Ravindra Jadeja, an all-rounder for India who bowls left-arm spin, became the eighth Indian bowler to capture 200 wickets in one-day internationals on September 15 in Colombo. On Friday at the R. Premadasa Stadium in this city, Jadeja accomplished the feat during India’s Super Four match in the Asia Cup versus Bangladesh. The match took place.
During his performance of 1-53 in 10 overs, Jadeja achieved the elusive milestone of 200 wickets in One-Day Internationals by bowling Shamim Hossain leg before wicket with turn and bounce. He has also been the first left-arm spinner from India to capture 200 wickets in one-day internationals. The other left-arm spinners from India who have accomplished this feat are Anil Kumble, Javagal Srinath, Ajit Agarkar, Zaheer Khan, and Harbhajan Singh.
Jadeja, who has six wickets from the 2023 Asia Cup, is the second Indian cricketer after Kapil Dev, the 1983 ODI World Cup-winning captain and legendary fast-bowling all-rounder, to complete a double of 2500 runs and 200 wickets in the format. He is the 14th player in the world to be a part of this exclusive club. Jadeja is the second Indian cricketer after Kapil Dev, who was the legendary fast-bowling all-rounder.
His career-best stats in one-day internationals are 5-36, which he achieved against West Indies in 2013 at the Oval during India’s successful run in the ICC Champions Trophy. Jadeja, who is 34 years old, has seven four-wicket hauls to his name. In addition, Jadeja has scalped 275 batsmen throughout 67 tests and 51 players across 64 Twenty20 Internationals.
