Jadeja injured during T20 Asia Cup
World Cup to be played in October-November
New Delhi. India’s senior all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja will not be able to play in the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia as he will have to undergo knee surgery. Due to this he will be out of the game indefinitely. Jadeja played in the first two matches against Pakistan and Hong Kong in the Asia Cup 2022. He gives the needed balance to the team with his all-round performance, so the absence of the 33-year-old veteran left-arm spinner will be a major setback for Rohit Sharma’s team. It is known that India is waiting for the T20 World Cup trophy since 2007. Apart from this, the Indian team has not been able to win the ICC trophy since 2013.
A senior BCCI official told news agency PTI on the condition of confidentiality, ‘Jadeja’s knee injury on his right leg is very serious. He will have to undergo a major surgery and will be out of cricket indefinitely. At this time, if the assessment of the medical team of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) is seen, then no time limit can be given for his return to the international level. It is not yet confirmed whether this is a case of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which may take more than 6 months to recover. But to some extent it can be said that Jadeja will be out of the game for at least 3 months.
It is understandable that Ravindra Jadeja has had a knee problem for a long time and looking at the last one year, he has been transforming himself into a batting all-rounder across formats, with his left arm spin playing a key role. is being transformed into another skill. It is believed that while keeping his front foot while bowling, there is pressure on his right knee.
