All-rounder, Ravindra Jadeja has hit the nets for the first time after he underwent thumb surgery two months ago. While batting in the Sydney Test against Australia the left-hander sustained a thumb fracture as he copped a blow from a short ball from Mitchell Starc.
Consequently, the 32-year-old was ruled out of the Brisbane Test, then from the entire home Test series against England. He is also not included in the T20I series versus England and is unlikely to feature in the ODIs as well.
However, on Thursday, Ravindra Jadeja took to Twitter to enlighten his fans about his recovery with a video. Thankfully, to the pleasing of the fans, the southpaw is back in the nets after a lay-off of two months.
He was seen batting lightly and bowling as well, indicating that his finger is close to complete recovery.
“Feeling good.holding bat n ball after two months #gettingready#focusonyourself” Jadeja captioned.

Ravindra Jadeja will be soon seen in the IPL 2021
The Saurashtra all-rounder will be seen in the yellow colours for the Chennai Super Kings in the upcoming 14th editions of the Indian Premier League. While the CSK had an underwhelming season last year, Jadeja shined with the bat, which was a massive positive for MS Dhoni’s side and the national team as well.
He scored 232 runs at a strike rate of terrific 171.85 and remained not out in 6 of the 11 innings he batted. Confidence in Jadeja’s finishing will liberate the likes of MS Dhoni, who had a glum IPL 2020, to bat in a more attacking style even before the death overs – something his side dearly missed last year.
Speaking of IPL 2020, the 3-time champions will begin their campaign, in the hunt for a fourth title in what could well be Dhoni’s last hurray, against last season’s runner-up, Delhi Capitals on April 9th at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai – no team will play any game at its home ground, all matches will be played in neutral venues.
