Many other celebrities expressed their disappointment and slammed Kedar Jadhav for his poor performance at a crucial moment of the match. Check out some of the reactions from other known celebrities below :

When Kedar Jadhav came in to bat, CSK needed 39 from 21. He blocked his first, got his first run of his sixth ball. At the time, there was still Jadeja, Dwayne Bravo, Shardul Thakur, Karn Sharma & Chahar to come. ALL of whom can bat. #CSKvsKKR #IPL2020— Raunak Kapoor (@RaunakRK) October 7, 2020

This is so disappointing for #CSK’s middle order. From 90 for 1 in 10 overs to losing by 10 runs. This is so rare from #CSK. Can someone give me a valid reason why we still stick with Jadhav ? What’s his role in the team ? #KKRvCSK— Dhaya Alagiri (@dhayaalagiri) October 7, 2020

However, after few minutes, Ashok deleted the tweet and regretted for posting such tweet against an individual. He said that he got a bit emotional as a fan of CSK. “since I was a sportsman and played competitive sport, I somewhere felt I shouldn’t have said that about Jadhav” he said in another tweet and wished CSK to come back stronger.
Here’s the tweet :
Hmm since I was a sportsman and played competitive sport, I somewhere felt I shouldn’t have said that about Jadhav. The fan in me got a bit emotional I guess. Everyone has their bad day! Anyway, I really hope #Csk comes back stronger! Cheers 🙂— Ashok Selvan (@AshokSelvan) October 7, 2020
On seeing this tweet, followers of the actor asked him not to feel bad as what he said is right. Few even appreciated him for seeing the situation in Jadhav’s perception. Check out some of the reactions Ashok received :
Best tweet i have come across after all the present negativity around #csk tonight ! I can just imagine the pain jadhav might be going thru now. He has been a key player, yet just one league match failure has earned him so much of hatred. #csk will bounce back stronger 🌹— Lodukku_pandi (@filter_koffiee) October 7, 2020
Good sprit. Evan I prepared to scold you for that Tweet. But, now I’m really happy for this apologise. You are great👍🏼— Vmanibharathi (@Vmanibharathi1) October 7, 2020
Its not about bad day. Its about intent. Doen’t matter if he would have got out on 0. But he was not even trying to hit. You cant defend balls when 38 is required in 21 balls and knowing bravo is yet to bat. This is just disgusting. Csk lost important 2 points bec of him😡— SHUBHAM BHIRANI (@SHUBHAMBHIRANI2) October 7, 2020
He didn't have a bad day. He had his usual day! 😆— Sriram 🌐 (@BigOrganicApple) October 7, 2020
