Former Indian batter Ajay Jadeja is currently in the headlines as he is currently active as a mentor for Afghanistan in the ongoing ODI World Cup 2023, and the team is performing brilliantly in the tournament under his guidance. A lot of cricket experts and pundits of the game are giving credit to Jadeja for Afghanistan’s outstanding performance.
Meanwhile, Jadeja also attracted eyeballs for his funny antics during the ongoing Australia vs Afghanistan match of the ODI World Cup 2023. It all happened when Australian batter Marnus Labuschagne complained about a movement in the Afghanistan dressing room near the sight screen. Subsequently, just after Labuschagne's complaint, Afghanistan mentor Ajay Jadeja started dancing in the dressing room.
The video of this funny incident immediately went viral within minutes of being shared by some users over X (formerly Twitter).
Here’s the video of Ajay Jadeja dancing after Australia’s complaint:
