In a fresh update, it is learnt that the all-rounder of the Indian National Cricket Team Kedar Jadhav will be missing the first game against South Africa on June 5th. It means that he will not be available for practice games as well. The youngster would be in the available section of the pool for the second game against Australian, which is on June 9th.

Kedar Jadhav hurt his shoulder when he attempted a diving stop near the boundary fence against . He was immediately taken out of the game and was sent to the doctors for scanning. The reports which emerged out saw him being ruled out from the IPL 2019 playoffs.


As per the reports, it is learnt that Jadhav has undergone a grade one trauma injury. Further, it comes to be known that the cricketer will regain his fitness ahead of the showpiece event. Surprisingly, BCCI is yet to release a statement on his availability for the grand event.

Physio Will Have The Final Say On Kedar Jadhav:

Recently, the head coach Ravi Shastri stated that the all-rounder will be fine for the grand event with time in his kitty. Shastri was optimistic of Kedar’s chances, as he is lucky to not fracture his shoulder. He wants to wait before taking a call on the fitness of the unorthodox all-rounder


Meanwhile, the latest reports that surfaced on the media reveal that the all-rounder Kedar Jadhav will not be part of the team for the practice games, which are scheduled to be played ahead of the crucial tournament. Further, it is learnt that he will miss the first game against South Africa as well.

The team physio Pattrick Farhat will give his final report to the selectors and the management before heading to England. If Farhat believes that Jadhav can recover before the second league game, Kedar Jadhav would travel England. If the reports look bleak, it would be unfortunate for the all-rounder to miss out his first-ever World Cup.

Hopefully, Kedar Jadhav would get fit for the major event. India would be benefitted from him, as he got many ingredients to make things fall in place for the team. His unorthodox bowling and ability to get runs under his belt for the team would be a major factor during the crunch situations of the game in the tournament.
