He was part of the Indian squad for the 2006 Under-19 Cricket World Cup in Sri Lanka. India finished runners-up with Jadeja impressing in the final match against Pakistan, where he took 3 wickets by giving away just 16 runs in his 8 overs and helped the Indian team restrict Pakistan to a modest score of just 109 runs. In reply, the Indian team was all out for just 71 runs and lost the match by 38 runs. 2
He was the vice-captain of the Indian team which won the 2008 Under-19 Cricket World Cup in Malaysia under the leadership of Virat Kohli. 3
Jadeja was signed by Rajasthan Royals (RR) for Rs. 12 lakh for the inaugural season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) in 2008 and was with them in 2009 also. However, he was banned from the 2010 IPL for attempting to get a contract from other franchises without informing his current team i.e. Rajasthan Royals (RR). 4
He made his international debut in an ODI match against Sri Lanka in Colombo on 8 February 2009, where he scored 60* but India lost the match by 68 runs. 5

In the 2012 IPL player auction, Jadeja became the most expensive player of the season as Chennai Super Kings (CSK) bought him for INR 12.8 crore.
In December 2012, Jadeja became the eighth batsman and first Indian player to score three triple-centuries in first-class cricket, joining the illustrious company of WG Grace, Bill Ponsford, Don Bradman, Wally Hammond, Graeme Hick, Brian Lara and Michael Hussey. He was just 23 years old at that time. 8
He made his Test debut against England at Nagpur on 13 December 2012, where he bowled 70 overs and picked 3/117. 9

While doing commentary in a 2019 World Cup match, Sanjay Manjrekar criticized Jadeja by calling him a ‘bits and pieces player’. To this, Jadeja said that he has heard enough of Manjrekar’s verbal diarrhea and that the former cricketer should respect people who have achieved more than him. However, Manjrekar apologized after Jadeja’s performance in the World Cup semifinal match against New Zealand, where Jadeja slammed a breathtaking 77 off 59 deliveries and nearly won the match for India from a hopeless situation. 13

Ahead of the 2022 IPL season, Jadeja, who had never captained at the senior level before was announced as captain of the Chennai Super Kings IPL franchise. However, Jadeja, who had been struggling with bat and ball stepped down in the middle of the season just after eight matches and handed over the leadership back to Dhoni for the remainder of the season to focus more on his game. 14 15
His wife, Rivaba Jadeja was given a ticket by the BJP from the Jamnagar North constituency in the 2022 Gujarat Legislative Assembly election. It is interesting to note that Ravindra Jadeja’s father, Anirudhsinh Jadeja, and his sister, Naynaba Jadeja campaigned for the Congress candidate Bipendrasinh Chatursinh Jadeja. Rivaba won the election by defeating her nearest rival Karshanbhai Karmur of the Aam Aadmi Party by 53,570 votes. Rivaba is the niece of Congress politician Hari Singh Solanki and has also served as the chief of the women’s wing of Karni Sena. 16
