Interestingly, he has been enjoying a decent form in ODIs.

In the last 10 matches, he has scored 229 runs at an average of 38.16.

However, in the same period, he has claimed only five wickets at a below-par average of 50.20.

Author's take

Jadhav's unpredictability makes him a lethal weapon

Jadhav's unpredictability makes him a lethal weapon

Jadhav has scored 1,174 runs in 59 ODIs at an average of 43.48.

He has 27 scalps at an economy of 5.15.

However, it is his unpredictability that could be his biggest weapon.

The author feels while he is likely to shine as a batsman, India would also enjoy his services as a bowler as he can chip in with a couple of wickets.
