Indian cricketer, Ravindrasinh Anirudhsinh Jadeja, 21, has found a long lost cousin in Saeed Ajmal, after watching last night’s semifinal between Australia and Pakistan in World T20. He said he instantly recognized his cousin from his bowling style and skill to concede runs like him. Jadeja is famous for scams with IPL franchises, and he struck fame when he almost single-handedly pulled India out of the World Cup in West Indies few days back. He frequently comes to the rescue of the opposition during tense cricket matches.

“When I saw the last over of yesterday’s match, I knew I had some connection with him,” said Jadeja. Australia needed 18 runs to win in the last over but Saeed Ajmal came in at the right time and ensured Pakistani cricketers retained their tag of “mentally retarded“. Jadeja is feeling happy and wants to contact his cousin soon to make up for lost time. “I heard Facebook helped a father and son unite after 37 years in Britain recently, but I would be unable to unite with my cousin that way. You know, it was not his face that I recognised, but the bowling style. Once Facebook has a cricket application to analyse bowling, I will surely catch him there.
“Both Saeed and I are game changers and can always make the match go in favor of the opposition. But when we interact, I’ll tease him because I got hit for more sixes.” Jadeja was also asked on his opinion on what lost the World Cup for India. “I guess we need IPL-fornication of international cricket to win. After-night parties are like a stimulant to us but this stimulant was absent at T20 World Cup. Models and cheerleaders were missing here; they worked as a stress buster for me. There was no Karrbon Kamal Mobile Catch, so we didn’t want to field. Players missed the Citi Moments of Success, and so we had no moments of success,” said he.
“On behalf of all international cricketers, we want these features in international cricket also.” On being asked about his future plans he said he is thinking of taking some rest after the stressful tour, and is planning to visit Pakistan to meet Saeed, who most probably will avail the honour of getting banned by PCB, which is a popular ritual performed on cricketers in the comic country. Ravindra Jadeja also wants to find his cousin a bitch Indian wife like Sania Mirza and is looking at the prospects of getting Rakhi Sawant interested in it.
