Ravindra Jadeja has been dropped from the third and final ODI against Bangladesh as India look to finish the series with a semblence of respect, having lost the series 0-2. Indian fans had got used to seeing Ravindra Jadeja's name in the team, despite the left-handed batsman not being in great form with the bat.
Stuart Binny has replaced Ravindra Jadeja for the match.
Jadeja is all rounder in the Indian team, but his performances of late have been lacklustre. In his last sixteen matches, Jadeja has not scored even one half century, though his bowling record at about 15 wickets is good.
But his bowling performance is clearly not enough to guarantee a place in the team.
This has opened the doors for Stuart Binny, who needs to grab the opportunity with both hands and make a strong claim for the crucial all rounder's role.
Binny might have been with the Indian team of late, but he has not been given enough chances to play, with Jadeja being the preferred choice.
One feels Staurt Biiny should be given more chances to provide a tough competition to Ravindra Jadeja, which will only help Indian cricket in the long run.
With Jadeja being dropped from the team, Twitter fans went beserk, cracking jokes on him.
Here are some of the tweets:
