6 Records Held By Ravindra Jadeja

Ravindra Jadeja is, currently, arguably the best all-format all conditions all-rounder. He is a sure first-name on the team sheet, whether in red-ball cricket or limited-overs games, across conditions.

Since making his Test debut, Jadeja has been known as a bowling all-rounder. However, he has upped his batting incredibly over the past few years: in the Indian team, since the start of 2019, Jadeja’s Test batting average of 48 is only better Rohit Sharma’s 57 (Washington Sundar averages 66 but in has played only 4 Tests).

Jadeja brings a great balance to India’s lineup in both forms of the game. In Test cricket, he’s a match-winner at home with both bat and ball, while overseas he is a strong fifth bowling option, and provides batting solidity. In limited-overs cricket, Jadeja is a proven finisher with the bat and plays the containing role with the ball very well.

Here we look at Ravindra Jadeja’s top 5 records:

1.Only cricketer to take 9 or more wickets and score over 150 runs in a Test

Jadeja’s game against Sri Lanka in Mohali epitomised his rise in Test cricket. He slammed his career-best 175* and then snared 9 wickets, becoming the first-ever cricketer to take 9 or more wickets and score over 150 runs in the same Test.

Before this, the previous-highest aggregate for a player taking nine or more wickets in a Test match was 143, by Shakib Al Hasan against Zimbabwe in 2014: he took 10 for 124 in the match, and scored 143 runs (137 and 6) over two innings.

2. Jadeja became only the second-ever Indian player to score a century while also taking nine or more wickets in a Test; his spin partner R Ashwin is the other Indian: the off-spinner scored 103 and took 9 for 190 against West Indies in Mumbai in 2011.

There are only five other instances in world cricket of a player scoring a hundred and taking 9 or more wickets.

3. While Jadeja was recognized as a bowling all-rounder in the Test side until a few years ago, he broke down the door with staggering batting displays in domestic cricket. Jadeja is the first Indian player and 8th overall to score 3 first-class triple centuries!

4. Jadeja joins Tendulkar and Kumble in the elite list

Jadeja had a great game in Mohali as he shattered plenty of records. One of which was of most Player of the Match awards at a particular venue. This was Jadeja’s third Player of the Match award in the 4 Tests he has played in Mohali, the previous two coming against South Africa (2015) and England (2016). Only two other Indians have won three or more awards at a venue – Sachin Tendulkar in Chennai (four), and Anil Kumble in Delhi (three).
