Ravindra Jadeja, a senior all-rounder for India, will likely miss the T20 World Cup in Australia due to serious knee surgery that would likely sideline him for an extended length of time. 

With his all-around skills, Jadeja, who participated in the team’s first two Asia Cup games against Pakistan and Hong Kong, provides the team with the necessary balance. Rohit Sharma’s team would suffer greatly from the 33-year-old veteran’s absence.

“Jadeja’s right knee injury is pretty serious. He is supposed to undergo 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 was quoted as saying by PTI.

Jadeja has had a knee problem for a long time

It is known that Jadeja has had a knee problem for a long time, and a close examination of the past year would indicate that he is transitioning more toward becoming a batting all-rounder across formats, with his left-arm spin becoming a secondary ability rather than the major one.

It is thought that the impact of landing with his front foot while bowling on his right knee has affected him.

Career of Jadeja 

Jadeja has bowled over 7000 overs in close to 630 games across formats during his senior career (domestic and international), which also includes domestic first-class, List A, and IPL matches. This includes 897 wickets. It becomes worse when you factor in the number of overs bowled in the nets and the 13,000 runs scored at the senior level (local and international).
