Expressing her pleasure over his brother’s stellar performance in the successful opening ODI against England, the sister of Indian middle-order batsman Kedar Jadhav, Suchita recently said that she is proud of the way the former stitched a 200-run partnership with skipper Virat Kohli to guide the team to a three-wicket victory at Pune.
“I am very happy with his performance. I am very proud of the way he and Virat Kohli stitched the partnership and guided the team to victory. He came to bat under extremely tough situations. Fans had almost lost their hopes after India lost four crucial wickets including of Dhoni, Yuvraj and Shikhar Dhawan. The 351-run target was looking difficult to achieve at that time. But I as an audience and as a sister was hoping to see his good performance with Virat,” Suchita said.
Describing Virat as the ‘best’ and an ‘aggressive’ batsman, Suchita insisted that she is glad to see her brother supporting the skipper equally well to help India chase down the target.
“Virat is the best batsman, finisher, as well as an aggressive batsman. I was confident that he will be able to put up good performance with Kohli. When he was nearing 100 runs, he was facing difficulty while running. Still he managed to build a 100-run partnership with Kohli and then a 200-run partnership. They were well supported by Hardik Pandya and Ravichandran Ashwin in their chase of 351-run target,” she said.
