What previous two victories couldn’t do was done by today’s loss.
Today, India made a big statement for upcoming Champions Trophy.
Falling short of just 5 runs in a 321 run chase without significant contribution from Kohli or Dhoni and that too on a pitch that assisted seam bowling is not anything to be looked down upon.
The condition was similar to what we will see in England in Champions Trophy and rise of Kedar Jadhav is good news for Indian cricket. He would have removed whatever shred of doubt left in Dhoni’s mind that he has to play cautiously and has to take match till the last to win it for India. Now, he can rely on Kedar Jadhav to do that and can play ferocious cricket that he is known for.
Rise of Kedar Jadhav makes India a strong contender for Champions Trophy 2017.
