Team India's all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja refuted the allegation levelled by his father Anirudhsinh Jadeja, who had reportedly accused the cricketer's wife Rivaba of creating differences in the family. In a post on X, Ravindra called his father's interview with a Gujarati daily "scripted" and said it was an attempt to "tarnish" his wife, Rivaba's image.

Ravindra Jadeja captioned a graphic plate, which contained a message in Gujarati, on his X, which read, "All the things said in the nonsense interview are meaningless and untrue. It is a one-sided story and I completely deny the allegations. The attempts made to tarnish the image of my wife are truly reprehensible and unbecoming. I, too, have a lot to say but won't do it publicly."
