KOLKATA: Gujarat Lions’ assistant coach Sitanshu Kodak backed star bowler Ravindra Jadeja to take his recent performances in the IPL in his stride and bounce back to his previous ways. The top Test bowler in the world was taken to the cleaners during his team’s match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore, conceding 57 from his quota, his worst figures in the shortest format. “Jadeja is one player who can contribute in all the three departments of the game — batting, bowling and fielding. He had an average last game but that can happen to any player in this format,” Kotak said. “Someone like Chris Gayle, if he’s in full flow, he can hit any bowler. He could not play first two games as he was rested. That was a big loss for us.”
