Everyone remembers the time when MS Dhoni started cracking the famous Sir Jadeja jokes, which spread like wildfire on social media. Ever since fans started making their own versions in no time Twitter and Facebook were all flooded with jokes on Jadeja.
It all began during the time when Ravindra Jadeja just came out of the Under-19 circuit and was beginning to earn a good name for himself in the IPL. He made his International debut soon, but poor performances both with the bat and ball made him a liability. The fact that Dhoni believed in his ability and made him play more matches got the fans furious as it took a lot of time for the “Rockstar” to well and truly settle in.
In the 2010 ICC World T20, Jadeja was again in the news for all the wrong reasons when he conceded six consecutive sixes spread across two overs. His selection was again under the scrutiny and Dhoni’s tactics were being questioned. But with time, Jadeja began to assert himself and made a strong point after missing out on making it to the squad for the ICC World Cup 2011.
He reached the helm of ICC Rankings in both Tests and ODIs at a point and has taken over 300 International wickets in a short span of time. That coupled with the fact that he has three triple centuries in first-class cricket a record that equals Sir Donald Bradman’s feat. Touted as one of the most useful and productive players in the fraternity, the way Jadeja turned the tables is sensational and all inspiring.
But no one can ever forget how hilarious were the Sir Jadeja jokes were. MS Dhoni was one of the main men who made him the cricketer he is today and interestingly, he is the one who made these jokes so popular.
