It is not easy to play international cricket. People often forget the fact that the match days show only a small part of the effort that the cricketers put in. The real work happens behind the scenes which help the players to work on their game and build fitness so as to give their best to the team. There is nothing impossible in the modern-day game. The dynamics have changed completely and if a player is not on his toes, opportunities will elude him.

Ravindra Jadeja is one the impact players for Team India. Though he has lost his place in the limited overs side, he has been sensational in red ball cricket. Jadeja is picking wickets in heaps and delivering positive results for Kohli’s side. He is a handy all-rounder who can play more than a handy knock lower down the order.

Apart from his batting and bowling, Jadeja is one of the best fielders in the side. Often the most ignored aspect of a player, Jadeja’s fielding has been top notch as he has saved crucial runs for the team and taken vital catches more often than not.

Hitting hard

The left-arm spinner took to Instagram to post a video where he can be seen working on his fitness. He is doing the sledgehammer workout that improves the strength. Jadeja’s absence from the T20 and ODI side has provided him more time to prepare for the test series against England.

Here’s the video posted by Jadeja:

Keep hitting hard until u reach your goals #workout #lifestyle #rajputboy👑

The conditions in England are not too favorable for the spinners. Jadeja needs to be at the top of his game to help India do well in whites. The test series starts on August 1 and it will be interesting to see the combination that India go within the first game. With Kuldeep Yadav doing quite well in the limited overs format, the management might be willing to take a gamble with the china man. Kohli is known to throw up a few surprises with his team selection and this series will be no different than the previous ones.
