New Delhi:Indian middle-order batsman Kedar Jadhav has been declared fit and is set to travel with the squad to England for the upcoming 2019 World Cup.
Team India will board the flight for England on May 22 and there were some doubts on Kedar's inclusion in the World Cup squad after his shoulder injury. But, now Kedar will travel with his teammates, giving an end to all the speculations about his injury.
Earlier this month, Kedar Jadhav had injured his shoulder during an IPL match between CSK and KXIP and was forced to miss the playoffs. After the injury, Jadhav spent his time recovering with Team India physio Patrick Farhart and was declared fit in the report submitted by physio to the BCCI on Thursday.
