Gujarat Lions star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has finally lifted the lid on what RCB skipper Virat Kohli said to him that them in splits before their IPL clash at Rajkot.
A photo that became a part of all the memes showed Virat pointing fingers at Jadeja and sharing a laugh with Gujarat Lion’s pacer Praveen Kumar.
In an interview to The Quint, Jadeja has finally revealed what Kohli said to him during that funny conversation.
“The picture was taken right before the match with RCB, where Virat started calling me ‘Rajput’. He has nicknamed me that and I feel super proud when he addresses me with that name. Virat and I are like brothers and these fun conversations are a part of our relationship,” Jadeja said.
“Everyone in the dressing room looked the same, so I thought let’s try something different. Something that is unique. Once Anil Kumble walked up to me when I was sitting with my face down. He thought I was KL Rahul and started speaking in Kannada. Beards have created a lot of confusion in the team,” Jadeja was quoted as saying by The Quint.
Jadeja was the first one to be a part of the #BreakTheBeard trend and he posted the video of his transformation on Twitter and Instagram with the caption, “Change the game on the field. Change the look in the dressing room.”
