Former South Africa pacer Dale Steyn feels that all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja been added during the recently concluded ODI series against SA vs IND he could have cherished a lot more than Rohit Shrama.

According to Dale Steyn, in contribution to all three cricket departments (bat, field and bowling) Ravindra Jadeja’s all-rounder ability must have given the Indian teams an extra edge.

“He definitely remembered someone like Sir Ravi Jadeja. I think he is a great cricketer. He can control the game with his left arm spin. He is brilliant and he can bat as well.”

Adding further,

“Indian bowling side is good and has some best bowlers but still adding a few new fast bowlers in the list could add some value, supporting Jasprit Bumrah. India has a bit of a bowling issue. They need someone who can bowl in the 140-145 kmph bracket. Shami is great. His one it was a long Test series. Siraj looks like a name in the future. I think he has been in a bit of trouble “

His first achievement as a bowler was seen in a match against New Zealand in 2006 when he took 10 wickets.

Who is Dale Steyn?

Dale Steyn is a former professional cricketer from South Africa. He is often regarded as one of the greatest fast bowlers of all time, the best Test bowler. He is one of those bowlers in international cricket that has the ability to swing the ball both ways and accuracy has probably made him the best player in the country.

Meanwhile, stand-in Indian captain KL Rahul, who led India in four matches in South Africa that resulted in a loss, said the results would only help one improve and get stronger and for him the country’s best. It was a great honor to lead.

KL Rahul is also the newly appointed captain of the Lucknow Super Giants team (IPL franchise), while talking to TOI had some talks about the leadership and formation of the new team ahead of the new season of IPL.

Talking about leadership, KL Rahul is clearly visible in his mind. The best part is that he knows his responsibilities as a captain and will look forward to leading the team. According to Rahul, there is a steep learning curve in captaincy which needs to be learned over time.

In a conversation with the Times of India, the player said that captaincy is something that you can improve on the basis of his 2-3 years of captaincy. He further says that captaincy can be learned only when you are the captain, between the leadership and the senior players. He can do really well if given a chance. Every game has a learning curve and never stops until you are playing. It was a great pleasure to join and lead the team of Lucknow Super Giants.
