Before the second Test against Australia, Ravindra Jadeja told the trollers, ‘Lazy people who sit in front of the computer…’




Ravindra Jadeja made a stunning return to the Indian Test team in the first match of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia in Nagpur. The left-arm spin all-rounder took seven wickets in the match and also scored a half-century. The performance earned him the ‘Player of the Match’ trophy. As world no. With India taking on the world number one team in the second Test starting on Friday, Jadeja’s role will be crucial as the Rohit Sharma-led side look to make it to the final of the World Test Championship.

Jadeja recently opened up on being trolled on social media and made some scathing comments. “The day I didn’t do well, they start trolling me abusing me. They say that without knowing how hard I have worked to reach this point. Small, small things… so much There are all the struggles and sacrifices that I don’t even remember now,” Jadeja told The Indian Express.

“Computer Foolish people keep sitting in front, keep making memes and keep writing whatever they want. (Those lazy people sitting in front of the computer with nothing to do, they sit and make memes and write whatever comes to their mind). To be honest, those things don’t matter to me. If they did, I wouldn’t have reached this far… They don’t know what I had to go through to reach here. They say he is playing IPL and earning so much money… Believe me, in IPL they don’t select you by looking at your face.

Meanwhile, Jadeja’s spin partner Ravichandran Ashwin moved up to the second spot in the ICC men’s Test bowlers’ rankings after his eight-wicket haul against Australia in the opening Test in Nagpur on Wednesday. Jadeja, who made a successful comeback after almost five months due to a knee injury, has moved up to 16th position thanks to his player-of-the-match-winning effort in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy series opener.

The spin duo troubled Australia in the first Test, sharing 15 wickets between them as India won by an innings of 132 runs inside three days.

Ashwin ensured that India secured a resounding victory before tea on the third day as the veteran off-spinner took 5/37 in the second innings and 3/42 earlier in the match.

The 36-year-old is 21 rating points behind Australia skipper Pat Cummins and is battling to return to the No.1 ranking for the first time since 2017.
