Virat Kohli is hoping that Ravindra Jadeja's absence from the tour of South Africa will not impact India's performance.

VVS Laxman has raised questions over multiple injuries in Team India’s camp ahead of the second Test match against New Zealand. The former cricketer stated that skipper Virat Kohli said nothing about the injuries yesterday and wondered if something had happened before the toss.

Ajinkya Rahane, all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and fast bowler Ishant Sharma were ruled out of the ongoing match. Captain Virat Kohli announced himself, Mohammad Siraj and Jayant Yadav as replacements for the three players.

“Did something happen this morning? But Virat Kohli said nothing about it in the press conference yesterday. It is a big blow. Jadeja was injured in that England series, and Axar Patel came in, and he was named Player of the Series.”

According to the BCCI’s press release, Ajinkya Rahane picked up a minor hamstring strain on the last day of the Kanpur Test, while Ishant Sharma dislocated his left little finger. Ravindra Jadeja suffered a right forearm injury during the first Test.
