He was brought down by the defeat of India; Manjrekar says he needed a specialist player instead !!

Criticism is mounting that India’s XI failed in the World Trials Championship final. The pitch that supported pacemakers was shortened with four pacemakers and saw New Zealand win. On the other hand, the Indian lineup had three pacemakers and two spinners. The fact that both spinners hit was also a positive factor. But the party saw a reversal of this decision.

Jadeja was not necessary

Former Indian cricketer and commentator Sanjay Manjrekar has said that the decision to include Ravindra Jadeja in the game XI was a failure. Jadejayam has previously been criticized by Manjrekar. He had made it clear before the game that Jadeja would not be in the game XI. Jadeja was not in the potential roster announced by Manjrekar.

Why consider two spinners?

It is doubtful that he should have played two spinners. The team management considered Jadeja only to hit. He had no advantage in the competition. Manjrekar told ESPN Cricinfo that it would have been better to include a specialized hitter or bowler in his place.

A specialist player was needed

Jadeja scored 15 in the first inning and 16 in the second inning. He took only a wicket. Had it not been for Jadeja, India would have had two main options. It could have included a better test hitter like Hanuma Vihari. A great pacemaker like Shardul Thakur could have included an all-rounder or Mohammad Siraj pacemaker.
