India's star allrounder Ravindra Jadeja had a major reason to be in a jubilant mood before the India's clash against Sri Lanka in the Champions Trophy on Thursday as he becomes a father of a baby girl on Thursday. His wife Reeva Solanki on Thursday gave birth to a baby girl in a private hospital.
The No. 1 Test bowler’s wife expecting broke out in March this year. She was also involved in a minor road accident earlier in the year but was reported safe.
The two tied the knot in April last year. Jadeja put national duty first as he considered being part of the team necessary and ‘more important.’ Jadeja said in an interview to Star Sports, “I had to leave my pregnant wife behind. Family matters a lot to me, but it was also necessary to be part of the team with an important match coming up against Pakistan. Since the family is there to take care of her even they felt that I should play as that’s more important and I decided to do the same.”
