Ex-BCCI selector on Ravindra Jadeja’s difficulties in returning from injury, saying, “With Age…”

Saba Krim, a former selector for the BCCI, believes that the 33-year-old Jadeja needs to take his time while making a comeback this time.

Ravindra Jadeja shared a photo on social media on Tuesday, the day after he had knee surgery. The image was accompanied by a caption, in which he stated that he would strive to return to competitive cricket as soon as he was able to do so. Jadeja underwent the procedure on Monday.

“There were no complications throughout the procedure. There are many people, including the BCCI, my teammates, support staff, physios, doctors, and fans, that I would like to thank for their involvement and support. Soon, I will get started on my rehabilitation, and I will play cricket again as soon as I am able to. I appreciate all of your sweet words, Jadeja stated on Instagram.

Saba Karim, a former selector for the BCCI, is of the opinion that this time around, 33-year-old Jadeja needs to take his time in making a comeback.

“It’s a terrible phase for him because whenever he comes back, he has always done well, and for him to get hurt at such a vital moment in his career is not so easy,” I said. “It’s a tough phase for him because whenever he comes back, he has always done well.” But one must give credit to Jadeja for the fact that anytime he has come back from injury, even if he doesn’t have too much game experience, but instantly he gets into his rhythm, which is not an easy thing to do. This is something that must be commended.

But because he is inherently such a brilliant player, it is so simple for him to make up for lost time. My memory serves me correctly that quite some time ago, he was not even trained in the same manner as the other cricket players were trained. However, because he was born with a natural ability to be so talented, so gifted, and so fit, it won’t be hard for him to get back into the game,” Saba Karim said on Sports18.

However, I believe that as he gets older, it will become increasingly difficult for him to accomplish that. Therefore, in my opinion, he should first return home to continue his rehabilitation and then then consider making a return. However, I believe that the most essential factor is the mental approach that you take as well as the type of preparation that you perform in the time leading up to your return to play after an injury.

Prior to the Super 4 match against Pakistan, India coach Rahul Dravid told the media that Jadeja had been eliminated from the competition, but he added that it would be premature to rule him out of the ICC T20 World Cup later this year.

Dravid revealed the news that Jadeja will not be playing in the Asia Cup before India’s Super 4 match against Pakistan. “Jadeja has damaged his knee; he is definitely ruled out for the Asia Cup,” Dravid stated. “He is currently in the hands of the medical team, and he is scheduled to meet with the physicians as well as the specialists.

We don’t want to jump to any conclusions about him just yet, as the World Cup is still quite a ways off, and we don’t want to rule him out or rule him in either. We’ll wait and see.
