India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja trolled Kolkata after the franchise's social media handle tried to troll Chennai skipper MS Dhoni. The fourth Test between Australia and England ended in a draw. During the final overs of the game, Australia placed a very attacking field with all their fielders close to the batters.

Taking to Twitter,  Kolkata's social media handle posted a collage showing Australia's field placement and an image of a match where Gautam Gambhir placed a similar field placement against MS Dhoni when he played for Pune Super Giants. They captioned the post as, “That moment when a classic move in Test cricket actually reminds you of a T20 masterstroke.

The post caught the eye of Jadeja who trolled the franchise by retweeting their post. Jadeja wrote that the field placement was not a masterstroke but just a show-off. “Its not a master stroke! Just a show off,” tweeted Ravindra Jadeja. You can see the tweet from Jadeja below.

Meanwhile, Jadeja has been out of action since picking up an elbow injury during the first Test against New Zealand. He was also not picked for India's tour of South Africa. The all-rounder will be eyeing a return during the West Indies tour of India in February.
