India’s star allrounder is excited to make comeback in Indian team after long time.
Southpaw allrounder sustained knee injury during Asia Cup game against Hong Kong and has been out of action since then. Jadeja underwent knee surgery, followed by recovery process in NCA. Ahead of important Border-Gavaskar Trophy, Jadeja shared his excitement with BCCI.
“I am very excited and happy that after almost more than five months, I get to wear the Indian jersey again. I have been blessed that I was given the opportunity again and the journey to reach here was full of up and downs. Because if you are not playing cricket for five months, it becomes very frustrating and obviously, I was eagerly waiting to get fit as soon as possible so that I can go play for India,” Jadeja said.
“I had a problem with my knee and I had to get surgery sooner or later. But I had to take the decision whether I would have it before the World Cup or after. So, the doctor also advised me to do it before the World Cup because my chances of playing the World Cup were anyway pretty less. So I made up my mind and went for the surgery.
“The period after that (surgery) was pretty difficult because you have to continuously do rehab and training. You had thoughts in your head about your fitness When you saw the matches on TV, like I was watching the World Cup, I wished that I was there, Jadeja added.
