Sehwag feels that Jadeja should stay away from social media. He gave the example of many big Indian players who have stayed away from social media in difficult times. It also includes Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Sehwag told Cricbuzz, ‘My advice to Jadeja is that all these things will continue. There is no need to pay too much attention to them. If you think on them, you will not be able to concentrate on the field because whenever you take a decision you will be constantly thinking, ‘What will people say? What will the fans think? What will the teammates think?’ In such a situation, you will not be able to take the right decisions. Put your phone in airplane mode. During Covid, you are not getting newspapers in the same way. You can turn off the TV. So stay in your room and enjoy. The more you see, listen and read these things, the worse your mind will be. Whenever you want to update something on social media, put your phone on airplane mode and don’t delete it again.
Sehwag further said, ‘I have seen this with Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Yuvraj Singh and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He did not look at his mobile phone whenever he went through difficult times. He used to stay away from TV or even newspapers. I think Jadeja should practice and have fun playing video games.
