Kedar Jadhav surprised over not getting selected for last 3 ODIs vs Windies
New Delhi: Kedar Jadhav was not selected as part of team India for the last three ODIs against West Indies.
Expressing surprise over his omission, he said, “I need to see why they didn’t pick me. I have cleared all tests and that’s why I played the match today. I am match fit. Unless you clear all the tests, you shouldn’t be picked for any matches and since I was fit the selectors asked me to play the Deodhar game. If I am not in the Indian team, I’ll focus on playing Ranji Trophy.”
Jadhav had missed the almost the entire IPL 2018 after suffering an injury in the tournament opener. He suffered a similar injury while batting in the Asia Cup. He had cleared all his fitness tests at the NCA in Bengaluru before he was flown to Delhi for the Deodhar Trophy game.
While Prasad remained noncommittal about when Jadhav could make a comeback, he added that Jadhav remained an integral part of the plans for the World Cup. “He will come back to the team. There is no doubt about his ability. I will have a word with him and convey how we plan to manage him,” he said.
