home Ravindra Jadeja averages 3682 Top News On the first day of the Nagpur Test after the Indian spinners had wound up Sri Lanka for a petty total Ravindra Jadeja was asked to visualise himself as the Indian skipper and who he would pick for the first Test in South Africa himself or his ally Ravichandran Ashwin He smiled an impish smile and retorted playfully: “Yeh bhi koi poochne ki baat hai It’s a no-brainer If I am the captain I will not even give the ball to anyone I will keep bowling from one end” His Saurashtra teammates would swear by his fondness to keep bowling from one end unchanged In a match against Mumbai in 2011 he bowled 36 at a stretch before eventually bowling 56 overs (one third of the total number of overs they bowled) In the next season he probed away for 32 successive overs in a total of 52 against Odisha It’s one of his less appreciated gifts to keep bowling at a stretch from one end — but here he was jesting On a graver note he elaborated: “It all depends on team’s balance and what it wants At times on overseas tours we assess if there are more left-handers or right-handers in the opposition and accordingly the teams composition is set” He was just echoing what Kohli had observed on the day before the Test that he would pick his spinner based on the opposition more specifically the left-right handedness of the team There are some that believe this theory is flawed — that a good spinner is a good spinner against both right and left handers Ashwin himself is a classic case While he has been a scourge against left-handed batsmen the best of his times David Warner and Kumar Sangakkara would testify his average is marginally better against the righties than the lefties —2243 and 2276 respectively though of his 304 wickets 158 have been left-handed batsmen Conversely in Jadeja’s case it’s slightly disproportionate-108 of his 165 wickets are right-handers But it could be that he has been bowling more often against them His average though is still impressive (2510 as opposed to 2268 against righties) Kohli steadfastly believes in the theory “On pitches without much turn or bounce it’s very important to understand if the left-arm spinner is bowling to five right-handers or the off-spinner is bowling to four left-handers Just because of the angle the ball coming in makes so much difference against a spinner” he had said It’s difficult to take a sample size of Kohli’s preferences as he has skippered in only a handful of Tests abroad In his first tour as a full-time skipper to the West Indies where the strips are generally drier these days he played two spinners in three of the four Tests Ashwin played in all four Amit Mishra in two and Jadeja in one But in his first captaincy assignment in Adelaide as incumbent MS Dhoni was injured he gave a gist of his preferences He handed out a debut to leg-spinner Karn Sharma considering the predominant right-handedness of Australia (just Warner Chris Rogers and Mitchell Johnson were southpaws) but it was widely criticised as the leggie not only struggled but his Australian counterpart Nathan Lyon disproved the theory by picking 12 wickets in the most spin-friendly surface in the series Needless to say all 12 victims were right handers Sharma was duly dropped and Ashwin played all three remaining Tests even in Sydney where Kohli captained the first of the post-Dhoni era But his convictions though remained firm at least going by what he repeatedly reiterates in press conferences Kohli’s decision then would be straightforward in the first Test in Cape Town unless the pitch is dry enough to cram both Right-handed heavy as South Africa’s current batting line-up is Jadeja looks the front-runner Of the probable top-seven of South Africa-Dean Elgar Aiden Markram Hashim Amla AB de Villiers Faf du Plessis Temba Bavuma and Quinton de Kock-only two are left handers And Kohli will also take into account the success of the left-arm/leg-spinners against AB de Villiers their most destructive batsman in their trip to India in 2015 Thrice Jadeja nailed him twice each did Amit Mishra and Ashwin It’s not an exact weakness but it’s no coincidence that there are three of these genres in the top seven of the most successful bowlers against de Villiers — Shane Warne Jadeja and Monty Panesar all of who have dismissed him four times each but at a collective average of 45 Then Ashwin had consumed him twice at an average of 26 Harbhajan was even better twice at 20 Even Virender Sehwag had nailed him twice The comparisons wouldn’t one bit allay Kohli’s dilemma But Jadeja believes he has a slight edge over Ashwin He didn’t say in as many words But slipped in a loose thread “When I got a chance last time I played the second Test after Ash played the first” he said just this The implication was clear Ashwin started in the first match and picked no wickets in 42 overs 36 off which he delivered in South Africa’s second innings He was widely criticised for his ineptness on the final day where South Africa nearly won chasing 458 In the next match Jadeja replaced him and picked 6/138 in the first innings bowling 58 overs Subsequently on the tours to England and New Zealand too Jadeja was the first-choice spinner However the trajectories of both bowlers have dramatically changed since Ashwin reinvented his craft; Jadeja re-calibrated his own The latter is not the modern-day pragmatist South Africa saw in 2013 but morphed himself in a more classical mould The former has nailed the art of prising out batsmen rather than looking for magic balls and conquered self doubts Though both are diverse in terms of methods means perspectives and temperament they have emerged as in-expendables Jadeja might not purchase as much side-spin as Ashwin on non-turning tracks but Ashwin can’t under-cut or over-spin like Jadeja To compound Kohli’s confusion both have tremendous all-round utility For if Ashwin is a better batsman Jadeja is a better fielder So he says: “I can’t commit to that (their inclusion)100 per cent when we play abroad that we will be playing with two spinners to be honest” he says It’s the first big decision Kohli will have to make on his biggest test as captain yet And a decision that has scope for immense criticism There is only one easy solution to it: Play them both For all the latest

A mother-son duo and one of their relatives were sentenced to 10 years and seven years in jail respectively for kidnapping a minor from Dadar station and forcing her into marriage The 16-year old girl had left home in 2013 after a quarrel with her mother and met 45-year old Chhaya Bhosale at Dadar station Bhosale convinced her that she would take her home but instead took her to Pune She then took the minor to a village in Satara and introduced her to a relative The victim was then forcefully married to the relative’s 30-year old son who was already married twice After over two years the victim was helped by a neighbour who gave her money to come to Mumbai She returned home and informed her mother about her ordeal after which an FIR was filed The girl told the court that she had lived with the accused for two years and was subjected to physical and sexual abuse She said that she was regularly harassed and compelled to beg for a living to support the accused and his family She said that as she was unfamiliar with the area she was living in and spoke a different language she could not seek help to escape She had also once been thrown into a river by the accused and sustained injuries The defence advocates claimed that the girl had voluntarily gone with Bhosale and had given her consent to the marriage but had returned and filed the complaint after she learnt that her ‘husband’ was married twice before The court ruled that as the victim was alone and scared in an unknown place she might have kept mum and not resisted the marriage “It does not mean that the victim has given consent for marriage” the court ruled The court also ruled that as per provisions of the Hindu Marriage Act marriage with more than one person is itself an offence and the minor’s marriage was declared null and void “In a city like Mumbai such type of incidents (have) increased day by day So many gangs of beggars kidnap minor girls and involve them in illegal activities It is necessary to deter the like-minded people who are committing such offences” the court ruled It convicted the mother-son duo under Sections 366 (kidnapping abducting or inducing woman to compel her marriage) 376 (rape) under the Indian Penal Code and relevant sections of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act and Child Marriage Act and sentenced them to 10 years’ imprisonment Bhosale was
