Ravindra Jadeja hopes to make quick comeback after successful surgery

Jadeja was ruled out of the Asia Cup earlier in the week

Following India’s massive win over Hong Kong, they were dealt with a piece of bad news, in the form of Ravindra Jadeja’s injury. The all-rounder, who also missed the three-match ODI series against West Indies due to the same reason, is racing against time in an attempt to be fit for India’s pursuit of the T20 World Cup Down Under. 

Taking to Instagram, the all-rounder announced that he has successfully undergone the surgery, and hoped for his rehabilitation soon.

“The surgery was successful. There are many people to thank for their support and involvement - BCCI, my teammates, support staff, physios, doctors and the fans. I will start my rehab soon and try to get back to soon as I can. Thank you to everyone for your kind wishes,” the all-rounder posted on Instagram.

The all-rounder has had a history of injuries on the same knee, which now has forced him to undergo a surgery. While India have not yet announced their squad for the T20 World Cup, Axar Patel is set to be the front-runner to replace Jadeja for the global event.

"The World Cup is still a fair bit away, and we don't want to jump to any conclusions and rule him out or rule him in. We'll see how it goes," Dravid had said before India's Super 4s game against Pakistan on Sunday. 

"Injuries are a part of the sport; it is part of our job to try to manage them. A lot will depend on rehab and the severity of the injury. I don't want to rule him out or don't want to make too many comments until we have a much clearer picture and a better idea, especially because the World Cup is six or seven weeks away from now,” he added.

Prior to his injury, Jadeja was a key performer for the Indian team, including scoring a 29-ball 35 against Pakistan in India’s win in Dubai.
