Ravindra Jadeja is famous for his swordplay celebration with his bat whenever he achieves a half century on the pitch. His incredible celebration has gathered so much attention that even Aussie cricketer David Warner mimicked the celebration in one of his videos on Instagram. However, now without a bat to hold, Jadeja gets to the real deal, picks up an actual sword and swings it around! Fans rush to see the Team India icon’s sword skills on his recent Instagram clip, but there is Michael Vaughan in the comments pulling off a hilarious joke!
The superstar all rounder, currently in self isolation amidst the nationwide lock down due to the novel Coronavirus pandemic, has teamed up with his fellow sportspersons of the country to entertain the fans through social media, and for Jadeja, it was his swordplay video that he posted yesterday on his official Instagram, along with the caption: “A “SWORD” MAY LOOSE IT’S SHINE,BUT WOULD NEVER DISOBEY IT’S MASTER. #rajputboy” Check out the video here-
While the netizens were crazy excited to see the Men in Blue stalwart showcase his finesse with the sword, it was the former English cricketer Michael Vaughan who came up with a witty comment, making a reference to the growing grasses in Jadeja’s lawn.
“Your grass needs a mow Rockstar !!! 😜 😜” Vaughan commented.
Jadeja agreed to it, coming back with an equally hilarious reply to the former England skipper, saying that the job of mowing grass was unknown to him: “🤪 🤪 yes but I don’t know how to cut it 😤 😤 #coronaeffect”
Like Jadeja or Vaughan, many current and former cricketers are now in their homes, as all cricket fixtures have been either cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 crisis.
The 2020 season of the Indian Premier League had already met with a postponement from its earlier inaugural date of 29th March to 15th April, as the lock down was supposed to be in effect until 14th April.
However, the central and state governments of the country are all seeking an extension of the lock down, as the number of victims rises day by day. This will see a further postponement of IPL this year, or even a possibility of hosting the cash rich cricket league in winter.
