The Border-Gavaskar trophy has been one of the most thrilling series in the last few years in terms of the cricket played. But controversies have also been a major part of the series and it would surely be remembered for the sledging episodes that harmed the spirit of the beautiful game. India scripted an emphatic win over the Aussies in the final test and Ravindra Jadeja played a key role in the win.

But apart from playing a good knock with the bat and picking up three wickets in the second innings the all-rounder got involved in a verbal spat with Australian wicketkeeper Matthew Wade over a hindi cuss word. A video was posted on the Indian Cricket Team’s official Facebook page where Ravindra Jadeja was involved in some serious discussions with the Australian skipper Steve Smith and wicket-keeper Matthew Wade. People took notice of it but the video which caught the attention of all many was a video in which Wade asks Jadeja “what is the meaning of mad*****d?”

Jadeja denied knowing the meaning and asked him to go to someone else to know the same. Wade insisted on knowing the meaning to which Jadeja again denied telling him anything of that sort. Wade then claimed that Jadeja used that hindi cuss word against him. Then the Indian all rounder replied “Ok if you want to take it you can take it.”

Earlier during the series, expert cricket analyst Harsha Bhogle posted on twitter that the series would be remembered more for its controversies than the performances of the players. The way things have concluded it looks like Bhogle’s words were on point as the series has been full of controversies right from the start. The relation between the two cricketing nations has been deeply hurt and the series was definitely not played in the right spirit to say the least.
