After that Ravindra Jadeja was constantly failing at the international level and was smashed hard by the critics for it. He did not show a promising and great performance in the World Cup too and from there on Jadeja failed on the Bangladesh tour too and thus was dropped for the upcoming test tour of Sri Lanka and the ODI & T20 series against South Africa.

While Jadeja was dropped from the side he started to work on his game and played in the domestic circuit for a while to improve his game. Jadeja on the backing of a great Ranji season was called back for the test series against the Proteas. Jadeja got 38 wickets in four domestic matches and piled up three 50’s too. Rightfully called back, Jadeja made it count in the test against South Africa. SIR Ravindra Jadeja got Du Plessis out on the second ball he bowled on his comeback and got Philander out on the first ball he bowled in the second innings. You might think that is quite a phenomenal comeback but wait there is more to come. Jadeja got three wickets in the first innings and picked up a fifer in the second innings. And that is how Ravindra Jadeja’s comeback test ended with him being the player of the match.
