Ravindra Jadeja is blooming into one of the complete all-rounders in the world. Above all, he is a valuable asset to the Indian national cricket team because of his ability to help the team in three different ways. He can bat, bowl, and also field well.
The all-rounder is staying away from negativity and is completely focused on giving his best to the team. Earlier, there was a verbal exchange between Sanjay Manjrekar and Jadeja on Twitter. It all started when the commentator called him a ‘bits and pieces’ cricketer.
Jadeja came up with a mouth-shutting reply to the cricketer-turned-commentator. The all-rounder wrote: “Enough of verbal diarrhoea”. Since then, Jadeja upgraded himself and converted all his energy into fruitful performances. In fact, he has transformed himself into one of the best all-rounders.
He is scoring runs in the fag end of the overs, taking wickets when it matters the most. The athlete is saving some runs on the field with an incredible presence of mind. He has taken sensational catches in his career.
Jadeja played an important role in the team’s memorable win over Australia at the MCG. He scored 57 runs in the first innings including 3 fours. Jadeja and Rahane added a game-changing 121-run stand for the sixth wicket.
The all-rounder also bowled really well in both innings. He got rid of Pat Cummins in the first innings. The 32-year-old accounted for 2 dismissals in the second innings. He dismissed Matthew Wade and captain Tim Paine. Jadeja also took 2 important catches to his name.
When awkward chat between Jadeja and Taylor went viral
Former England woman international Sarah Taylor was linked with Ravindra Jadeja in the past. Both of them made the headlines after Sarah’s Twitter conversation with Jadeja spread like wildfire on social media.
The incident took place right after the 2014 T20 World Cup finals. At that time, India lost to Sri Lanka in the finals. England women’s team also lost the final against Australia. After both the teams lost their respective finals, Jadeja decided to have a chat with Sarah Taylor.
New to social media, Jadeja was not really aware of the basics of Twitter. So he started the conversation by sending a direct message to Sarah Taylor after the team’s defeat versus the Aussies.
Interestingly, Jadeja didn’t follow her on Twitter. Thus, she was not able to send a direct message to him. At that time, Sarah had no option other than replying to Jadeja’s personal messages with tweets which social media users could see.
Conversation turns personal
Jadeja and Sarah were talking about their team performances. In no time, both of them came to know that Sarah’s replies to Jadeja were public. She had asked the Indian all-rounder to follow her on Twitter such that she can send a direct message to him.
Nonetheless, she kept responding to him through tweets that were seen by netizens. What started a casual conversation turned a tad personal. In the end, Sarah and Jadeja decided to meet each other near the pool at 10 AM.
