RAJKOT, Dec 16: Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who will be pitted against his former Chennai Super Kings skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni in the Indian Premier League (IPL), believes bowling to India�s limited overs captain will be a big challenge.
Dhoni and Jadeja were playing for CSK but after yesterday�s IPL draft, the Indian wicketkeeper-batsman will head to Pune while the left-arm spinner will move to Rajkot, his home-side for the ninth edition of the T20 League.
When asked about his feeling to bowl against Dhoni, the left-handed all-rounder said, �It�s a big challenge to bowl against Dhoni, particularly in shorter version of the game, as Dhoni has proved himself as a best finisher of the game, but I will do my level best to perform well�.
The 27-year-old cricketer also hopes to play to his potential in the cash-rich league, which commences on April 9 at Wankhede stadium in Mumbai.
�It�s a different kind of a feeling which can not be expressed while playing for a home team and I hope that I would be doing well in the IPL,� he said.
�I have been selected in the Rajkot team as a good player and there is a chance for me to go further if I could play good cricket in the coming IPL season,� said Jadeja, who initially played for Rajasthan Royals. � PTI
