Mumbai: India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was earlier this week left in anger and was embarrassed when one of his fans called him ‘Ajay’ Jadeja (referring to former Indian cricketer) after the conclusion of the third Test against Sri Lanka.
Replying to this, the 29-year-old took to Twitter and was furious in his reply.
“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.- he tweeted.
However, some of the Twitter users had a crack at Jadeja post his tweet.

The Saurashtra cricketer took 10 wickets from three matches in the recently-concluded Test series against Sri Lanka, while he just managed to score 40 runs from the same number of matches.

Virat Kohli and co clinched the Test series 1-0, by winning the second Test by an innings and 239 runs. The other two Tests, meanwhile, ended in thrilling draws....
