Top 10 Best Test Bowlers in 2016


6. Ravindra Jadeja (India) – 43 wickets

Top 10 Best Test Bowlers in 2016 : Ravindra JadejaIndian off-spinner; Ravindra Jadeja was a key figure in India’s dominant year in Test cricket. Against New Zealand, Ashwin took the center stage but Jadeja tied up one end and effectively bowled second fiddle to India’s ace spinner. But it was India’s toughest assignment against England in which he excelled at crucial junctures. The left-arm spinner claimed 26 English wickets in 5 Tests on some batting-friendly pitches and silenced his critics who often tag him as a ‘bad-pitch’ bowler.

Especially in Chennai Test, Jaddu was simply an artist at work and accounted for seven wickets in last two sessions of the final day to bowl India to a victory from nowhere. Notably, he made England’s best player of spin and all-time Non-Asian leading run-scorer in Asia; Alastair Cook his bunny, and deceived him six times out of 10 innings. Jadeja ended the year with 43 wickets in 18 innings.
