Ravindra Jadeja is a match-winner with both bat and ball. His slow left-arm deliveries trouble the batsman due to his tight lines and variable pace, and when the pitch turns, he is a nightmare for the batters. His batting at number 7 comes handy in the death overs. He can play both the waiting game as well as the aggressive one, which is naturally suitable for him.

Jadeja is the biggest asset for any captain. He was simply brilliant under the leadership of MS Dhoni.

Kohli mostly uses him in the Test matches but he played a major role in the 2019 World Cup squad due to his all-around abilities and not to mention his fabulous fielding.
