‘India Can’t Do Without Him In World Cup’, Sanjay Manjrekar Names The Most Important Player Of India

Former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar has talked about the importance of Ravindra Jadeja’s role in India’s ODI World Cup journey, noting that the all-rounder has shown significant improvement in white-ball cricket as well. Jadeja bowled brilliantly during India’s second Group A match against Nepal in Pallekele on Monday, September 4.

The star Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been on and off in the ODIs in recent times. However, he is a definite pick for India in the ODI World Cup squad which will be announced today.

In the match against Nepal at Pallekele, Jadeja made a significant impact by taking 3 wickets in his first 8 overs. He managed to create a halt for the Nepal batters who had a promising start with the bat. Once Nepal was standing at 178 for 6 after 37.5 overs, with Jadeja’s performance in the middle overs proving pivotal.

Speaking about Ravindra Jadeja on Star Sports, Sanjay Manjrekar talked about the improvement of all-rounders in white-ball cricket and said,”There is a very good chance, it’s almost a certainty that he will play all the World Cup matches. India can’t do without him. Axar Patel will be there in the reserves but Jadeja will be the first-choice spin-bowling all-rounder. If the pitch is rough, if you have got a quality opposition, he will finish in 10 overs.”
Manjrekar also said that it will be dreadful to compare Yuvraj Singh and Ravindra Jadeja but the current left-arm all-rounder will definitely make his place into the squad.
