All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is known for his swift action on the field. The left-arm spinner is one of India’s most popular cricketers in recent times.
The Indian cricketer was born on December 6, 1988. Hailing from the land of cricketing princes like Ranjitsinhji and Duleepsinhji, Jadeja grew up modest beginnings as one of three siblings. Anirudh singh, his father, was a security guard whereas his mother Lata was a nurse. Jadeja lost his mother when he was still in his teens. The pain of losing his mother was such that Jadeja considered giving up on his dream of playing the sport for the country.
Jadeja was initially given the nickname of ‘Rockstar’ by Shane Warne while he was at the Rajasthan Royals. But when he made it to the Indian team, his teammates started calling him Jaddu. But, perhaps the most popular nickname is ‘Sir’ which was bestowed upon him by the social media.
He has an Audi A4. On the car’s boot, the word Ravi is inscribed, as stated by the Rhiti Sports website. Jadeja has two horses, named Ganga and Kesar. Those horses are stationed at his farmhouse near Jamnagar. Jadeja owns a restaurant in Rajkot called Jaddu’s Food Field.
Jadeja got married to Riva Solanki, an engineering graduate hailing from the Junaghad district of Gujarat. Ravindra’s net worth is estimated to be around $7 million (Rs. 45.2 Crore).
