Kedar Jadhav quickly turning into India’s “Crisis Man”

It might be too early to call but it does seem as if India has found its “Crisis Man”. Kedar Jadhav in a very small time has shown credible signs of becoming one of the more reliable players for the team in a situation of bother. Whenever you need to get a few overs in you throw the ball to Kedar, whenever you need to rescue the team after a collapse its Kedar again to the rescue.

While batting, he’s shown great poise and application in some pretty dicey situations (sure having Dhoni batting at the other end always helps). Be it in the First ODI against Australia here in India or the Decider match between the two teams in Australia when again it was the duo of Dhoni and Jadhav that took the team to the total. Batting alongside Dhoni, he has been able to pull the team through some pretty tough situations (what also helps is having a staggering Average of 47 after 55 matches in ODIs). Even on the bowling front he has had the backing of Virat more often than not and has shown the ability to bowl close to 10 overs almost every time which provides Virat with plenty of options when it comes to team combinations.

From the World Cup’s point of view what it does is it gives India a much better footing against probable favorites England as Kedar provides a much better sense of stability to the lower order as well as gives the team management the freedom of having even more depth in batting if need be.

To add to it he gives India a 3 pace-3 spin bowling line-up which should arguably help them to restrict teams from scoring big totals (which would be a regular phenomenon in the small grounds of England). World Cups in the past have been highlighted by all-rounder performances, be it Lance Klusener in 1999 or Yuvraj Singh in 2011. Could the 2019 World Cup be about Kedar Jadhav? It would be very interesting to see how this one unfolds.
