Comeback-man Jadeja has proved himself, says Rohit
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.
