Kedar Jadhav fit, no changes in India’s World Cup Squad

India will start their campaign against South Africa on June 5.

The speculation over the final squad of Team India for World Cup is over. On Monday Indian team’s physio Patrick Farhart declared Kedar Jadhav fit in his report to BCCI.

The all-rounder had suffered a shoulder injury during Chennai’s match against Punjab in IPL on May 5. Jadhav passed a fitness test conducted by Farhart at the MCA’s BKC facility.

Had Jadhav declared unfit, the selection panel would have picked a replacement from the five standbys: Rishabh Pant, Ambati Rayudu, Ishant Sharma, Axar Patel and Navdeep Saini.

Many former cricketers and experts believed that Pant should have been selected for the World Cup.

“If you can put Rishabh up at No. 4, he’ll score runs for you because he’s just so talented,” Ganguly said. “He’s got so much time to play fast bowling that you can’t see Rishabh Pant failing at the top level. And he hasn’t actually. In his short career, he’s been remarkable for India, and once gets more opportunities, he’ll be a very different player.”

India will start their campaign against South Africa on June 5.

June 5 (Wednesday): v South Africa at The Rose Bowl, Southampton
