Ravindra Jadeja is an important part of the Indian lineup. The left-handed all-rounder has performed effectively both with the ball and bat in the series against Australia. Apart from this, his great fielding has also been seen. Who can forget Steve Smith being run-out straight on the throw. Jadeja’s injury is a matter of great concern for the Indian team. He has already dropped out of the last match of the series against Australia, as well as playing in the opening matches of the Test series against England is doubtful.
On the fifth day of the Sydney Test, the Indian batsmen showed amazing spirit and got the match drawn. Jadeja also looked ready to bat by tying the pads. However, Hanuma Vihari and Ravichandran Ashwin batted strongly and kept Australia away from victory. Jadeja did not need to get on the field.
Jadeja, who is no longer part of the team on this tour, also underwent a thumb operation. He also posted a picture for fans on social media after the surgery. Along with this, he also promised a bang.
Jadeja tweeted, ‘Away from action for some time. Surgery is complete. But there will be a bang soon. ‘
Jadeja took four wickets in Australia’s first innings in the Sydney Test. It featured Marnus Labuschen, Matthew Wade, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon. Also, he was run out by Smith with a straight throw. He performed well with the bat. He played a useful 37-ball 28 to help reduce Australia’s lead to less than 100. With the help of his innings, India scored 244 in the first innings. Mitchell Starc had a bouncer on his thumb during his innings.
