Former India cricketer Ajay Jadeja has added that Ravindra Jadeja’s batting consistency is coming from the mental change he has made to his game in recent times. However, Jadeja returned to the Indian team with a bang on Friday when he scored a fifty and also picked up a five-wicket haul on Day one for the Nagpur Test in the Border-Gavaskar trophy.

And, his contributions to the bat have come in handy for Team India over the past few years as he sealed the place as an excellent lower-order batter for the team. While speaking on Cricbuzz, Ajay Jadeja said that there was no doubt about Ravindra Jadeja’s batting ability and in the past few years as we haven’t been seeing him getting out for low scores as well.

‘But he plays long innings. The last two hundreds he scored came in the last one and a half years. His batting has improved consistently. It’s not like he has brought in something new to his batting. The change has happened in his head and we had seen it with his bowling. And now we’re getting to see it in his batting as well,’ Ajay Jadeja said.

‘The consistency is not in making small scores. Once he is set, Jadeja makes big scores. On today’s pitch, any delivery could get you out. But the batting consistency is coming from the change he has made mentally and that has made the difference for him,’ Ajay Jadeja concluded.
