The IPL 2021 has been postponed indefinitely by the Board of Control for Cricket in India after some players tested COVID-19 positive and it became necessary to postpone the tournament for ensuring the safety and well-being of players, support staff and other people associated with the league.
Earlier the board was thinking of taking the whole tournament to Mumbai but after Amit Mishra of Delhi Capitals and Wriddhiman Saha of Sunrisers Hyderabad tested positive, the board was left with no option other than postponing the IPL 2021. The tournament had reached the halfway mark as all the teams had faced one another at least once and there were some really wonderful performances by the players which will be remembered by the cricket fans. For example, the blistering knock of Mumbai Indians’ Kieron Pollard or Sanju Samson’s century against Punjab Kings (earlier Kings Xi Punjab), beautiful bowling by Harshal Patel and Deepak Chahar, sensational knock by AB de Villiers, etc.
However as per the cricketing analyst and commentator Harsha Bhogle, if there is someone who can be given the title of stand-out all-rounder, it is Ravindra Jadeja who plays for Chennai Super Kings. Harsha Bhogle referred to the match which was played between CSK and Virat Kohli led Royal Challengers Bangalore. In that match, Ravindra Jadeja scored 62 runs in just 28 balls; out of this 62, he scored 37 runs in the one over which was bowled by Harshal Patel. Jadeja then also showed his class in bowling as he took 3 wickets and gave away only 13 runs. These three dismissals included the very important wickets of AB de Villiers and Glenn Maxwell plus Jadeja also played an important role in the run out of Dan Christian.
In his video, Harsha Bhogle praised the Indian all-rounder lavishly and also called him Sir Jadeja.

This soon got noticed by Ravindra Jadeja who took to Twitter to thank Harsha Bhogle for all the appreciation and also requested to call him Ravindra Jadeja only.
This is what Indian cricketer tweeted, “Thanks a lot @bhogleharsha but I will be more happy if you call me Ravindra Jadeja”.
