“Long way to go,” Ravindra Jadeja denies rumors of test retirement with a cryptic tweet

Ravindra Jadeja is going to miss the test series against South Africa because of injury

Ravindra Jadeja has dropped hints that he has no plans of retiring from test cricket anytime soon as he uploaded a picture of himself in white jersey on twitter with the caption “long way to go”. After Jadeja suffered another injury in the recently played test series against New Zealand, it was reported that he was considering to retire from the longest format of the game to ensure he continues playing limited over cricket.

Jadeja’s limited over career is on the rise at the moment with him being a established member of India’s T20I and ODI squads and now being the highest player of CSK as well. The southpaw was recently retained as the first choice player of CSK ahead of IPL mega auction, even above the captain MS Dhoni who was given the second retention spot.

Fans of Ravindra Jadeja, however, were a little upset at the reports of his possible test retirement as they were of the view that test cricket is the format where Jadeja is at his best, as he can make a match winning difference with both bat and ball.

In the other formats of the game, although he can be very useful to the team in certain conditions and situations, he is still a bits and pieces player and for him to have a legacy in international cricket as an allrounder, it’s important that he plays 100 test matches.

Ravindra Jadeja has suffered shoulder and knee injuries in the past

Jadeja’s fitness is always going to be a talking point, given the fact that he has had shoulder and knee injuries in the past. These are the kind of injuries which are never really helpful for a player who has to bowl long spells in test match cricket.

But, Ravindra Jadeja, with his tweet today, tried to deny all the rumors going around and hinted that despite some of the fitness issues, he was determined to play test cricket for a long time.


I write a bit on cricket and I am more interested in technical and tactical side of the game, rather than bravado.
