  • Ravindra Jadeja scored a much-needed fifty in the ongoing World Cup semifinal and still is on the crease looking solid
  • The hope of Indian fans is riding on Jadeja
  • Ravichandran Ashwin took to Twitter to praise Jadeja and putting his faith in him just like the Indian fans

India's run chase of 240 against New Zealand started off on a disastrous note as they were reduced to 5/3 in the fourth over, riding on some brilliant spells from the Kiwi pacers Trent Boult and Matt Henry. Both the openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul were caught behind off Henry while skipper Virat Kohli was trapped in front of the wicket by Boult. Rishabh Pant and Dinesh Karthik then looked to stabilize the Indian chase but in the process, Karthik was sent back to the pavilion courtesy of a stunning catch by Jimmy Neesham at point.

Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant got good starts but couldn’t capitalise. Ravindra Jadeja came to the crease to ease off some pressure. He scored a much-needed fifty in the ongoing World Cup semifinal and still is on the crease looking solid. 

Jadeja and MS Dhoni hold the key to India’s victory. At the intense point when the Indian fans have their hearts in their mouth, Ravichandran Ashwin took to Twitter to praise Jadeja and putting his faith in him just like the Indian fans.

Ashmin compared Jadeja’s innings with Grant Elliott's knock in the 2015 World Cup semifinal who steered New Zealand to victory with his 84 from 73 balls in a rain-interrupted semifinal.

Netizens couldn’t agree more:

Fans are praying that Ashwin is right and Jadeja brings a victory home for the Men IN Blue.
