Huge blow for India as Ravindra Jadeja misses out on ICC T20 World Cup due to injury
Star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is missing out on ICC T20 World Cup 2022 due to an injury.
Earlier before India’s Super Four clash with Pakistan on September 4, Indian head coach Rahul Dravid had announced that Jadeja sustained an injury in his knee and as a result, was ruled out of the ongoing Asia Cup 2022. Axar Patel, another bowling all-rounder was announced as his replacement.
His absence from the squad will be a big blow to Team India during their World Cup campaign in Australia. Jadeja’s rocket-like direct throws, left-arm spin and left-handed batting will be something that the squad will miss out.
