Ravindra Jadeja, the Indian all-rounder, is certainly one of the best fielders of the world and he is an asset for whichever team he plays because he contributes not only with the bat and ball but with his fielding as well.
Though Moeen Ali may have been adjudged as the player of the match in the last match of Chennai Super Kings which was against Rajasthan Royals, we can’t ignore the essential fact that Ravindra Jadeja also played an important role in CSK’s win as he not only took four catches while fielding but also dismissed two batsmen with his bowling including the wicket of Jos Buttler (49), the highest scorer of RR who could have increased the chances of RR’s win to a great extent if Jadeja had not got him out. Ravindra Jadeja took catches of Manan Vohra, Riyan Parag, Chris Morris and Jaydev Unadkat.
The fans of Jadeja were also very excited with his brilliant performance and they expressed their happiness on the social media networks, especially on the micro-blogging site Twitter. In fact, some of his fans called him the greatest of all times (G.O.A.T) fielder. Here are some selected reactions:

Faf du Plessis, Ravindra Jadeja and Suresh Raina together on the field shouldn't be legal.

Some time ago, the former England cricketer Michael Vaughan slammed the Board of Control for Cricket In India (BCCI) for not including Ravindra Jadeja in the A+ category (Rs. 7 crore) when the board announced the list of 28 Indian cricketers who were awarded with the annual contracts.
Michael Vaughan called it a disgrace that Jadeja was not included in the top category after Virat Kohli and post Jadeja’s wonderful performance in the match against RR, Vaughan once again took to Twitter and wrote, “That’s exactly why @imjadeja is so so so valuable to any team … How the @BCCI don’t have him in the top contract bracket is beyond me … !!!!!! #IPL …”

Not only Michael Vaughan but the former national selector MSK Prasad also expressed surprise over Jadeja not being included in top bracket because Jadeja not only plays in all the three formats for the country but also has good ICC rankings.
As of now, Jadeja is everywhere on the social media and this man has to perform well if CSK wants to win the IPL 2021. What do you say?
