India National Cricket Team head coach Rahul Dravid talked about the news of the star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja getting ruled out of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 and said that the team management doesn’t want to “jump to any conclusions and rule him out or rule him in”.
On Saturday, September 3, news agency PTI reported that Jadeja’s knee injury, which has ruled him out of the Asia Cup 2022, is all set to rule him out of the forthcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, which is set to be held in Australia in October-November.
PTI quoted a source in the BCCI as saying that the star all-rounder’s injury is “pretty serious” and he will have to undergo a major knee surgery, which will keep him “out of action for indefinite period of time”.
At a pre-match press conference ahead of the India-Pakistan Asia Cup 2022 Super 4 stage clash, Dravid spoke about Jadeja’s current situation.
“Jadeja, he has injured his knee. Obviously he is ruled out for the Asia Cup. He’s under the care of the medical team, he has gone to see the doctors, he has gone to see the experts,” Dravid said.
“The World Cup is a fair way away, so we don’t want to jump to any conclusions and rule him out or rule him in. We’ll see how it goes,” he added.
