Ravi Shastri slammed on Twitter for citing ‘injury’ for Jadeja’s exclusion: Ind vs Aus

The Indian coach Ravi Shastri’s justification during the press conference on Ravindra Jadeja’s exclusion from the Indian team for the Perth Test against Australia is not going well with the Twitterati.

During the press conference when Shastri was asked about Jadeja’s exclusion, he stated, “Jadeja had taken an injection four days after coming to Australia because of some stiffness in his shoulder. It took a while for that injection to settle down. At Perth, we felt he was about 70 to 80 per cent fit, and we didn’t want to risk him. If he is 80% fit here, he’ll play.”

In the first Test match in Adelaide, India won the match by 31 runs but lost in the second test in Perth by 146 runs. The four-match series is currently tied at 1-1 with the third Test set to begin on Wednesday at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
