India and England are battling out for the final Test, even though the outcome of the series is already decided. Currently, England is slightly ahead in the game, but they don't have complete dominance which looked possible when they had reduced the Indian team to 174/6 at the end of day two. Indian batsman or you can say 'swordsman' Ravindra Jadeja fought it out brilliantly against a pumped up England attack.

Jadeja scored unbeaten 86 runs and could have reached his maiden Test hundred but his batting partner Jasprit Bumrah was run-out when India's total read 292 on the scoreboard. This kept England's lead to just 40 runs in after the first innings. 

The Saurashtra all-rounder gathered praise for his outstanding batting in a tough situation. He was so good that even the official Twitter account of ICC couldn't stop themselves from calling him 'Sir'. 

The 'Sir' Jadeja fans did enjoy it, but some fans on social media were not happy with this gesture of ICC. Many of the Pakistani cricket lovers were irked when ICC referred to him as 'Sir' and vented their feelings on Twitter.

Here are the tweets:
