India’s Champions Trophy fate may be hanging in balance but the team is celebrating. The reason happens to be very compelling, as star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was blessed with a baby girl a couple of days ago.

The joy, therefore, has been boundless among the fans and his teammates. Jaddu has been flooded with congratulatory tweets and messages since the time the news broke.

Indian captain Virat Kohli was also delighted to see his strike spinner enter fatherhood and expressed his happiness on Twitter.

“Congratulations Jaddu on the new journey of Fatherhood, lots of love to the little angel @imjadeja,” Kohli tweeted


Jadeja is married to Reeva Solanki, a mechanical engineer. The pair tied the knot last year on April 17th and the news about the couple expecting parenthood was first reported in March this year. The 28-year-old cricketer was well aware of the expectancy date but had to leave his wife due to the Champions Trophy commitments.

Jadeja’s focus will be now on helping India get out of the tough must-win situation. He had a great start to the Champions Trophy campaign, picking 2/43 against Pakistan in the tournament opener but failed to reproduce the same performance in the following game against a weaker looking Sri Lanka. He could manage just 0/53 in the game which India shockingly lost.

The defending champions will be meeting South Africa next at the KIA Oval, London on Sunday. The fixture is been touted as a virtual quarterfinal where the winner progresses to the semi-final and the loser flies back home.
