Indian Team Management wont consider Injured Player for WC 2015

The Indian team management is not going to risk the injury of the vital players of the side ahead of the World Cup.

Those who are not fully fit would be kept out of the tri-series games in order to make sure that their bodies are in right shape come the World Cup.

India’s main concern at this point in time is the spinning all rounder Ravindra Jadeja who is nursing a shoulder problem.

The selectors were pretty keen to pick him in the squad and that was fair enough given the way Jadeja had played for India over the last few seasons.

The 26-year old was named the best bowler of the Champions Trophy 2013 which India had won.

He has come a long way as a batsman too and last year, he showed that he was getting matured as a finisher.

The Saurashtra man is one of the favourites of the Indian captain. So, he had to be picked, but, the fitness of a player is very important especially if the tournament is as long as World Cup. You don’t want to have a 50-60% fit player for such tournaments.

Jadeja must have to get 100% fit ahead of India’s opening game in the show piece tournament.

India is lucky to have a like-for-like replacement for Jadeja in the current squad.

Akshar Patel, who is also from the same state as Jadeja, bowls left arm spin and is a handy bat at 7. So, he would probably be playing in the first few games in the tri-series.

Ishant Sharma is another worry for India. He is believed to be carrying a bit of soreness in his knees. That’s why he was not included in the playing XI for the last game of the Border-Gavaskar series.
