This happened during India’s tour to the West Indies in 2013. In a game, Suresh Raina dropped a couple of catches off Ravindra Jadeja’s bowling. Jaddu immediately showed his displeasure and muttered some words to Raina. This enraged the latter and a verbal spat began.
The other members of the team had to separate the two. Even the verbal dual continued in the dressing room. Reports claimed that Jaddu questioned Raina’s intensity on the field. He even said that Raina’s demotion from captaincy was mainly because of his poor fielding. It wasn’t acceptable for Jadeja to cuss a senior member despite playing together for a long time.
