Ravindra Jadeja and Rishabh Pant were injured while batting in the third Test against Australia in Sydney.
Another bad news for Team India on the tour of Australia, the team’s all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the entire tour. On the third day of the Sydney Test, Ravindra Jadeja injured his left thumb, after which he suffered a fracture. Ravindra Jadeja will no longer be able to bat in the second innings of the Sydney Test and will not play in the Brisbane Test. On the other hand, Rishabh Pant was also injured in the elbow, but it is known that he will be able to bat in the second innings.
It should be noted that Ravindra Jadeja was injured on the ball by Mitchell Starc while batting. Starc’s short ball hit Ravindra Jadeja’s thumb and he had trouble bowling in the second innings. After that, Ravinder Jadeja was taken to the hospital, from where the news came that Kahan’s bone was broken and he will not be able to play not only in the Sydney Test but also in the Brisbane Test. On the other hand, Rishabh Pant also got an injury on his elbow, but he is not so serious and in the second innings he can be seen batting.
The absence of Ravinder Jadeja is a big shock
The absence of Ravindra Jadeja from the tour of Australia is a major setback for Team India. In fact, Ravinder Jadeja was in form with both the ball and the bat. In the Melbourne Test, Ravinder Jadeja scored a magnificent half-century and in the first innings of the Sydney Test, Ravinder Jadeja took four wickets. Apart from this, Ravinder Jadeja also gives a lot of support from his fielding. Ravinder Jadeja had run out Steve Smith in the first innings.
Chattiswar Pujara also said after the third day of the Sydney Test that Team India is going to miss Ravindra Jadeja. “Honestly, Ravinder Jadeja’s injury has had an effect,” he said. We have only four bowlers. This puts extra pressure on the bowlers. Lack of a bowler will not make things easier, especially if he is like Ravindra Jadeja, who took four wickets in the first innings and kept up the pressure from one end.
