Jadhav makes steady recovery under Team India physio
Even though it was stated that his injury might not be severe, there were apprehensions regarding his World Cup participation.
Jadhav passed the fitness test at MCA's BKC facility in Mumbai on Thursday.
Jadhav has not played much in England
Interestingly, he has been enjoying a decent form in ODIs.
In the last 10 matches, he has scored 229 runs at an average of 38.16.
However, in the same period, he has claimed only five wickets at a below-par average of 50.20.
Further, he doesn't have enough experience of playing in England.
In 5 ODIs in England he has scored only 34 runs.
Jadhav's unpredictability makes him a lethal weapon
Jadhav has scored 1,174 runs in 59 ODIs at an average of 43.48.
He has 27 scalps at an economy of 5.15.
However, it is his unpredictability that could be his biggest weapon.
