Ravindra Jadeja is arguably one of the finest all-rounders in the world. The 34-year-old cricketer has produced some of the best spells ever seen in Test cricket. His heroics in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia, will be remembered for ages. However, there is another thing apart from cricket, which makes Jadeja a fan favourite and that is his love for horses. On many occasions, the all-rounder has expressed his fondness for the horses. On Sunday, Jadeja shared another picture with the adorable animal, which utterly impressed the fans.
Taking to Twitter, Jadeja shared three pictures with his horse, where he was seen wearing a red T-shirt and blue track pants with sports shoes and a cap. “Forever crush,” the caption read.
