"Jadeja has improved a lot as a bowler," added Jurgensen.

Jadeja has impressed one and all with his all round performances in the Test cricket ever since he returned into the Indian fold during South Africa series last year.

Jadeja has played 19 Tests played so far with 81 wickets at an impressive average of 23.15. The leg-spinner has scalped 10 wickets and also made 112 runs in the last two matches. He was adjudged Man of the Match in Kanpur Test for his all round show.

About the performance of Indian bowlers Jurgensen said he was pretty impressed with their display.

"One area I've been observing is the Indian bowlers are very accurate, they have developed a lot in that area. They put a lot of pressure and use subtle variations. They know the conditions very well and they manipulate it to suit," he said.

The Kiwi bowling coach also lauded his team's bowlers, specially the spinners, who kept things tight for the Indian batsmen in both the Test matches.

"I am very pleased about how the bowlers have gone, particularly in the second innings. I think we bowled at the times when it was the hottest and most humid, the intensity the guys brought in the second innings and to take 20 wickets and get ourselves in the game and give us an opportunity was fantastic," he added.
