Twitter explodes as Jadeja gives ‘death stare’ to Anrich Nortje
South Africa pacer Anrich Nortje hasn’t been at his impressive best so far as he has had a lean patch ever since making his Test debut. There was no such impact created by him in the game and he was easily thumped by Indian batsmen all over the park.
Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja were looking too good at the crease and they were able to score runs at a good pace. Anrich Nortje had no other option but to give absolutely everything on the pitch but in a very serious attempt to outsmart the opposition, the pacer, all of a sudden ruffled Ravindra Jadeja’s feathers by delivering him an unexpected bouncer.
But this tactic was to no avail as Ravindra Jadeja ducked it and immediately gave him a death stare. There is absolutely no hiding to the fact that Ravindra Jadeja loves to take on the opposition.
Anrich Nortje, who got smacked by the Indian batsmen on Test debut was keenly waiting for an opportunity to make a breakthrough and so in a desperate attempt to mount pressure on the batsmen, he tried something out of the box.
The pacer pitched a quick bouncer to Jadeja, who had to finally duck it as it was directed towards his helmet. But, in reply, Jadeja got back to his feet and gave the bowler a death stare.
This is how Twitter reacted:

In 2016, after the West Indies series, Ashwin was considered to play at no.6 but he couldn't hold on to that spot and now Jadeja looks good for that spot.
Let's see if he can be a regular No.6/7.

Think it is better to look at the move as backing Jadeja rather than a lack of trust in Saha#INDvSA
