Xtra Time Web Desk: In what comes as a huge blow for the Indian team, all rounder Ravindra Jadeja looks doubtful for ODI series against West Indies. According to information received from the Caribbean, Jadeja has a niggle on his knee and he has been advised by the BCCI medical team to take rest. They do not want him to take the risk and play, keeping in mind the busy schedule ahead along with the T20 World Cup 2022.

According to a report, there is a chance that Jadeja could be rested for the entire ODI series, as a precautionary measure so that he does not aggravate his injury, supposedly on his left knee.

The star allrounder could be fit for the five-match T20I series that follow the three ODIs. All the matches in ODI series will be played at the Queen’s Park Oval in Port of Spain, Trinidad on July 22, 24 and 27 respectively.

The development has got the national selectors and the team management into thinking whether they have to name a deputy. There is a chance that there may not be an announcement and the decision on the vice-captaincy could be left to coach Rahul Dravid to decide on the spot.
