Ravindra Jadeja has often managed to turn the tide of the game with his exceptional fielding skills. Honing his skills over the years, the all-rounder has made his case to be considered as one of the best fielders in the circuit. Indian fielding coach R Sridhar believes that Jadeja is the best Indian fielder of the decade.
In a decade where the Indian fielding set-up has matched the standards that were never deemed possible, there have been a plethora of fielders who are a class apart which include Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina, and Virat Kohli.
Despite those names, it is Ravindra Jadeja who makes the cut to be crowned as the best Indian fielder of the entire decade. The left-arm all rounder’s bullet arm, speed in the outfield and exceptional judgement helps him to reach the pole position when it comes to fielders.
In an interview with the Times Of India, Sridhar claimed that apart from his fielding skills, his presence on the field itself is a huge boost for the team. He added:
“Jaddu’s presence on the field lifts the team’s spirits. He is someone who can keep the opposition on their toes with his fielding. He has an intimidating presence on the field,”
“I wouldn’t like to go very far but in the last decade or so Jadeja has been the best fielder India has had,”
