Team India sported jerseys with their mothers name in the fifth match of the recency concluded One Day International (ODI) series against New Zealand. This movie, initiated by Star Sports India, is a symbolic gesture to champion the cause of women in the country.
India’s young off-spinner Jayant Yadav, who made his ODI debut in the match, was happy to sport the jersey with his bother name but he would have been happier had he got a chance to mention names of both his mothers on the jersey.
As pointed out by Anirudh Chaudhry, former Indian cricket team manager and the current BCCI’s treasurer, on Twitter, Jayant was born to Lakshmi but was brought up by Jyoti Yadav; his second mother.
Jyoti Yadav brought him up like her own son and offered all the support which helped him become a Team India cricketer. Jayant would have wanted to sport both the names, added Chaudhry’s tweet. Watch it here:
