Dubai (UAE), September 3: India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is set to miss the T20 World Cup in Australia. He will reportedly undergo knee surgery, which is expected to keep him out of action for an indefinite period of time.
"Ravindra Jadeja could be ruled out of the upcoming major event T20 World Cup too as his knee injury needs surgery and he has to stay away from cricket for a long time," sources said.
The T20 World Cup will begin on October 16 in Australia.
Jadeja has bowled over 7000 overs in roughly 630 matches in first-class, List A, and T20 categories, and has 897 wickets to his name.
Earlier on Friday, India's great spinner Axar Patel was picked as Jadeja's replacement for the upcoming Asia Cup 2022.
Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the event due to a right knee injury. He is currently being monitored by the BCCI medical team.
Jadeja was instrumental in India's first-round Asia Cup victory over Pakistan. The all-rounder scored 35 runs to lead the team to victory, with Hardik Pandya anchoring the innings on the other end.
Suryakumar Yadav's brilliant 68* and Virat Kohli's 59* in the second match helped India secure a position in the Super Four stage of the Asia Cup 2022 after the side defeated Hong Kong by 40 runs at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
