His ODI career highlights include six half-centuries and two centuries. Jadhav’s last international appearance for India was on February 8, 2020.

Jadhav’s T20I career was brief, featuring in just nine matches. In six T20I innings, he amassed 122 runs at an average of 20.33, with his highest score being 58.

As newer hard-hitting talents like Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, and Axar Patel emerged, Jadhav found it increasingly challenging to secure a place in the Indian team. Reflecting on his journey, he expressed gratitude for the support he received throughout his career. “Thank you all for your love and support throughout my career. From 1500 hrs, consider me retired from all forms of cricket,” Jadhav wrote in his Instagram post.

Jadhav’s cricketing career had its share of notable moments and achievements.

He made an immediate impact, scoring a blistering 50 off just 29 balls, which caught the attention of the cricketing world. Later, in 2016, he was signed by Royal Challengers Bangalore, further solidifying his reputation as a dynamic T20 player. Other than that, he has represented Kochi Tuskers, RCB, Chennai Super Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL over the years.

One of Jadhav’s standout performances came during India’s tour of Zimbabwe in 2015, where he scored a magnificent century. He was again part of the squad for the Zimbabwe tour in 2016, although he did not get an opportunity to bat in the series. His significant involvement with the Indian team came during the five-match ODI series against New Zealand in 2016, where he was a crucial player. Additionally, Jadhav was included in India’s squad for the Champions Trophy in 2017, highlighting his importance in the team during that period.
