IND vs PAK: Ravindra Jadeja increases number-4’s trouble, Hardik Pandya is also in trouble, what will Rohit do now?

All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the rest of the Asia Cup due to a knee injury. Akshar Patel will join the team in his place. The BCCI said on Friday that Jadeja has suffered a knee injury in his right leg. He is currently under the supervision of the board’s medical team. Akshar was selected from the ‘standby’ players and will soon join the Indian team in Dubai. After Jadeja’s exit, now the Indian team management will have to rethink their strategy for the remaining matches of the Asia Cup.

The X factor has changed
Ravindra Jadeja is a left-handed batsman and that’s probably why he was promoted in the batting by Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid. Team India has Rishabh Pant as a left-handed batsman, but will he be included in the playing eleven? Why would he be dropped at number 4 even if retained? Many such questions have arisen, which must be stressing Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid. Akshar, who joined the team in place of Jadeja, is also a left-handed batsman, but he mostly lands in the lower order. Will India bet on him?

Performance in T20 Internationals in 2022
Ravindra Jadeja: Matches 9, runs 201, strike rate 141.54, wickets 5, economy 7.40
Akshar Patel: Matches 10, runs 69, strike rate 153.33, wickets 8, economy 8.69

There was faith in four, what will happen now?
The Indian team management dropped Jadeja to number four against Pakistan. This decision proved to be a ‘masterstroke’ in a way. He scored 35 off 29 balls in a thrilling win over Pakistan in a close match. Jadeja came to the crease after opener KL Rahul and skipper Rohit Sharma were dismissed for 0 and 12 respectively.

They became heroes because of Hardik, now they will also be affected
He played a role in taking India to the target by forming a crucial 52-run partnership for the fifth wicket with Player of the Match Hardik Pandya (33*). Jadeja said after the match that he was mentally prepared for the position. Jadeja then said, ‘I was the only left-handed batsman in the top-seven. Sometimes when left-arm spinners and leg-spinners are bowling, it is easy for a left-handed batsman to take risks.

Changes in batting order are possible
Jadeja did not get a chance to bat against Hong Kong but bowled hard and took one wicket for just 15 runs in his four overs. He has also changed the course of the match with his precise throws on a few occasions while fielding. On the other hand, Akshar has recently played ODI matches in Zimbabwe. He was also part of the team on the tour of West Indies and England. With Jadeja out, head coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit will also have to rethink the batting order. Number four or five is less likely to receive a letter. Akshar is adept at hitting the remaining few balls at number seven or eight.

Important matches are left
The Indian team management is hoping for a speedy recovery for Jadeja as the T20 World Cup will be played in Australia in October-November. However, before that he has to play important Super-4 matches in the Asia Cup. One of them is also possible against Pakistan. Before going for the title, the team will have to consider whether to replace Jadeja with the experienced Ravichandran Ashwin or trust the young Ravi Bishnoi on the spin bowling front on the UAE pitches. However, these two will not be able to give Jadeja’s assurance in batting. By the way, Deepak Hooda is also an option for number four. But it cannot be said that he will be as effective as Jadeja in bowling.
