Ravindra Jadeja had a big contribution towards India’s win over South Africa in a first match of the three-match Test series held in Visakhapatnam. We got to see some splendid bowling, batting and fielding performance from the all-rounder.
After India’s convincing 203-run win on Sunday, former Indian opener Virendra Sehwag took to Twitter to praise the team for an applauding performance and named out a few in particular. Sehwag mentioned Rohit Sharma, Mayank Agarwal, Ravichandran Ashwin to name a few and failed to include Ravindra Jadeja in his tweet. However, Sehwag’s tweet did not go too well with the supporters of Jadeja and many fans from across the country trolled Sehwag for not mentioning Jadeja in his tweet.
Where some fans tweeted asking Sehwag if he didn’t see Jadeja on the field performing brilliantly with not only his bat but also with his ball and while fielding. They asked if Sehwag had dozed off while Jadeja was playing.
Sehwag’s tweet read, “Fantastic test match for @ImRo45, a dream beginning to opening the batting in Test cricket. Wish him the very best, That was a convincing win for India with some great contributions from Mayank, Shami, Ashwin , Pujara, #IndvSA”
However, Ravindra Jadeja’s retweet of fan attracted mixed reactions. Where many supported him while many criticised him as Sehwag may have just forgotten to mention his name and just chose to name the outstanding performers.
Ravindra Jadeja scored a 30 and 40 runs in his innings and dismissed 4 wickets in the second innings adding to two he grabbed in the first.
