Internet Desk: Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin made a bold statement on Friday as they both shared 7 wickets between them to put the Lankans on the mat after the first day of the second test match at Jamtha. The most important thing was they picked the wickets on a wicket which had not much offer for the spinners.

The left arm spinner was not worried about who plays as the lone spinner in South Africa where conditions will be favouring the pacers.

On being asked if he was the captain, then who he would have chosen between him and Ashwin in the playing XI for South Africa Tests, the jovial Jadeja replied,
"Yeh bhi koi puchne ki baat hain (Is this a question that you even need to ask?), his reply had everyone laughing. " If I am the captain, I will not even give the ball to anyone (laughs). I will keep bowling from one end."
Then on a serious note, he said: "It all depends on teams 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.
Aware that one among him, Ashwin and Kuldeep Yadav will feature in the playing XI, Jadeja said that he can only control thing which is in his hands performance.
"I can only control the controllable. When I get an opportunity, I will try to do well. What is not in my control, there is no point thinking about it. When I get a chance to play in South Africa, I will try to do well.
Jadeja was satisfied that he could bowl disciplined line on a strip where there was not much help for the bowlers.
"There was a lot of help from the wicket there (Kolkata) so you guys must have felt that every ball will yield a wicket but that was not the case here because this wicket had grass but not the bounce or swing or the overcast conditions of Kolkata. That's why we did not get much help but the two (Ishant and Yadav) bowled well in the first session."
On his own bowling, Jadeja said: "I was very happy as to how I bowled today. There was no help from the wicket and I was looking to bowl in right areas.
