The all-rounder was able to recover well under the full treatment from Patrick Farhart. They both consulted with many specialist and doctor and then finally the physio submitted a full fitness report to The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The pair had registered with a five-star inn in Mumbai a week ago. They did some training sessions there. After a couple of training sessions, Jadhav breezed through a fitness test directed by Farhart at the MCA’s BKC office on Thursday morning.

BCCI are full satisfied with the recovery of Jadhav at the moment and that’s why they are ready to travel England and Wales with Jadhav. He will surely miss the two warm-up games against New Zealand and Bangladesh. But he’s in full contention to play against South Africa in their opening match.

The 34-year old Chennai Super Kings all-rounder injured his shoulder during the match against Kings XI Punjab in this year’s Indian Premier League (IPL). He harmed his left shoulder when endeavoring to spare an overthrow from Ravindra Jadeja during the match.

India will fly to England this week on May 22 to start their World Cup campaign. They will face South Africa on June 5 to start their World Cup at Hampshire Bowl, Southampton.
