Indian middle-order batsman Kedar Jadhav is all set to undergo a surgery on his hamstring. The cricketer will fly to Australia for the surgery. He sustained a Grade 2 hamstring injury during the opener game of Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018 against defending champion Mumbai Indians (MI).
He had suffered the injury early on during his batting stint in the 2nd innings and had walked off the field, but walked in at the fall of the 9th wicket to help take his team home in what was probably the most dramatic game of IPL 2018.
Kedar has been very prone to injury ever since he made it to the national team. He was also injured during the home series against Sri Lanka.
He got fit for South Africa series but after returning from the tour, he didn’t feature for Maharashtra in Vijay Hazare Trophy.
He has been an important part of the middle order and he also plays the role of a finisher. Keeping World Cup 2019 in view, his fitness will be a major factor for the team.
According to the reports of Ahmedabad Mirror, the cricketer will fly to Australia within 2-3 days and Team India physio Patrick Farhart will also accompany him in the country. As per the rules, The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will pay for Jadhav’s injury. He will also get compensation for missing out the IPL season due to injury.
While a lot of people thought that Jadhav wasn’t selected in the Indian team for England because maybe he was not in the scheme of things for the 2019 World Cup, but it turns out that
However, Kedar Jadhav is not the man which the CSK franchise lost in this IPL. A few weeks ago, pacer Deepak Chahar also ruled out of IPL due to the hamstring injury. No doubt that the side will miss both the cricketers in the tournament. But with the kind of bench strength they have, they will most likely fill up the team strong.
