Rohit Sharma's Gesture for Ravindra Jadeja During Match Reveals A Message: WATCH!Home > News Shots > Sports news
After top order Indian players fell like cards at Old Trafford in Manchester during the match against New Zealand in the semi-final it was all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and former captain MS Dhoni who fought till the end to take the game closer. But to their bad luck, they failed to get India over the line as the Men in Blue crashed out of the ICC World Cup 2019 after a heartbreaking 18-run defeat at the hands of New Zealand in the semi-final.
According to Times Now report, soon, after Jadeja reached his half-century and celebrated, Rohit Sharma gestured towards him from the dressing the room. The video of Rohit Sharma's gesture is going viral and winning over the internet.
The left-hand all-rounder, who was recently called a 'bits and pieces' cricketer by former cricketer turned commentator Sanjay Manjrekar, produced a dream knock to get India close to the target with a brilliant 116-run stand for the 7th wicket with MS Dhoni, who also supported him well with a gritty half-century, Times Now further reported.
Two-time world champions India lost key batsmen Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul for just one run each. They slumped to five for three in pursuit of a target of 240 and were 24 for four when Dinesh Karthik was out.
Jadeja hit well-struck sixes off both Jimmy Neesham and left-arm spinner Mitchell Santner during a 39-ball fifty. With 10 overs left, India were 150 for six and needing a further 90 runs off the final 60 balls of the innings. It was Jadeja, who got them closer with a superb straight six off fast bowler Lockie Ferguson and, with five overs left, the target was down to 52. But left-hander Jadeja's 59-ball innings, featuring four fours and four sixes, ended when he skyed Boult to New Zealand captain Kane Williamson.
