India vs England: Sehwag pointed out Jadeja’s importance in the batting lineup as he improved his batting in the recent past. India played four pacers and one spinner – Ravindra Jadeja in the first Test.
“Ravindra Jadeja is an important player of this team, especially when we talk about Test match cricket because firstly, he bowls 25-30 overs and secondly, he comes and bats at No.7 or No.8. When batsmen get out, he scores the crucial runs. He scored 56 runs in this Test match, they were crucial runs. Probably, because of his 56 runs only India got the lead and went ahead of England,” Sehwag added.
