role in India's Asia Cup 2023 campaign, picking up 6 wickets in 6 games. He also overtook Irfan Pathan to become India's highest wicket-taker in the competition's history while also breaching the 200-wicket mark in ODIs. However, former India opener Gautam Gambhir has fired a warning to the star all-rounder before the World Cup 2023.
In an interaction with Star Sports, Gautam Gambhir said that even through Ravindra Jadeja shines with the ball, he needs to win matches with the bat lower down the order, to have a greater impact on the game. He also said that if Ishan Kishan bats at no.5, that too raises a lot question marks.
"We know he can bowl 10 overs on any given day on any surface. He is an amazing fielder but he will have to contribute better as a batter at No. 7 because you cannot go in with just six batters," Gambhir said.
"If Ishan Kishan plays at No. 5, there are question marks there as well. So Ravindra Jadeja will have to win matches with batting because you might have a situation where you need 80 or 90 runs in 10 overs and the No. 6 and No. 7 batters might be playing together," he added.
Ravindra Jadeja did not perform well with the bat in the Asia Cup 2023, as he amassed just 25 runs. However, during the course of the tournament, Jadeja became only the second India to do the double of 200 wickets and 2000 runs in ODIs after the legendary Kapil Dev.
