India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja and his wife Reeva Solanki survived a road accident on Friday in Jamnagar, according to TV reports. Jadeja’s car had apparently hit a two-wheeler driven by a girl named Preeti Sharma who is studying at Jamnagar’s Vidyasagar Institute.

Sharma sustained minor injuries but it wasn’t clear if the accident was due to the cricketer’s fault. It’s reported that Jadeja took the girl to a nearby hospital for treatment.

Jadeja, along with off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, was rested from the ongoing India-England T20I series.

While Ashwin and Jadeja have been the mainstays of India’s spin attack, the Virat Kohli-led side seems to see all their options before the Champions Trophy in June in England.

Ashwin had a forgettable ODI series against England, picking three wickets in three matches while giving away 60 or more runs in all the matches. Jadeja, on the other hand, picked four wickets in three games but at 5.23 was the most economical bowler of the series.
