Vaughan went on to say that if anyone wants a great hitter, he should go to Chris Gayle’s strength and Virat Kohli’s finesse, however, if someone desires to develop a complete cricketer, he must look to Ravindra Jadeja.
“He [Ravindra Jadeja] is outstanding, he’s just got everything. If you are building a T20 cricketer, if you are building a batter, you go for Chris Gayle’s power or Virat Kohli’s finesse. But if you are looking to build a cricketer from scratch, you’ll almost start with Ravindra Jadeja because he offers you everything,” said Michael Vaughan.
Jadeja can play the anchor role if you lose early wickets: Michael Vaughan
Michael Vaughan also stated that Jadeja is an excellent fielder as well as a fantastic left-arm spin bowler. The 46-year-old Vaughan went on to say that Jadeja can serve as an anchor if his team is losing quick wickets even while smashing the bowling from the very 1st ball he plays. Vaughan continued by describing Jadeja as a “perfect T20 cricketer.”
”He is an unbelievable fielder, he can bowl brilliant left-arm spin, if there is an element of turn in the surface, he is as good as any. Obviously, with the bat, he can play the anchor role if you lose early wickets, he can also come in with 15 balls to go and pretty much go on from ball one. He is the perfect T20 cricketer,” concluded Vaughan.
CSK will come back and play on 7th October, as they face the Punjab Kings (PBKS) at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium. He is an IPL specialist, having appeared in a stunning 197 IPL games. In addition to scoring 2371 runs with the bat, Jadeja has claimed 124 wickets with his left-arm spinning.
