“I believe I was having fun while bowling. I like these wickets because the occasional ball spins and some stay low. My plan was to keep it straightforward and easy because I anticipated that they would play sweeps and reverse sweeps. I just intended to bowl into the stumps because I knew they were seeking for runs. I have a chance if they make a mistake. On this type of surface, don’t think the sweep is a good strategy against me, “Jadeja stated following the game.
