Jadeja undergoes knee surgery

New Delhi: India star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja underwent surgery for his injured right knee and will start his rehabilitation soon.
Jadeja had to leave the Indian camp at the Asia Cup after their group-stage games because of a long-standing knee injury. Axar Patel had been called up to the Indian team, from the reserves, as Jadeja’s replacement.
In an Instagram post on Tuesday, Jadeja shared his post-surgery picture and said: “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 cricket soon as I can. Thank you to everyone for your kind wishes.”
Jadeja was a key performer for India in both the matches he played at the Asia Cup. Against Pakistan, he bowled two economical overs before being promoted to No. 4 in India’s chase of 148.
He guided India towards victory with his crucial 29-ball 35. In the match against Hong Kong in the group stage match, he dismissed top-scorer Babar Hayat and has showcased an economical bowling as he gave away 15 runs in his four-over quota.
It was the same knee problem that had forced Jadeja to miss the ODI leg of India’s tour of the West Indies in July. (UNI)
