Jadeja was in tears after losing the semis, says his wife

XtraTime Web Desk: The whole India was believing that their cricket team would reach the final of the ongoing World Cup when Ravindra Jadeja started counter-attacking New Zealand in the first semifinal, where they lost by just 18 runs in Manchester on Wednesday.

After that his wife Rivaba has revealed that the all-rounder looked devastated after the loss. Jaddu scored 77 runs in just 59 deliveries on that game. “He was inconsolable after the loss and kept saying, ‘if I wouldn’t have got out, we could’ve won’. 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,” she said.

His wife went on to add that he has always been the performer when the chips are down and the team needs him.

“If you look at his journey, he has always performed in crunch games, taking wickets and scoring vital runs. When we won the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013, he was the Man of the Match in the final for his all-round performance,” she pointed out.
