Jadeja In Town
Toronto, Ontario (September 18, 1998) Ajay Jadeja who captained the India
in the Commonwealth Games in Malaysia arrived in Toronto at 10 a.m. today,
event organizers International Manngement Group (IMG) comfirmed.
Jadeja was flown out as a replacement for Jatin Paranjpe who was injured in
the third Sahara Cup match. Paranjpe was ruled out of the series by Dr.
David Greenberg, the event doctor. The Pakistani Cricket Board acceded to
BCCI's request for a replacement.
An IMG spokesperson in Toronto dismissed as ``speculation'' that Sachin
Tendulkar had boarded a 2 a.m. flight from India and was due to play the
final game in the series on Sunday.
BCCI had made efforts to contact Sachin Tendulkar once the medical
assessment of Paranjpe's injury was communicated to the boards. The former
Indian captain had left Bombay for Lonavla before carrying on to Pune
before he was reached, reports said. Jadeja was then flown out so he could
be match ready for Saturday's game.
India are down 1-2 in the five-match series. Rain is forecast for Saturday
