“Jadeja’s right knee injury is pretty serious. He is supposed to undergo a major knee surgery and will be out of action for an indefinite period of time. At this point, if one goes by the assessment of the NCA’s medical team, one can’t put a timeline on his imminent international comeback,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on the condition of anonymity.

The other area of concern for the selector is in his replacement. Axar Patel too has had frequent injury problems while the other option in Washington Sundar has been a regular visitor at the NCA. As India have to announce the squad by September 15, the limited time puts selectors in dilemma. However, the BCCI is not ready to rule him out of T20 World Cup yet.

A member of the selection committee told InsideSport that Axar Patel will be looked at as a like-to-like replacement in his absence.

“Axar is ready to take the lead role in Jaddu’s absence. But of course, being the player he is, it will be a big miss for us. The good thing is that we have good bench strength and everyone is ready to fill in and deliver whenever required,” the member added.
