Senior all-rounder Rabindra Jadeya was taken to a hospital in Leeds on Saturday for a preventative scan to determine the extent of his knee injury in his third match against England. Jadeya, who played all three test matches, seems to have hurt his knee during the fielding during England’s inning on the second day of the match where India lost innings and 76 runs. Jadeja posted a photo of herself in hospital apparel on her Instagram page with the caption “It’s not a good place to be here.”
For now, Indian team management may not be “so serious”, so it doesn’t seem to worry too much.
The Indian team is set to leave for London on August 30th, and Jadeja will accompany the team if the scan report does not reveal any major issues.
The fourth test, which begins in Oval on September 2, is a track known to be useful for slow bowlers, and senior off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin could replace Jadeya.
Ashwin played a county game for Sally before the test series and took 6 wickets in the innings.
