Team India’s star player Ravindra Jadeja, who is placed second in the current ICC Rankings for all-rounders in Test and third for Test bowlers, expressed his anger on Twitter when a fan called him by the wrong name.
Jadeja has played 34 Tests, 136 ODIs and 40 T20Is for India but the fact that an admirer called him by a wrong name made the Gujarat lad furious.
In his tweet, Jaddu mentioned that someone came to compliment him for his bowling in the last match against Sri Lanka but called him ‘Ajay’.
“Someone came to me and said”well ball ajay. you bowled brilliantly in last match”.played 9 years of international cricket for country and still ppl dont remember my name.#stupidity #gavaar”, he wrote in his tweet.
Here is Ravindra Jadeja’s tweet:

Jadeja’s frustrations are justified as every cricketer dreams of representing his nation and getting recognized. In a country where cricketers are as celebrated as film stars, this must have been a genuine mistake but surely irked Jadeja.
