Jadeja shares his approach to bowling and talks about the Nagpur wicket
Jadeja discussed the pitch at VCA Nagpur, which had been a hot topic leading up to the first India-Australia Test. He explained that there was not much bounce on the wicket and that he was aiming for a stump-to-stump line. He noted that some balls were spinning while others were going straight, and as a left-arm spinner, he credited the ball when he was able to get batsmen out caught behind or stumped.
