One of the best fielders of all time across the globe and a spectacular all-rounder, Ravindra Jadeja turned 34 today i.e. December 6, 2022.
Ravindra Jadeja became the quickest left-arm bowler to grab 200 Test wickets in October 2019. He also was the first Indian to attain the top spot in the ICC ODI bowling rankings since Anil Kumble in 1993.
His best batting appearances came against the better sides, and they were typically followed by the swordsman’s commemoration that became his trademark. Ten years into his career, he had five Test fifties and a century against England (the latter in a 222-run partnership with Rishabh Pant at Edgbaston in 2022), as well as four half-centuries against Australia.
Jadeja sparkled in India’s Champions Trophy victory in 2013, completing with 12 wickets, two of which came in the final, where he also made an unbeaten 33.
His bowling abilities coupled with his athleticism and resilience allow the captain to utilise him in the middle overs for a long spell. His bowling standouts just like his batting and produced some match-winning spells. His first Test five-for came against Australia in Delhi in 2013, and he followed that up with 6 for 138 against South Africa in Durban, though India lost.
Ravindra Jadeja is also often called ‘Sir.’ The nickname began as a joke, but the young man from Saurashtra took all of the criticism and mock comments in his stride, turning the tables spectacularly.
His potential to entice people with his spectacular fielding and batting also lured brands. His thrilling performance on the cricket field also paved way for a fruitful commercial outing. On the birthday of one of the most celebrated Indian cricketers, let’s have a look at his endorsements, net worth and charity:
