Ravindra Jadeja May Miss the T20 World Cup Due to Knee Surgery

Ravindra Jadeja’s injured right knee will need surgery, which is expected to keep him out of action for an unknown period of time. But India’s head coach, Rahul Dravid, said it was too soon to say he wouldn’t play in the T20 World Cup, which will be held in Australia in October and November.

On Saturday, September 3, PTI reported that “Jadeja injured his knee, so it’s clear that he won’t be able to play in the Asia Cup,” Dravid said before India’s Super 4 match against Pakistan. The medical team is taking care of him, and he will see the doctors and experts. The World Cup is still a long way off, so we don’t want to make any hasty decisions about whether or not he will play. Let’s see how things go.

Injuries are a normal part of sports, and it’s our job to try to deal with them. A lot will depend on how well the injury heals and how bad it is. I don’t want to count him out or say too much until we have a clearer picture and a better idea, especially since the World Cup is coming up in about six or seven weeks.

An unnamed BCCI official told PTI that Jadeja’s injury was pretty serious. The official said that he will have major knee surgery and won’t be able to play for an indefinite period. Based on what the NCA’s medical team has said so far, there is no way to tell when he will return to international play.

Jadeja played the first two games of the Asia Cup against Pakistan and Hong Kong. His all-around skills, along with those of Hardik Pandya, give the team the balance it needs, and Rohit Sharma’s team will miss him.

In both of India’s games so far at the Asia Cup, Jadeja has been a key player. He bowled two good overs against Pakistan before being moved up to No. 4 in India’s chase of 148 because he was the only left-handed batter in India’s top seven. He helped India win with a score of 35 off 29 balls and ensured that Pakistan didn’t use Mohammad Nawaz’s fourth over until the last over of the game. He got Hong Kong’s top scorer, Babar Hayat, out of the game and only let 15 runs through in his four overs.

This is not the first time Jadeja’s right knee has given him trouble. In July, he missed the ODI part of India’s tour of the West Indies because of an injury to the same joint.
