Lucknow pacer Jaydev Unadkat reportedly ruled out of IPL 2023 with shoulder injury

Lucknow Super Giants’ (LSG) pacer Jaydev Unadkat has been ruled out of the remaining season of the ongoing IPL 2023 due to a left-shoulder injury, reported ESPNCricinfo.

The report said that LSG released the pacer after consulting the BCCI medical team.

Notably, the pacer sustained the injury during a training session at the nets on Sunday in Lucknow when he stuck his left foot in the rope that keeps the net up which resulted in a fall on his elbow.

Unadkat, however, is likely to be fit before India’s World Test Championship (WTC) final against Australia, starting on June 7 at The Oval in London.

According to the report, the 31-year-old pacer will have a scan in Mumbai before he leaves for the NCA in Bengaluru for rehab to get fit for the WTC final.

Unadkat featured in three games for LSG this IPL season and remained wicketless.

Earlier, LSG skipper KL Rahul had injured his right leg while fielding during their IPL game against Royal Challenge Bangalore (RCB) on Monday.
