Ravindra Jadeja ‘s counter-attacking knock was the biggest talking point despite India’s heart-breaking defeat to New Zealand in the semi-finals of the ICC World Cup 2019. Jadeja almost single-handedly led India to victory but his dismissal in the crucial stage turned the match towards New Zealand and India lost by 18 runs, reports hindustantimes.com.

And now his wife Rivaba has revealed that the all-rounder was shattered after the loss. Jadeja had hit a whirlwind 77 off just 59 balls.

“He was inconsolable after the loss and kept saying, ‘if I wouldn’t have got out, we could’ve won’. When you lose a match after coming this close, it really hurts and it will be a while before he comes to terms with it,” she told Bombay Times.

His wife went on to add that he has always been the performer when the chips are down and the team needs him.

“If you look at his journey, he has always performed in crunch games, taking wickets and scoring vital runs. When we won the ICC Champions Trophy in 2013, he was the Man of the Match in the final for his all-round performance,” she pointed out.
