Former Indian opener Virender Sehwag has said that he was surprised by power hitting abilities of Kedar Jadhav in the recently concluded One day International series against England which India won 2-1. Kedar Jadhav was one of the positives for India in the ODI series.
Kedar Jadhav scored 232 runs in 3 matches including 1 half century and 1 century. In the third ODI at Kolkata, Jadhav showed his abilities with the bat scoring 90 runs. He almost won the match for India requiring 6 off 4 balls but could not help India to win the match. During the first ODI at Pune, India were struggling at 63 for 4, but Kedar Jadhav played a match winning knock of 120 helping India to chase down the target of 353.
In third ODI at Kolkata, India were 173 for 5 but Kedar Jadhav and Hardik Pandya put on 104 runs for the sixth wicket.
In his first tweet, Sehwag wrote, Further praising him he tweeted again and wrote, “Kedar Jadhav is the find of this series. Never thought he could prove to be such a power hitter. Gotta prove himself overseas now.”
India required 16 runs off the final over, Kedar Jadhav hit a six and four in the first two balls. His ability to play aggressive strokes makes him a dangerous batsmen. The experience of playing in tough conditions during the ODI series was outstanding.
Kedar Jadhav was named the man of series for great performances. In the ODI series against New Zealand, Jadhav did a decent job with the bat and ball. With Champions Trophy round the corner, the pocket dynamo will play a key role at number 6. India are currently the defending Champions Trophy winners and if he is selected in the team then it will help the Men in Blue to play well with positive intent.
