Rahul Dravid identifies two-star Indian cricketers who have gone slightly unnoticed in the World Cup 2023.

RAHUL DRAVID COMMENTS ON INDIAN PLAYERS

“It’s been exceptional. I think, you know, Jadeja, someone, if you look at the numbers, we look at stats, we look at data, we look at it quite a lot. I mean, he has been exceptional in this tournament. Because of how good our seamers have been and how fantastic it has been to watch them upfront, the performances of people like Jaddu (Jadeja) and Kuldeep (Yadav) have probably gone slightly unnoticed. Sometimes even having to bowl with a slightly wetter ball, because the ball has been slightly wet. Just the kind of control that he’s given us through the middle, the way the control he’s given Rohit has been sensational.

Furthermore, Rahul Dravid said that Jadeja has improved.

And just the areas he’s bowled as well, I think every metric point tells us that he’s up there with anyone in this tournament in terms of just the areas he’s been able to hit, the speeds he’s been able to bowl at. And there’s a lot of good conversations around the group in our bowlers’ meetings with him.

HE KNOWS WHAT HE WANTS

Furthermore, Rahul Dravid said that Jadeja is currently in the stage where he is clear about what he wants for himself.

Just to see him in that kind of relaxed space and very clear about what he wants to do and what he wants to achieve. And just having that confidence to do that consistently over and over again has been fantastic.”

“He’s (Jadeja) just come in and played critical knocks. Even the last one, he was able to really give us that little bit of a flip, a nice little 30 there. And so that’s really good. And then his fielding is incredible, to have someone like him at point and taking some of the catches that he has. So really great all-around package for us, and someone who’s really had a fantastic tournament. A little bit, maybe, gone under the radar a bit”
