Dubai: Back into the ODI scheme of things af­ter more than a year, Ravin­dra Jadeja made a strong state­ment in the Asia Cup and In­dia’s stand-in cap­tain Ro­hit Sharma feels the all-rounder has proved him­self.

Ro­hit said Jadeja showed his burn­ing de­sire to make a strong come­back and grabbed the op­por­tu­nity with both hands af­ter be­ing side­lined from white-ball cricket for close to 15 months.

“When you are out of the team you have that fire in­side, you have that burn­ing de­sire where you want to make a come­back and prove your­self rather than prov­ing any­one else,” Ro­hit said while prais­ing Jadeja.

“I think he has proved him­self in this tour­na­ment that he is much bet­ter than what he was be­fore. His bowl­ing, bat­ting and field­ing abil­i­ties are very cru­cial to the team,” he added.

Jadeja also re­minded ev­ery­one of his field­ing abil­i­ties with a great run out of Mo­ham­mad Mithun in the fi­nal.

“What he did on the field, that run out, I think that was the turn­ing point of the match,” Ro­hit said.
