Bengaluru, Dec 6: As India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja turned 28 today (December 6), fans and team-mates wished him a happy birthday on social media. However, Rohit Sharma's tweet asking Jadeja for his "real age" was received with both surprise and fun.
While there have been instances of young cricketers fudging their age, the latest tweet from Rohit asking Jadeja to "tell the whole world" his "real age" raises eyebrows.
"Wish you a great birthday jaddu. Please tell the whole world your real age. They think your 28 😂😂😂@imjadeja," Rohit tweeted on Tuesday afternoon. Of course it was intended with fun - trolling his team-mate.
To this tweet, there were many responses by fans who took this as a bit of fun while some where serious about Jadeja's real age.
Jadeja is currently part of the Indian Test team. India face England in the 4th Test at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium, starting on Thursday (December 8). India lead the 5-match rubber 2-0. Rohit is out of cricket action after undergoing a successful thigh surgery last month.
