Former Indian cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar accepts that Ravindra Jadeja will find it hard to get a standard spot in India’s playing eleven in the forthcoming T20 World Cup 2022. As of late, there have been a great deal of talks continuing with respect to who will make India’s starting eleven, particularly in the middle and lower order.
The brilliant comeback cited from Hardik Pandya and Dinesh Karthik are making it harder for the selectors to settle down on their favoured crew for the large competition in October-November.
The star Indian all-rounder missed India’s five-match T20I series against South Africa this month because of injury. His exhibitions for Chennai Super Kings in Indian Premier League 2022 were poor with only 116 runs and 5 wickets in 10 matches.
Axar Patel played in the number seven situation as a spin all-rounder playing option against South Africa, however his exhibitions were not persuasive to the point of naming that situation for himself.
“Clearly, Dinesh Karthik has shown that he can be a number 6 or 7 as a pure batter. The impact that he is making is phenomenal and we saw that in T20Is against South Africa and also in the IPL. So, it’s not really going to be easy for Jadeja to come in and take his place and India might settle in with somebody like Axar Patel.”
“The side now has Hardik Pandya, Karthik batting down the order. Rishabh Pant is also there so it’s not going to be easy for him. But knowing the kind of player Jadeja is, he will be making sure that the headache doesn’t get less for the selectors.” Stated By Manjrekar in a virtual interaction chat with First Post.

Numerous former cricketers, including Irfan Pathan, have named Jadeja in the number seven position when gotten some information about their favoured playing eleven for the World Cup in Australia. In any case, Manjrekar feels that Axar could stretch out a sign of approval for start beyond Jadeja.
Manjrekar additionally shared his perspectives on the stressing type of star wicketkeeper-player Rishabh Pant. He was named as a substitute captain for the South Africa series however the player neglected to have an effect as captain and with his bat too.
“The kind of performances that we have seen from all the guys, Rishabh Pant will feel the pressure of having to perform. My thing is to wait and watch with Rishabh Pant because he is different, and enigmatic and he has shown it at the Test level. He is a remarkable player. But in the white-ball cricket, he is someone who is still in the process of telling exactly what kind of a player he is,” concluded by Manjrekar.
He scored 58 runs in five matches with a simple average of 14.50 and an unfortunate strike rate of 105.45. Manjrekar figures that Pant is as yet a work of progress and requests additional time.
