Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has responded to recent allegations made by his father, Anirudhsinh Jadeja, in a Gujarati daily interview. The interview raised concerns among fans as it suggested strained relations within the family.
Jadeja’s Measured Response
Taking a measured approach, Jadeja addressed the interview on social media, calling it “meaningless” and “a one-sided story.” He firmly denied any claims impacting his wife, Rivaba, stating that attempts to tarnish her image were “wrong and unbecoming.” Notably, he also addressed his father’s claims about living alone and relying on his wife’s pension, stating that “all the things said in the nonsense interview are meaningless and untrue.” While acknowledging there’s more he could say, Jadeja chose to respect privacy and avoid public discourse.
The interview with Anirudhsinh Jadeja contained several claims suggesting a complex family dynamic. Among them were allegations of disputes within the family, where Rivaba’s name was mentioned. Additionally, the father claimed to live alone and depend on his wife’s Rs 20,000 pension, potentially implying a lack of support from his son. However, Jadeja specifically focused on denying claims that negatively impacted his wife and addressed the living situation claim as well within his “meaningless and untrue” statement.
Focus Shifts to the Game
Amidst the turmoil, Jadeja’s return to the India squad for the ongoing Test series against England remains a focal point. Having missed the second Test due to injury, his potential comeback adds intrigue to the cricketing landscape, overshadowing the familial discord temporarily.
