Ravindra Jadeja played a vital role in India’s win over South Africa in the recently concluded first match of the test series. He not only picked up six wickets in the match but also made useful contribution with the bat. After India’s win, former Indian cricketer Virender Sehwag posted a congratulatory tweet , but there was no mention of Jadeja in it. Replying to Sehwag, a Twitter user blamed him for overlooking Jadeja’s fine performance. “@virendersehwag kya aapke TV me @imjadeja ki batting, bowling aur fielding ka performance nahi dikha??? Ya phir so gaye the???.” Although Jadeja did not react directly to Sehwag’s tweet, but he retweeted the fan’s comment on Sunday and that is left many in a state of delirium. Both Sehwag and Jadeja’s supporters are now engaged in a twitter war.

Jadeja stars in India’s win
Earlier, chasing a stiff target of 395 runs, the entire South Africa team was dismissed for 191 as the Indian bowlers did not allow the proteas top order to settle down. While Mohammed Shami was the pick of the bowlers for the Indian side, Jadeja also made a significant contribution and provided India some important breakthroughs, ending with six wickets to his name. Jadeja also became the fastest cricketer to register 200 Test wickets, achieving the feat in only 44 Tests. It will be interesting to see if Sehwag has something to say on this or if he comes up with a tweet praising Jadeja.
