During India Vs New Zealand’s semi-final match in ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament, Ravindra Jadeja’s performance was a ray of hope for the all the cricket fans. Jadeja stepped on the ground when India was 92 for 6 in the 31 overs. It was his 2nd game of the tournament and we must say Jadeja didn’t hold back from giving New Zealand a tough fight. Ravindra scored 77 runs just 59 balls and put on a century partnership with MS Dhoni for the seventh wicket. Now, Jadeja’s wife Rivaba Solanki has now revealed how the cricketer felt after India exited ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
Speaking to Bombay Times Rivaba said, “He was inconsolable after the loss and kept saying, ‘Agar main out nahi hota toh hum jeet gaye hote’. When you lose a match after coming this close, it really hurts and it will be a while before he comes to terms with it. I just told him that everyone is proud of the way he had played and shouldn’t feel bad, as he gave it his everything. I had planned to travel to England to watch the final, but now I will drop that plan.”
I was at the ground during the India vs England game but unfortunately, Ravindra wasn’t a part of the playing XI that day. Still, I was proud of his brilliant catch on the field that day. I have tried to draw him away from thinking about the semi-final match,” she added.
