Taking to social media, Ravindra Jadeja expressed skepticism about “scripted interviews” and urged followers not to trust them.
Ravindra Jadeja dismissed his father’s claims of a strained relationship between them, calling the interview with a popular daily nonsensical and scripted. Anirudhsinh Jadeja alleged that their relationship soured after the cricketer tied the knot with Rivaba in April 2016.
Jadeja expressed skepticism towards “scripted interviews” and asserted that efforts were being made to tarnish his and his wife’s reputation. His wife holds a prominent position as a member of the Gujarat Legislative Assembly.
“The things mentioned in the interview to Divya Bhaskar are meaningless and false. Those are one-sided comments that I deny them. The attempt to tarnish the image of my wife is improper and condemnable. I have a lot to say, but it is better that I don’t reveal those things in public.”
During an interview with Divya Bhaskar, Jadeja’s father made serious allegations against Rivaba, accusing her of causing a significant division within their family. He further emphasized that a deep-seated animosity exists between the two families.
“Within three months of the marriage, she told me that everything should be transferred to her name. She created a rift in our family. She didn’t want the family and desired an independent life. There’s no relation with anyone in the family; there’s just hate.”
Jadeja is presently recovering from a hamstring injury that prevented him from participating in India’s second Test against England. This injury was sustained during the Hyderabad Test, prompting Sourabh Kumar and Washington Sundar to take his place in the squad for the Vizag match.
The question that lingers now is whether Jadeja will recuperate in time to be selected for the Indian squad in the upcoming three Tests to be held in Rajkot, Ranchi, and Dharamsala.
