India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been taken to the hospital for a precautionary scan in his knee, following India's loss in the third Test at Headingley, Leeds. The extent of his injury will be revealed in due course.
Jadeja shared a photo of himself in the hospital with a caption reading "not a good place to be at." With India losing the third Test in just four days, Jadeja has another day to recover and be available for selection for the next Test at The Oval, starting September 2.
The Indian team is supposed to leave for London on August 30 and if the scan reports do not reveal anything major, Jadeja will accompany the team. There is a possibility of senior off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin replacing Jadeja on a track which is known to offer help to the slow bowlers.
Ashwin had played a County game for Surrey before the Test series, taking six wickets in an innings.
Jadeja suffered the injury while diving to stop the ball at the boundary. He was seen in some discomfort and was briefly off the field. But he returned later on to bowl. In the series against England, the southpaw has scored 133 runs at 26.60 and with the ball, he has struck twice in three Tests so far.
After winning the Lord's Test, India were bowled out for 78 in the next Test and succumbed to an innings defeat as Joe Root's men leveled the series 1-1. With this win, Root is now England's most successful Test captain with 27 wins to his name.
