Pointing to the strategy, Jadeja says that if India wants to play the ‘Dhoni style’ where Dinesh Karthik plays the role of the finisher, then the team should have the likes of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. He further added that if both of them don’t feature in the XI, then there is no work for Karthik and he should rather sit beside him as a co-commentator.

“Now if you want to play the way I have heard them…aggressive then you have to pick differently. If Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma walks in, you need Dinesh Karthik at all cost. He is your insurance. But if you don’t have either of them then Dinesh Karthik has no work here. But yes I would not put Karthik there, he can have a seat beside me. He is very good as a commentator. But there, in the team, I would not pick him. Now the decision is whether you want to play Ravindra or Axar. If it’s Dhoni style, then add Kohli, Rohit and Karthik. But in modern-day cricket, you have to leave out Karthik. Maybe even Kohli depends on whether he is in form or not”, Jadeja said to FanCode.
