Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was blessed with a baby girl on Thursday. Unfortunately, the ace cricketer can’t lay his eyes on his first baby since he is currently in England with Team India for the ongoing ICC Champions Trophy.
His wife Reeva Solanki, whom Jadeja married in April last year, and her infant baby are reportedly hale and hearty in the hospital back in India.
If you are a believer in coincidences, then here is one for you. Former captain MS Dhoni’s daughter Ziva was born in 2015 when he was leading Team India for the 2015 World Cup held in Australia and New Zealand. India lost to Australia in the semi final match then. Since ICC Champions trophy is considered as prestigious as the World Cup, we need to see how Team India’s fortunes will be this time around.
Virat Kohli’s side had a dream start in the tournament as they thrashed Pakistan by 124 runs in their opening game. India is now aiming to book their place in the semi-finals by winning their second game against Sri Lanka that is being played on Thursday. Will Jadeja become the star of the match on the day he had become a father?
