In a recent question answer session, Indian Test skipper Virat Kohli and Shikhar Dhawan revealed that Ravindra Jadeja is the selfie king of the Indian team. Jadeja has been quite a sensation in the social media platform regularly sharing selfies with his fans, especially with horses. A few days earlier Jadeja was penalized for taking selfies with his wife just 12-13 feet away from the lions in the Gir Wildlife sanctuary and was accused of violating wildlife rules.

The left arm spinner who is having a great match against the Kiwis in the ongoing Test at Kanpur also revealed that we would prefer to become Mr. India if ever he was to become a superhero. Jadeja who scored 42 and 50 with the bat in the two innings also took five wickets in the first and is turning out to be a trump card for Kohli. Talking about a romantic date, Jaddu said he would love to go to Paris with his wife for a candle light dinner.

The current crop of cricketers is often seen flaunting tattoos on their body and guys like Kohli, KL Rahul, and Jadeja proudly display their tattoos in front of their fans.

India has put the brakes on New Zealand in their historic 500th Test and is on the verge of victory at the end of Day 4. India scored a decent 319 in the first innings courtesy half centuries from Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara and a well made 42 by Ravindra Jadeja. New Zealand looked in full control of proceedings until the 3rd morning when Jadeja and Ashwin wrecked havoc and bowled out the Kiwis for 262 from 159/1. Ashwin finished with 4/93 while Jadeja picked 5 wickets giving away only 73 runs.

Murali Vijay and Cheteshwar Pujara continued their good form as the duo notched up their second fifty of the match and when Vijay was dismissed at the score of 185, India was in full control of the match looking to build the agony on New Zealand. Rohit Sharma came back to  form with a brisk 68 and Jaddu chipped in with a swashbuckling half-century, an innings constructed with 2 fours and 3 sixes. He celebrated his fifty in a unique manner swaying his bat like a warrior as Virat Kohli signaled the declaration.

The Kiwis have been pushed to a corner in their 2nd innings in pursuit of chasing a record 434 in their 2nd innings. At 93/4, the Kiwis have to bat out of their skin on the 5th day if they have any chances of saving the Test match.
