Jadeja tweeted, “Out of action for a while, surgery completed. But will soon return with a bang.”
On Monday, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had confirmed that Jadeja would not be taking part in the fourth Test against Australia, set to be played at the Gabba, beginning January 15.
Jadeja had suffered a blow to his left thumb while batting on day 3 of the third Border-Gavaskar Test that concluded on Monday. He later went for scans and the results showed that he had dislocated his thumb.

The BCCI had confirmed that the all-rounder will returns to India only after consulting a hand specialist in Sydney. He will then head to the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru for further management of his injury.
As per the earlier reports Jadeja suffered a dislocation and fracture and has been ruled out for about six weeks with the management set to check on the need for surgery with a specialist.
