There are many superstars in Team India cricket right now. Virat Kohli, Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Rohit Sharma, Jaspreet Bumra .. so many are in the team. However, who is the ‘rock star’ of Indian cricket? Yes today is Jadeja’s birthday.
Ravindra Jadeja was born on December 6, 1988 in the village of Navgam Geed in Jamnagar, Gujarat. His father was a security guard and his mother a nurse. Jadeja’s father always dreamed of becoming a senior officer in the army. But he dreamed of becoming a cricketer. His mother helped him a lot to make those dreams come true. Unexpectedly, however, Jadeja died when she was 17 years old. With this, Jadeja decided to leave cricket. However his older sister encouraged him. She stood by her younger brother and helped in making her dreams come true.
Before joining the national team, Jadeja proved his mettle at the under-19 level. Jadeja is one of the few cricketers to have played twice for India in the Under-19 World Cup. He represented Team India in the 2006 and 2008 World Cups.
Ravindra Jadeja made his first class debut through the 2006 Duleep Trophy. He then started his career with Saurashtra in the Ranji Trophy. Still Ravindra Jadeja did not get proper recognition. But in the first season of IPL, Jaddu entered the ring for Rajasthan Royals. Thereby earning a place on the national team. He made his TeamIndia debut in the ODIs and T20s in February 2009.
This record turned Jadeja’s career around. He scored three triple centuries in a single year in the Ranji Trophy. Jadeja first scored two consecutive triple centuries in November 2011. He then went on to hit two consecutive triple centuries in November and December 2012. He made his Test debut in December 2012.
In 2013, Ravindra Jadeja became the number one bowler in ODIs. In 1996, he became the first Indian bowler to top the list after Anil Kumble. Shortly afterwards he became the No. 1 bowler in Tests. Also became the number one all-rounder. Jadeja touched the 200-wicket mark in his 44th Test match.
Ravindra Jadeja was banned during the IPL 2010 season. Despite a deal with the Rajasthan Royals, the BCCI imposed the ban on him for not holding secret talks with another team. Then in 2011, Chennai Super Kings bought Jadeja. Jadeja has been a key player for the Chennai franchise ever since. Also Jadeja is called ‘Sir Jadeja’ by his fans.
