Indian all-rounder Kedar Jadhav has once again hit by an injury, as he sustained a hamstring strain while batting against Bangladesh in the final of the Asia Cup 2018 on Friday (September 28).

Injuries continue to haunt Jadhav, as the all-rounder picked up the latest injury while trying to steal a quick single after hitting the ball to mid-off in the 2018 Asia Cup final against Bangladesh.

Jadhav, who returned to the Indian squad after being out of action for almost three months nursing a hamstring injury, was looked into by the team physio Patrick Farhart in Dubai, but he decided to continue batting before he went off soon after.

His contribution in the team’s seventh Asia Cup title triumph was crucial as India needed his services while chasing a 223-run target, therefore a limping Jadhav returned to the crease and ran the most defining single of his unbeaten 23 off 27 balls innings against Bangladesh.

Meanwhile, the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI) has confirmed after the match in Dubai, “Kedar suffered a right hamstring strain which is the other leg from his previous problem. Scans will be done and update on the same will be given in a few days.”

Noteworthy, Jadhav who is a regular member of India's One Day International squad had earlier suffered a grade 2 hamstring tear in the IPL 2018 due to which he was ruled out for the entire season and India's subsequent tour of Ireland and England.
