Ravindra Jadeja, arguably one of India’s greatest all-rounders has been injured for a couple of months now. In those months, India has failed at two major titles in Asia Cup 2022 as well as the 20-20 World Cup.
A big reason for India’s poor performance at these two events could be accredited to Jadeja’s unavailability due to injury. The southpaw is currently going through rehabilitation in order to get back into the side. The process however would still require a significant amount of time, resulting in Jadeja reportedly missing the upcoming Test series against Bangladesh as well.
Let’s look at four potential players who could replace the all-rounder in the team but are unlikely to be selected.
The Haryana cricketer Shahbaz Ahmed took 20 wickets and made 482 runs in the last Ranji Trophy season, proving yet again that he could be a fine replacement for Jadeja. Reports however suggest that he is nowhere in line for a potential call-up to the team.
