Ravindra Jadeja ruled out of Border-Gavaskar Test series
Ravindra Jadeja suffered a blow to his left thumb while batting on Day 3 of the third Border-Gavaskar Test that concluded on Monday. He later went for scans and the results have shown that he has dislocated his thumb.
Multiple injuries continue to cloud India’s XI for the winner-takes-all fourth Vodafone Test in Brisbane, where the cagey tourists are yet to reveal whether spearhead Jasprit Bumrah will be an enforced omission.
Bumrah suffered an abdominal strain during the third Test.
The superstar was widely reported to be ruled out of the fourth Test, which comes after a three-day turnaround that would test the mettle of even a fully fit paceman.
