India star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja after a win against Sri Lanka in the 1st Test said the performance like this boost confidence of the team. Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin bagged four wickets in 2nd innings, as India defeated Sri Lanka by an innings and 222 runs in the first Test. India takes an unassailable 1-0 lead in the two-match Test series.
“I would say this is my lucky ground. Whenever I come here I get positive vibes. I was looking to build a partnership with Rishabh, give him the strike and enjoy his batting from the other end. To be honest I don’t know about any stat. Feeling very good, happy to score runs and pick wickets for the team,” said Ravindra Jadeja after he received Player of the Match.
“Obviously as a player, you boost your confidence with such a performance. I have not done anything differently, just played to my strengths and I give myself time to settle down. I look to keep it very simple out in the middle. I haven’t played with the SG pink ball, so it is going to be different and I will practice for a couple of days, hopefully, it comes good,” he added.
