India's ace all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is acknowledged as the best all-rounder in the world of cricket at the moment. Ravindra Jadeja is excellent in all the departments of the game. He can not only do the trick with his ball, but he can also win matches with the bat, and moreover, he is a brilliant fielder as well. His batting prowess has improved a lot over the years. Considering his performance in the last few years, Jadeja has become a reliable lower-middle order batsman for team India in all the game formats. 

Ravindra Jadeja has proved over the years that he can not only smash boundaries and sixes, but if required, he can also slow down things in the middle and hold on to one end in Tests. In the 2015 ODI World Cup, Jadeja ended the competition with just 9 wickets from 8 games. But, unfortunately, he didn't also contribute much with the bat down the order. Recalling that incident, Jadeja revealed how then captain MS Dhoni came to his rescue during the mega event Down Under and helped him turn it around.

Ravindra Jadeja has picked up 437 scalps and scored 4,582 runs overall

Ravindra Jadeja made his international debut back in 2009. He had faced a lot of issues while batting when he started his international career. Jadeja's shot selection was also criticised at one point, and that also saw him being out of the team. However, the 32-year-old has been at his best since the 2016-17 season, and there has been no looking back for the spin-bowling all-rounder. He has continued to perform brilliantly in all departments of the game across formats. So far, Ravindra Jadeja has picked up 437 scalps and scored 4,582 runs overall.

Meanwhile, Ravindra Jadeja is prepared to make India return after missing out on international cricket due to an injury. The all-rounder is expected to feature in the WTC final against NZ, which is going to take place next month. Talking about Jadeja's performance in IPL, he was a star for Chennai Super Kings in the IPL 2021 season. He showcased his skills in all three departments. The entire team India is currently quarantining in Mumbai before heading for the England tour. India will be facing NZ in the World Test Championship final and a five-Test series against the Joe Root-led side.
