Team India’s star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja’s fascination for pet horses is a known fact and he constantly keeps updating posts showing that on his social media pages. On Thursday, May 20, he shared a video of riding on one of his horses.
Whenever Jadeja gets some off-time, he makes sure to spend some quality time with his pet horses as that is what gives the player immense satisfaction. After returning from the Indian Premier League (IPL) too, the all-rounder shared a picture from his farmhouse. The Chennai Super Kings allrounder had a stellar IPL till the tournament had to be called off due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases inside teams’ bio-bubbles.
CSK’s coaches Michael Hussey and L Balaji were the two members from their camp who were tested positive for the virus. CSK were in the top four till the time IPL was going smoothly and that was down to the star all-rounder’s brilliance. He scored 131 runs at a whopping strike rate of 161.72 and picked up six wickets. His all-round brilliance stunned RCB as first he scored a breathtaking 62 runs from 28 balls and then took two wickets to hand CSK a thumping victory.

Ravindra Jadeja ready to continue his T20 form in Test cricket too
After missing out on the home series against England, Jadeja will make a comeback in whites in the ICC World Test Championship final (WTC) against New Zealand and the subsequent five-match series against England in the month of August-September. The 30-year old player is one of the vital cogs in the Indian team as his economical bowling and handy contributions lower down the order could prove to be game-changing in Southampton the venue for the final between India and New Zealand.
The all-rounder is set to join the team in Mumbai, and serve his mandatory quarantine period with other members, before departing on June 2 to England. The BCCI have apparently arranged charted flights for its men and women players and are conducting daily COVID tests to make sure each and every player remains fit and raring to go for an important series ahead.
