In a country like India where emotions ride high, the phrase, 'the next big thing' is used judgmentally for players at a very young age. Ravindra Jadeja is a victim of such a stereotype. It was only until a few years later that the talent was truly realised by the Indian selectors and subsequently capitalised to its fullest.

Ravindra Jadeja Profile

In a country like India where emotions ride high, the phrase, 'the next big thing' is used judgmentally for players at a very young age. Ravindra Jadeja is a victim of such a stereotype. It was only until a few years later that the talent was truly realised by the Indian selectors and subsequently capitalised to its fullest.

Glimpses of Jadeja's prodigious talent were evident in his debut first-class game where he scored 53 for West Zone. He was consequently a member of the 2006 Under-19 World Cup side which reached the final. He made it to the 2008 edition as well wherein his bowling performance of 2-25 against Pakistan in the final played a major role in India's acquisition of the title. A good stint in the Indian T20 league with Rajasthan under the captaincy of Shane Warne who had nicknamed him 'Rockstar', and an impressive all-round show in the 2008-09 season prompted selectors to hand him an ODI debut against Sri Lanka. Though India lost, the left-hander impressed with an unbeaten 60.

2012 turned out to be a productive year for Jadeja. He was one of the marquee signings for the then defending champions Chennai for US$2 million, making him the most expensive buy of the season. Jadeja hit the headlines and record books when he became the first Indian to score three triple centuries in first class cricket. With an all-rounder's role beckoning and the series already lost to England with one game to play, Jadeja received his first Test cap and hasn't looked back since.

The year 2013, saw Jadeja reach greater heights as he ran through the Australian batting line-up with consummate ease in India's 4-0 cleansweep in Tests. He surged to the top in the ICC bowler's rankings in ODIs as well, going past the likes of world class spinners like Saeed Ajmal and Sunil Narine. Constant hard work and self-belief has blessed Jadeja or 'Sir' as he is commonly known today, a regular berth in the Indian team across all the formats.
