During a recent chat in Cricbuzz, Ashish Nehra said, “Jadeja’s return is a plus, he always improves the team’s combination in all formats. In the last two or three years, the way he has improved his batting, he is no longer a No.7 or No.8 player and in ODIs and T20Is, he can bat at even No.6 if the conditions are good.”

India are coming into the series on the back of a clean sweep against West Indies in the recent three-match ODI and T20I series against West Indies.

Talking about the same, Ashish Nehra said, “One can hope that Sri Lanka will play well here considering they are fresh from a tour of Australia and give a better fight to India than West Indies did.”

He further explained, “The West Indies had a few moments for themselves in the ODIs and T20Is but they could never finish them. Sri Lanka also experienced something similar in Australia and they would want to get some change to that scoreline here.”
