London: The only sign of discomfort in Ravindra Jadeja's 'performance' on Tuesday was answering questions in English. The International Cricket Council's 'mandatory' requirement left Jadeja in a 'spin' but he still managed to express himself.

"Hindi mein pucho na? (Why don't you ask questions in Hindi?)" Jadeja told Indian reporters, but since it's an ICC rule, he could ill afford to 'break' the rules. Like his bowling, the 24-year-old Jadeja did a pretty neat job.

Keeping things simple has helped my game, said Jadeja, who was the Man of the Match in Tuesday's ICC Champions Trophy group B match against the West Indies here. Jadeja finished with a career-best haul of five for 36 as India won by eight wickets to become the first team to qualify for the semifinals.
