New Delhi: Ravindra Jadeja has been consistently performing with the ball for Chennai, and the all-rounder says his mantra to success is to bowl in good areas and mix up the deliveries.Stating that a bowler always adjusts according to the given conditions, Jadeja said, “If the ball is turning then that is one way of bowling and if there is no turn then it is a different ball game.

I try to bowl dot balls and bowl in the good areas and mix my deliveries. Vary the pace and at times bowl outside the off-stump,” he explained.Jadeja was the most economical bowler with figures of 4-0-23-1 against Delhi Daredevils. “After giving away those runs in the second over I was only thinking about not bowling any loose deliveries in my next over. From the end I was bowling it had a shorter boundary,” Jadeja told IPL’s official website.

“This is T20 cricket and they were going to take their chances. I was thinking of not bowling to their strength. My effort was to try and bowl where the batsman can’t hit the big shots and luckily I was able to bowl in right areas.”

“He hits well over midwicket and mid-on so I thought of bowling to him outside off-stump. If he hits a good shot then there is nothing much I can do.”Jadeja said the Super Kings were expecting to restrict Daredevils to 160-165. “When DD were 108 for three and lost a couple of wickets at the score of 120, we thought of restricting them to 160-165 runs.” PTI
