Ravindra Jadeja is the new avenger of India! Why? Well, the all-rounder of the Indian team put an excellent catch in the list of his achievements. This catch is the reason for Neil Wagner’s dismissal on the second of the Test series at Christchurch.
Here is the mind-blowing Ravindra Jadeja catch

Now, while some of his fans are rejoicing this moment, there are others who are bringing certain past tweets to the spotlight. It so happens that back in 2013, former Indian skipper, MS Dhoni posted a tweet about Jadeja’s connection with a ball. This is the first time the term “Sir Jadeja” was brought into existence. According to Dhoni, Ravindra Jadeja does not find the ball, the ball finds him.
Sir jadeja doesn't run to take the catch but the ball finds him and lands on his hand

The tweet was posted by Dhoni following the Chennai Super Kings mention-worthy win during IPL 2013. The match was between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Chennai Super Kings.
Fast-forward to 7 years later, the entire nation is echoing with Jadeja’s name. All of his fans are in disbelief and are full of admiration for the player. Additionally, Sanjay Manjrekar took to Twitter to praise the player. He replied to sports presenter Ridhima Pathak’s tweet saying that if a player is “fit as a fiddle” then anything is possible.
Simple…be fit as a fiddle and enjoy fielding. Jadeja has both these attributes.👍😊 https://t.co/RSf4Rz1veJ

Even though this is an approbation that Ravindra Jadeja truly deserves, some of the fans took it upon themselves to troll Manjrekar. Back in the days, Sanjay Manjrekar used the term “bits and pieces player” for Jadeja. So, now that he is showing the appreciation for the player, the all-rounder’s fans seem to think this is the best time to bring that memory back to life.
Have a look at few of the comments by fans
