Ind vs Aus 2nd – The Indian cricket team is facing uncertainty over the availability of all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja for the upcoming second Test in Visakhapatnam.

Ind vs Aus 2nd – Could Ravindra Jadeja Be Sidelined?

The incident occurred when Jadeja was run out by Ben Stokes, visibly in discomfort and pain as he walked off the field. The injury, suspected to be a hamstring issue, has prompted the team management to await the results of a scan conducted in Hyderabad. These reports have been sent to Mumbai for a professional medical opinion, with an assessment expected on Monday.

Initial indications suggest that it might be a hamstring pull rather than a tear, which could potentially rule Jadeja out of the second Test but leave him available for the third. However, nothing conclusive has been determined yet, and the final decision will hinge on the severity of the injury.

Coach Rahul Dravid, speaking after the match, remained non-committal about Jadeja’s fitness, citing a lack of information from the team’s physiotherapist. “I honestly haven’t had a chance to speak to the physio as yet. Once I get back, I’ll speak to him and see what it is about,” Dravid stated when questioned about Jadeja’s condition.

Should Ravindra Jadeja be deemed unfit to play, Kuldeep Yadav stands as a potential replacement. However, the absence of Jadeja would be keenly felt by the team, particularly for his batting prowess and exceptional fielding skills. In the first Test, Jadeja emerged as India’s highest scorer in the first innings with 87 runs and made significant contributions with the ball.
