Kedar Jadhav declared fit for ICC World Cup

All-rounder Kedar Jadhav, who had hurt his left shoulder during the recently-concluded IPL, has been declared fully fit for the World Cup.

The 34-year-old’s participation in the World Cup was doubtful after he had sustained the injury while fielding during an IPL match between Chennai Super Kings and Kings XI Punjab on May 5.

He had immediately left the field and it was reported that he would be out of action for at least two weeks.

“Kedar’s injury was not a serious one and he has fully recovered now. All 15 players who were picked in the squad are travelling to UK,” a team source said.

Team India physio Patrick Farhart submitted Jadhav’s fitness report, which cleared him.

The fitness test was conducted on Thursday in Mumbai.

As per the ICC rules, changes in the 15-member preliminary squad are permitted till May 23.
