Jadeja completes 200 wickets in ODIs, joins Kapil Dev in elite record

India’s left-arm spin all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja on Friday reached another milestone as he became the seventh Indian to scalp 200 ODI wickets.

The star all-rounder achieved the feat during India’s ongoing Super Four clash of the Asia Cup against Bangladesh at the R. Premadasa Stadium in Colombo.

The 34-year-old reached the magical 200-wicket mark by trapping Shamim Hossain before wickets. Jadeja ended his quota of ten overs with figures of 1/53.

Jadeja meanwhile,  is now the only left-arm spinner from India to pick 200 wickets in ODIs. The other Indians to do so are Anil Kumble, Javagal Srinath, Ajit Agarkar, Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh and legendary Kapil Dev. Moreover, Jadeja is now only the second Indian after Kapil Dev, the 1983 ODI World Cup-winning skipper and legendary fast-bowling all-rounder, to complete a double of 2000 runs and 200 wickets in the ODI format.

Globally, Jadeja is the 14th player to enter this exclusive club.

Overall, Jadeja has seven four-wicket hauls in the ODIs while his career-best figures are 5/36, which had come against West Indies in 2013 at the Oval during the ICC Champions Trophy.

In Tests, the star all-rounder has 275 wickets from 67 Tests while 51 scalps from 64 T20Is.
