Even as the semi-final match between India and New Zealand turned into heartbreak for Indian fans, with the ‘Men in Blue’ losing by 18 runs, netizens couldn’t stop praising all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja’s performance in the game.
While India’s batting left many fans disappointed after their top four — Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul — departed early and cheaply, Jadeja did the rescue act with MS Dhoni, scoring 77 off 59 balls.
Many hailed the cricketer for helping India reach close to its target. However, some also went on to troll Sanjay Manjrekar for his earlier comment on Jadeja. “Bits and pieces firing in bits and pieces,” read one of the many comments mocking Manjrekar.
