After India suffered a heavy defeat at the hands of England in third Test at Headingley, the 5-match series has been equalized 1-1. However, the visitors have been handed a major blow after the conclusion of the match on Saturday. India's all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been taken to Leeds hospital for precautionary scans to ascertain the extent of knee injury which he notably suffered while fielding during England's second innings.
Jadeja posted a story on his Instagram account where he shared a picture of himself in hospital apparels. "Not a good place to be at," he captioned the post. As soon as the image was posted, fans started to express their concerns on social media, regarding the fitness of Jadeja.
Jadeja suffered a leg injury while fielding
Ravindra Jadeja had hurt his knee while fielding at Headingley and had walked back to the dressing room soon after the incident. However, the all-rounder was seen bowling on Day 3 which dismissed all the concerns around his fitness. He also looked fit during his fiery 30-run knock on Saturday.
However, after the conclusion of the match, he was taken to the hospital for what is being termed as 'precautionary scans' and nothing to worry about. The injury is not being realized to be too serious. However, the exact details would be understood only after the scan reports are out.
Not much time to rest before the next Test
The only thing that Team India would be worried about is the fact that there is not much time to recover from any kind of injury for Jadeja with the 4th Test scheduled to begin on September 2 at Kennington Oval in London. Considering the fact that the 32-year-old has been one of India's only consistent batsman in the lower middle-order, fans would be hoping that the reports of scans are positive for the player and he is deemed fit and available for the next match.
