India’s star cricketer Ravindra Jadeja wrote his name in the history of Indian cricket by completing 2000 runs as well as 200 wickets in the One Day International on Friday. Notably, the great all-rounder achieved this landmark during the Super Fours clash against Bangladesh on September 15 at R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo during the Asia Cup 2023. The left-handed batter joins legendary cricketer Kapil Dev on the elite list and becomes the second all-rounder to achieve this milestone.
The 1983 World Cup-winning skipper was the first Indian to complete 2000 runs while grabbing 200 wickets in his 166 ODI innings. Meanwhile, Ravindra Jadeja took 179 innings to reach this feat. Notably, the left-arm orthodox bowler has always been a crucial player for his team, as the off-spinner took six wickets in just four matches of the Asia Cup 2023, which played a crucial role in helping the Men in Blue reach the final.
Ravindra Jadeja has been in solid form in the Asia Cup 2023
Meanwhile, the star cricketer is in magnificent form this year. Earlier this year, the 34-year-old cricketer helped Rohit Sharma and Co. beat Pat Cummins’s side in the Border Gavaskar Trophy. Following this, the off-spinner hits two back-to-back boundaries against the Gujarat Titans during the final of the IPL 2023 to help the MS Dhoni-led Chennai Super Kings win the title for the fifth time and become one of the most successful franchises.
Undoubtedly, the Gujarat-born all-rounder will be one of the most dominant and influential players in the upcoming ODI World Cup, which is all set to commence on October 5 in the host country, India, whereas the Men in Blue will be facing Australia in their opening match. Meanwhile, Shakib-Al-Hasan’s side has piled up 265 runs in the given 50 overs during the Super Fours of the Asia Cup 2023. Notably, the star cricketer has grabbed one crucial wicket to join the elite list with former India all-rounder Kapil Dev.
