Twitter reacts as Jadeja recreates ‘worst ball of all time’
Ravindra Jadeja had recreated an infamous incident of his from four years ago (2015). On the last ball of the 39th over, with both Faf du Plessis and Dean Elgar trying to steady the ship for South Africa, captain Virat Kohli threw the ball to Jadeja in hope of breaking the run-stand.
However, after five decent deliveries, Jadeja ran through a forgettable moment on the very last ball. As Jadeja went through his action to release the ball to complete the over, the ball had slipped out of his hand, with the ball awkwardly landing first a few metres right in front of the stumps at the non-strikers’ end.
In a weird turn of events, the ball had bounced five times before it eventually reached the wicketkeeper and was kind of rolling over to the other side.
South Africa skipper Du Plessis attempted to take the mickey by threatening to go for a hockey drive but at the very last moment, he decided to pull out. This moment of madness triggered smiles and giggles from every single player which even left du Plessis giggling.
Ravindra Jadeja himself saw the hilarious side of the incident too, Finally, the on-field umpire indicated it as a no-ball owing to the ball bouncing more than two times.
On top of that, the highlight of the incident was that it was kind of similar to that of a delivery he bowled to Jonny Bairstow in the year 2015, which was cited on television by the host broadcaster.
Well, it was a forgettable moment for Ravindra Jadeja as no player in the game of cricket likes to see awkward moments being recreated.
Jadeja last series bhi flop and iss baar bhi 😴😴

I remember Sanjay Manjrekar praising Jadeja’s accuracy yesterday and he is going for runs today.
Manjrekar is undoubtedly the God of Jinxing. 😤#INDvSA
