One fan by the name Dr. Rajkumar tweeted “Jaddu saying this with a smile but lot of pain inside. Believe me its trauma! Imagine your own team spectators not supporting you and waiting for your wicket! Still criticizing you even winning 3 man of the matches! @imjadeja you are prince of @ChennaiIPL”. The fans were curious to see the tweet and what made it even more curious was that Ravindra Jadeja had liked the tweet.
