A canny left-arm spinner and hard-hitting lower-order batsman, Ravindra Jadeja thrust himself into the national reckoning when he scored 739 runs and picked up 42 wickets in the 2008-09 Ranji season. In the shorter versions, Jadeja is especially dangerous, where his ability to find the gaps with his left-handed drives and hit cleanly down the ground when required make him an asset. Add a good throwing-arm and safe hands and you get the kind of package any captain is happy to have in the mix. Jadeja made his one-day international debut against Sri Lanka in February 2009 but has not been able to break into the Test side despite rattling off impressive scores in domestic cricket. He made an unbeaten 232 against Orissa in the Ranji Trophy in 2008-09, an unbeaten 170 in the Duleep Trophy semi-final in 2010-11. Both figures were dwarfed when he rattled off 314 -- the highest by a Saurashtra batsman in first-class cricket, and the 11th-highest overall in Ranji history -- in 2011-12 against Orissa. Jadeja's IPL career took off with a bang at the Rajasthan Royals in 2008, where he was dubbed “The Rockstar” by skipper Shane Warne. However, he was forced to sit out the third season after being banned for one year by the Governing Council for attempting to negotiate a higher contract in breach of IPL rules. He returned to the IPL with the Kochi Tuskers in 2011, and when that team was disbanded the Chennai Super Kings snapped him up for a whopping $US2 million - the entire purse available to the team in the 2012 auction.
