Fans on social media greeted Jadeja's axeing with both disbelief and joy. Many were surprised that captain MS Dhoni had finally decided to exclude Jadeja from the Playing XI.

Both Dhoni and Jadeja play for the same Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise, Chennai Super Kings (CSK). The skipper has always backed Jadeja even when he has not been in form. But with Axar Patel in the team, Jadeja was facing stiff competition. Axar is playing in today's match.

In the opening two games of the series, Jadeja scored 32 and 19. He went wicketless in both contests. So far, he has played 121 ODIs scoring 1,804 runs and taking 144 wickets.

The consensus on social media was it was the right decision to keep Jadeja out.

Here are some of the reactions from Twitter
