All-round star Ravindra Jadeja’s knee injury has disrupted the team’s combination and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is not happy about it. “We are not happy with Jadeja’s injury. He should have kept the World Cup in mind while doing adventurous activities. But he was not responsible and didn’t think the World Cup was on the way. We are not happy with this action by Jadeja,” a source told ANI.
Jadeja had injured his right knee and was ruled out of the 2022 Asian Cup after playing the first two games of the event against Pakistan and Hong Kong.
On Tuesday, Jadeja underwent knee surgery and the all-rounder will start his rehabilitation soon. Jadeja took to Instagram on Tuesday to announce that her surgery was successful.
“The operation was a success. There are a lot of people to thank for their support and involvement – BCCI, my teammates, support staff, physios, doctors and fans. I will start my rehabilitation soon and try to get back as soon as possible. Thank you all for your good wishes,” Jadeja said in a post.
