Why is Ravindra Jadeja the target? Reason for flop at number 5 revealed

IND Vs ENG: Star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja flopped badly while playing at number 5 in the Ranchi Test. Former England captain Alastair Cook has explained the reason behind Jadeja’s failure. Cook believes Jadeja couldn’t decide whether to attack or play in defence. However, Dhruv Jurel made Cook a fan with his excellent performance. Cook says Jurel bailed out India in Ranchi Test.

With Virat Kohli and KL Rahul not playing, Jadeja has been promoted to No. 5. In Ranchi, Jadeja could only play innings of 12 and 4 runs. Cook has criticized Jadeja’s game. Cook said, “Jadeja should bat.” After the Ranchi Test, it has become clear that Jadeja should not bat too high. Jadeja has the ability to score runs. But when a pressure situation arises, Jadeja cannot decide whether to play attacking cricket or defensive cricket."text-align: justify;">Jurel played an excellent innings

However, Cook described Jadeja as a world-class all-rounder. Cook said: “Jadeja is the number one all-rounder. But he can’t bat at number 5. Jadeja is not taking any chances. Jadeja creates pressure on other players. Jurrell is different. Jurel has balance. He’s a great player.”

Let us tell you that Jurel proved to be a winning hero for Team India in the Ranchi Test. Jurel played an innings of 90 runs in the first innings. Jurel scored an unbeaten 39 runs in the second inning. Jurel also received the “Player of the Game” title. Thanks to Jurel, India won the 5 Test match series in Ranchi itself 3-1. The final match of the series is scheduled to be played in Dharamshala from March 7.
