In the past two seasons, he has proved to be an asset for the national side and CSK, but all that has not helped him get an A+ BCCI contract. Not only did it surprise former English captain Michael Vaughan, but fans from across the world were disappointed following this move by India’s apex cricketing body.Also Read - VVS Laxman To Coach India for T20I Series vs Ireland In Place of Rahul Dravid: Report
On Sunday, during Chennai’s much-awaited face-off against Virat Kohli-led Bangalore, Jadeja once again proved why he is hailed as one of the best all-rounders in the world. He not only came good with the bat, smashing 62* off 28 balls to help CSK post 191 for four in their stipulated 20 overs. Not just that, he also chipped in with the ball picking two massive wickets of AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell. To add to that, Jadeja also affected a run-out to send Dan Christian packing.
