Dropped Sitter From Jadeja Reminds Fans of MS Dhoni’s costly miss off Taylor in the 2019 World Cup semis

While thinking back on the 2019 Cricket World Cup, team India faced New Zealand in their famous ill-fated semi-final clash. It was a thriller spread over 28 hours and 24 minutes, consisting of drama and eye-catching cricket, just like a blockbuster movie. By the end of the match, the Black Caps were in last place and had reached the final, where they lost to England. While chasing the target of 240, India rebuilt from 5/3, then once again crumbled to 92/6, but then remained in the match with Ravindra Jadeja and MS Dhoni building a match-winning partnership.
Fans were once again reminded of the costly error of Dhoni in India's 2023 World Cup match against New Zealand in Dharamshala on Sunday. In the 11th over, Ravindra Jadeja missed a sitter off Rachin Ravindra, who was at 12.

On Twitter, many of the fans compared it to Jadeja's CSK teammate Dhoni's error in 2019. One fan had a rather humorous angle and stated that CSK players always 'play for opponents' "Ms Dhoni Dropped NZ batter catch in 2019 World Cup," the fan wrote. Jadeja dropped the NZ Batter catch in 2023 WC. CSK Bloods are destroying Indian teams; they always play for opponents.”
