Champion Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has promised his fans that he will be back with a bang after he underwent successful surgery on his left thumb on Tuesday, a day after he was officially ruled out of the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy.
Jadeja suffered a nasty blow on his left thumb courtesy of a brutal Mitchell Starc bumper while batting during India’s first innings on the third day of the recently-concluded Sydney Test.
The southpaw did not bowl in India’s second innings but was padded up on the final day to bat with a heavily strapped thumb in case the visitors needed his services.
The scans revealed that Jadeja has dislocated his thumb and he was officially ruled out from the next Test as well as from the England series after the BCCI issued a press release.
The Saurashtra all-rounder underwent a successful injury on the same on Tuesday. He took to his Twitter account where he posted his picture from the hospital bed.
”Out of action for a while. surgery completed. But will soon return with a bang!” the all-rounder tweeted.

Ravindra Jadeja’s injury is a body-blow for Team India, which has already been grappled with numerous players breaking down due to one injury or another.
The southpaw has been in outstanding form in the ongoing tour. He claimed as many as seven wickets in just three innings, took a few brilliant catches, affected a freak run-out of Steve Smith at the SCG besides chipping in with crucial knocks in the first innings of both Melbourne and Sydney Test.
