Allrounder in India Ravindra Jadeja was taken to a hospital in Leeds on Saturday after precautionary measures following his team’s embarrassment against England on day 4 of the Headingley Test.
Jadeja, who has played all three Tests in the five-match series, reportedly injured his knee during England’s first innings on the second day of the match. India lose by an innings and 76 runs.
Jadeja uploads a photo of himself on his Instagram story from a hospital with a green scrub. He captioned his Instagram story: “Not a good place to be”.
Meanwhile, after the end of the Headingley Test, the captain of India was Virat Kohli said he would continue with the four pacers plus one spin bowling combination – unless the conditions forced him to bring in a second spinner for a fast bowler.
“We have to clearly assess the surface on which we are going to play. Prediction is something no one really knows in this country. It all depends on the pitch, ” Kohli said during the post-match presentation in Leeds.
“I think this template works. If you are consistent enough, the pressure of the fourth sailor, especially if you lose the shoot and you have to bowl first, is very handy, because if you have two spinners, you can only attack with three seams, and then the spinners are in play on a fresh wicket on day 1. “
Kohli & Co. will be expected to leave for London on August 30, and if the scan reports show nothing major, Jadeja will accompany the team.
The fourth Test starts on September 2 at The Oval, and there is a possibility that a veteran spin-off could play Ravichandran Ashwin to replace Jadeja on a field known for providing assistance to the slow bowlers.
Ashwin played a County game for Surrey before the start of the Test series and took six wickets in Somerset’s second innings.
