Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar has joked about breaking the finger of left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja. Gavaskar said that Jadeja must now regret why his finger was broken before the England series. He has been on the bed rest for a month and a half and will be desperate to get into the field seeing the spinners take wickets.
Injured on January 10, has been on rest for a month and a half
Gavaskar jokingly said that Jadeja must be wondering why his finger is taking so long to recover. They must be asking this question to the doctor. Jadeja suffered a finger injury during the third Test in Sydney on 10 January last month in Australia. After this, he also underwent finger surgery. Jadeja has also not been included in the squad for the T20 series starting on March 12 against England.
Akshar took 18 wickets in 2 Tests against England
Actually, left-arm spinner Akshar Patel was included in the team due to the absence of Jadeja. He has taken 18 wickets in 2 Tests against England. He is the second highest wicket-taker in the tournament after Ravichandran Ashwin (24 wickets).
On this, Gavaskar tightened up that Jadeja would be desperate to bowl on these wickets. Akshar took 7 wickets against England in the second Test played in Chennai. At the same time, he took 11 wickets in the third Test played at the Narendra Modi Stadium, the world’s largest cricket ground.
