Moises Henriques questions Yuzvendra Chahal being ‘like-for-like’ substitute for Ravindra Jadeja




Moises Henriques has mentioned Australia has no problem with Ravindra Jadeja being substituted out for a concussion, however, has questioned if Yuzvendra Chahal was a like-for-like substitute for him.

A mix of Jadeja, the batsman, and Chahal, the bowler, knocked Australia out in a T20 international that they managed for lengthy intervals. Jadeja first rescued India from 114 for six to assist submit 161 with an unbeaten 23-ball 44. Within the course of, he did seem to injure his hamstring, but additionally top-edged a Mitchell Starc bouncer into his helmet within the final over of the innings. He was substituted by Chahal within the innings break, and the wrist-spinner turned in a match-winning evaluation of 4-0-25-3, which included the wickets of Aaron Finch and Steven Smith.

Throughout the innings break, an animated Australia coach, Justin Langer, could possibly be seen remonstrating with match referee David Boon. On the post-match presentation, Finch mentioned he had no purpose to doubt the opinion of medical consultants, a sentiment Henriques repeated.


“From our level as a participant you have simply received to roll and get on with it,” Henriques mentioned. “As soon as a call has been made you simply transfer ahead and do what you may to win the fixture. While you‘ve received professionals in place to make these selections, and there is not any doubt he received a knock on the helmet, so from my standpoint I do prefer to try to see the perfect in everybody. However having mentioned that, whether or not it was a like-for-like substitute, that is the one factor transferring ahead, that is the query we might prefer to see.”

Already injured earlier than he received hit on the top, it isn’t clear if Jadeja had bowled or how efficient he would have been if he did, however, that isn’t the problem Henriques had. “Like for like, from my standpoint, it might positively be one’s an all-rounder and a gun fielder, and the opposite one is an out-and-out bowler who bats [at] 11. That is the one factor from my standpoint. I would prefer to look into if that is a like-for-like choice.”

Jadeja is a finger spinner, who was dropped from Indian limited-overs sides in 2017 in favour of wrist spinners for the shortage of penetration. He pressured his manner again in due to the shortage of depth in India’s batting, which can counsel finger spinners will not be as efficient as wrist spinners in T20s. Coming into this match, Jadeja had gone 13 T20 matches without taking a couple of wickets. In 9 of these, he had been wicketless.

However, the ultimate choice rested with Boon, the match referee. The ICC enjoying circumstances say: “In assessing whether the nominated concussion substitute needs to be thought-about a like-for-like participant, the ICC Match Referee ought to think about the probable position the concussed participant would have performed throughout the rest of the match and the conventional position that will be carried out by the nominated concussion substitute.”
