Ravi Shastri is trolled by Twitteratis after Ravindra Jadeja injury claims
Ravi Shastri's dubious claims of Ravindra Jadeja being injured before the second Test at Perth between India and Australia has left Twitter users fuming
the Indian coach Ravi Shastri has been taken to task by users on the micro-blogging site Twitter for elaborating on Ravindra Jadeja's fitness status, which served as a justification for the all-rounder's absence from the Indian playing XI for the Perth Test against Australia. When asked about Jadeja's exclusion, Ravi Shastri had said, "Jadeja had taken an injection four days after coming to Australia because of some stiffness in his shoulder. It took a while for that injection to settle down. At Perth, we felt he was about 70 to 80 per cent fit, and we didn't want to risk him. If he is 80% fit here, he'll play.”
Here's how Twitteratis reacted to Ravi Shastri's mysterious claims on Ravindra Jadeja's fitness during the presser at the Melbourne Cricket Ground:

#RaviShastri and #Kohli made a selection mistake. Shastri first said Jadeja was not fit from the beginning leaving to Aus. Then he was only 80% fit before the test but still included in the 13.— à®¨à¯à®²à¯à®²à¯à®à¯à®à¯à®®à¯/NELLAIseemai (@nellaiseemai) December 24, 2018
Why? first why he was taken to Aus if not fully fit?
why 80% fit Jadeja was in 13?
i can't understand #RaviShastri .. u r thinking indians are fools.. or we don't know any thing about ckt.. if #jadeja is unfit why @BCCI select #kuladeep. u r the coach of the Indian team or any school drill master. we r feeling so sad about u r behavior.#INDvAUS— à°ªà±à°°à°¦à±à°ªà± movies only....

They say wisdom comes with age, but in Ravi Shastri's case age seems to have come alone! Look at the somersaults he and the "full of himself" Kohli are making after goofing up the selection of the team for the Perth Test. Jadeja, who fielded as substitute "was not fully fit!"— Dr.Srinivasa Gowda (@drsrinivasgowda) December 24, 2018
