Ravindra Jadeja, a star all-rounder for the India National Cricket Team, gave a positive update on his knee injury on Tuesday, September 6, stating that his knee surgery was successful.
Knee problems have been a source of discomfort for the 33-year-old man for some time now. Recent knee surgery on his right leg forced him to sit out of the one-day international matches played against the West Indies National Cricket Team.
In the meantime, on Friday, September 2, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) issued an official statement in which it was asserted that Jadeja’s right knee injury has ruled him out of participating in the Asia Cup 2022, and that Axar Patel will replace him in the squad.
The loss of the all-rounder was a devastating blow to the Indian squad, as he is a key component in maintaining the right level of equilibrium for the group. Due to his absence, Team India had no choice but to make several substitutions to their starting XI for their match against Pakistan in the Super 4 stage.
After a successful operation on Tuesday, September 6, Ravindra Jadeja went to social media to express his gratitude to the BCCI, his teammates, support staff, physiotherapists, physicians, and fans.
What did Ravindra Jadeja say?
“The surgery was successful. There are many people to thank for their support and involvement – BCCI, my teammates, support staff, physios, doctors, and the fans. I will start my rehab soon and try to get back to cricket soon as I can. Thank you to everyone for your kind wishes,” Jadeja wrote on his social media.

Also, it was recently claimed that the all-knee rounder’s ailment would prevent him from participating in the next ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, which is scheduled to take place in Australia between the months of October and November 2022.
Notably, an official from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said to PTI that Jadeja’s knee injury is “very significant” and that the all-rounder would need major knee surgery, which will keep him “out of play for an undetermined amount of time.”
