If sources are to be believed, Ravindra Jadeja may miss out on the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 because of his shoulder injury. It has been learnt that the all-rounder, who has been a crucial cog in the wheel in captain MS Dhoni's ODI scheme of things, is likely to be out of action for six to seven weeks due to the injury he picked up while training during the early part of the tour Down Under.
This means Axar Patel has a great chance of making it to the World Cup squad other than the fact that he may feature in his first Test match, the fourth and final Test against Australia in Sydney starting January 6. The same day, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) will also declare the Indian team for the tri-series in Australia, also involving England, and the World Cup. The lanky left-arm spinner from Nadiad, who can bat a fair bit, is almost certain to make the grade after Jadeja's fitness issues.
