Cricketers take a huge pride while playing for their respective teams in the biggest cricketing tournament, the 50-overs World Cup 2019. There have been many such players in the past who are rated as one of the greatest cricketers of all-time, but they haven’t been part of any World Cup squad. With just a few months for the 2019 World Cup to get started in England and Wales; all the ten teams are currently stressing to finalize their respective 15-member squad for the upcoming mega event.
Right now my focus is on CSK
During a recent interview, Indian all-rounder Kedar Jadhav, who has performed really well with the ball to earn that all-rounder’s tag, revealed that like every other cricketer, he too dreamt of playing the World Cup for India. However, Jadhav who will be turning up for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in IPL 2019, mentioned that he is currently focussing on doing well for his team in the upcoming IPL season. He stated that he is looking forward to perform with the highest of abilities for his IPL team.
“Basically every cricketer who plays for India it’s a dream for him to feature in a World Cup team, and I’m no different to that. As of now, my focus in the next two months will be on CSK. I hope to win it this year and I’m looking forward to all those two months with a fit body and contribute to the best of my abilities,” Kedar Jadhav was quoted as saying in India Today.
My workload is about managing my bowling
In the recent few months, Jadhav has become an integral part of the Indian ODI team both as a batsman and as a handy off-spinner, who has the ability to pick up crucial wickets in pressure situations. Jadhav played just the opening game of IPL 2018, after which he got ruled out of the entire season due to a hamstring injury. He noted that his only workload which needs to be managed is his bowling. He also revealed that he will not be required to bowl that many overs for CSK, as he does for the Indian team.
“My workload, I think, is about managing my bowling. In Chennai Super Kings, I don’t think I need to bowl as much as I do in the Indian team. We all are professional cricketers and we know how to manage our bodies. How you recover after every IPL game really matters during this two-month period. You can’t just improve in one training session,” he added.
