Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja had a funny response to a reporter’s question during the post-match press conference on Friday. Team India defeated Scotland by 8 wickets in a Super 12 match in Dubai.
Following the conclusion of the game, Jadeja was involved in a press conference where he was subjected to a funny question from a reporter. After the win, he was asked:
“Everyone’s saying we will have a chance if Afghanistan will beat New Zealand. What will you do next if Afghanistan doesn’t beat New Zealand?“
For context, the Afghans need to defeat the Black Caps in their final group game for India to have a chance to qualify for the semifinals. If Kane Williamson’s men manage to win the game, India will be eliminated in the group stage itself.
In response to the reporter’s question, Jadeja came up with a funny but straightforward response. He said:
“Then what?…. We’ll pack our bags and go back home.“

Earlier, the Indian bowlers restricted Scotland to a paltry 85. Jadeja and Mohammad Shami took identical figures of 3/15 and Jasprit Bumrah took a couple of wickets. The Men in Blue needed to chase the target down in under 7.1 overs to have a better net run rate than that of Afghanistan and New Zealand.
Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul carried over their good from the previous game and stitched a 70-run partnership in just five overs. The platform was set and the formalities were completed by Suryakumar Yadav with a sumptuous six.
