New Delhi, September 4. India’s senior all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja will miss the T20 World Cup in Australia as he will undergo knee surgery which will keep him out of the game indefinitely. Jadeja played in the first two matches against Pakistan and Hong Kong in the Asia Cup. He brings the necessary 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 side. A senior BCCI (Cricket Board of India) official told PTI on condition of anonymity, “Jadeja’s knee injury on his right leg is very serious.
He will undergo a major surgery and will be out of cricket for an indefinite period. At this stage, if we look at the assessment of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) medical team, no time frame can be given for his return to the international level. Head coach Rahul Dravid is known to keep things to himself. He did not reveal anything about Jadeja’s availability for the T20 World Cup.
Dravid said before the match against Pakistan in Dubai: “I don’t want to throw Jadeja out of the World Cup right now. Let’s see how he does in the six-eight weeks before the T20 World Cup. It’s a part of every player’s life. It is yet to be confirmed whether it is an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) problem which may take more than six months to recover from, but to some extent it can be said that Jadeja is out for at least three months.
Understandably, Jadeja’s knee has been a problem for a long time and if you look at the last year, he has transformed into a batting all-rounder in all formats with his left arm spin from his main role to another. a skill. It is believed that there is pressure on his right knee as he holds the front foot while bowling.
In his senior career (domestic and international), Jadeja has taken 897 wickets in 630 matches across formats, bowling over 7000 overs, including domestic first-class, List A and IPL matches. He has scored 13,000 runs at senior level. It will take him a long time to return to international cricket as he also has to undergo a rigorous ‘rehab’ post-surgery.
