Kedar Jadhav speaks about his injury period; Says Virat Kohli was very supportive

India cricketer Kedar Jadhav, who had undergone a surgery after suffering a hamstring injury during IPL, on Friday said that he will soon start playing in two to three weeks. The all-rounder picked up an injury in the inaugural Indian Premier League (IPL) match when he was playing for Chennai Super Kings against Mumbai Indians on April 7, after which Jadhav was ruled out for the entire season. 

"Rehab (rehabilitation) is good. Another maximum two-three week and I will be fit and start playing. I am allowed to bat now also, but because of rain, I am not able to. In two weeks I will start playing," Jadhav told reporters during a promotional event in Mumbai on Friday.

Jadhav said that he has suffered an injury on the same muscle for the third time. Earlier, he had been injured first at Dharamshala in a match against Sri Lanka and then in South Africa in the third ODI. Jadhav said that he wanted a permanent remedy to the injury and hence he asked the doctors and physios to treat him accordingly.

However, he was all praises for his skipper Virat Kohli, whom he claimed was really supportive.

Not only this period, but since the time I have joined the team, his (Kohli's) support is there. I remember when I first got selected in the India team, he (Kohli) had gifted me a Blackberry phone. So Virat is always encouraging youngsters as a leader and off the field, he is a loving and caring person," Jadhav said.
