After half a decade of persistence, the young and effervescent Haryana batsman appeared to finally establish his place in the Indian Test and ODI sides. Whenever injuries to other players afforded him an opportunity to play, he has grabbed it with both hands. Although he had much success as an opener in one-day cricket in partnership with Tendulkar, he has had to move down the order. To his credit, this attractive strokeplayer, who is also in possession of a compact defensive technique, has adapted extremely well to his new role, displaying the ability to both step up the run rate, or shore up the innings. His value to the team is further highlighted by his outstanding abilities in the field, where he can be counted on to save about 20 runs in every match, most of them from his favourite haunt at backward point. In addition, he bowls a useful gentle medium pace, much in the vein of Mohinder Amarnath. He is probably the best finisher of the game as he emonstrated in the World Cup 1996 Quarter Final vs. Pakistan. Jadeja took over vice-captaincy from Anil Kumble and when Azhar dropped out of two games, Jadeja did a good job as captain, winning both the games. In the World Cup, Jadeja once again consolidated his place as the best finisher of the game with some intelligent shots in the slog overs.
