The stage is set for the final of the ODI World Cup 2023 as India and Australia will take centre stage at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday, November 19. As the high-octane clash approaches, both sides will be keen on putting in their best performances and getting their hands on the coveted title.
“I am always going to look for the X-factor player, the rockstar, and that has to be Ravindra Jadeja. He has had a fairly quiet backend to this World Cup, mostly because the batting order hasn’t really given him anything to do,” Swann told CNN News 18.
I always look for big-time players: Swann
Furthermore, Swann pointed out Jadeja’s performance in the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 and talked of how he won the title for Chennai Super Kings in the final.
“I always look for big-time players, players when the pressure is on in the heat of the battle, times when even the world’s best fail, Jadeja absolutely lives for those occasions. Just look at the IPL last year; wins the whole IPL off the last two balls, a six and a four,” Swann said.
