“Fanboy replacing his idol” – Twitter reacts as Ravindra Jadeja ruled out of the Bangladesh ODI series, Shahbaz Ahmed set to replace him

India’s productive all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been one of the incredible assets to the team because he delivers the goods through his batting, bowling and fielding respectively. 

Unfortunately, Team India badly missed his services during the 8th edition of the ICC Men’s Twenty20 World Cup 2022 due to a knee injury. The all-rounder sustained an injury to his right knee during the Asia Cup 2022.

He played the first two games of the Asia Cup 2022 tournament in the United Arab Emirates before getting ruled out of the competition due to an untimely injury. He also had to miss the entire T20 World Cup for obvious reasons.

Meanwhile, in the latest development, it has been confirmed that Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the three-match ODI series against Bangladesh cricket team. 

Team India are currently in New Zealand for a white-ball assignment. The Men in Blue won the three-match T20I series by 1-0 and are gearing up for the three-match ODI series. 

After the conclusion of the ODI assignment, Indian players will fly all the way to Bangladesh to play three ODIs and two Tests. Jadeja was earlier expected to make a comeback for the ODI series. 

As per ESPN Cricinfo, he has been ruled out of the ODI series and Shahbaz Ahmed replaced the all-rounder. For the unversed, Shahbaz Ahmed once said that he aspires to be an all-rounder like Jadeja. It’s a dream-come-true moment for him as he will play Jadeja’s role for the ODI series.
