Indian all-rounder Kedar Jadhav who has been out of competitive cricket for more than a couple of months said he would start playing in another two to three weeks at the most.
Jadhav had been ruled out of the IPL due to hamstring injury in the first match of the league. He underwent a surgery in Melbourne recently and has been recovering quickly.
“Rehab (rehabilitation) is good. Another maximum two-three weeks and I will be fit and start playing. I am allowed to bat now also, but because of rain, I am not able to. In two weeks I will start playing,” Jadhav recently said.
“I am recovering faster than expectation, so I am happy. it was a recurrent injury. Almost the third time, the same muscle was injured. I got injured first in December against Sri Lanka in Dharamshala, then in South Africa in the third ODI and then again in IPL.
“So when it (the injury) happens again and again, you have to find a confirm solution. The physios and doctors in India then decided that surgery will give me better option to play for longer duration.”
Jadhav also expressed his disappointment on missing the England tour, “I will say it was a difficult three month period, but I feel I understood the importance of fitness. Injuries are a part of the game and we can’t do anything. Overall I gained knowledge about my body.”
“Not only this period, but since the time I have joined the team, his [Kohli’s] support is there. I remember when I first got selected in the India team, he [Kohli] had gifted me a Blackberry phone. So Virat is always encouraging youngsters as a leader and off the field he is a loving and caring person,” Jadhav signed off.
