Bangalore: Few months that he was dropped from the Indian squad worked well for left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja as he got time to reflect on his game and look at areas of improvement, feels national team's bowling coach Bharath Arun.

Jadeja has complemented team's spin spearhead Ravichandran Ashwin with both leading the wickets tally with 12 scalps each to their credit from three completed innings in the ongoing four-Test series.

"He had some time to reflect as to which areas he needs to work on to improve. His performances in Ranji Trophy (more than 30 wickets for Saurashtra) should have given him confidence," Arun said.

"Also Jadeja is one of our 'banker' (bankable) bowlers. He knows how to use his strengths to his advantage," he added.
