Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is likely to miss out from the upcoming 2015 World Cup following his shoulder injury. It is also believed that discarded southpaw Yuvraj Singh is likely to replace Jadeja in the Indian squad for the coveted tournament.

Jadeja, who sustained a shoulder injury ahead of the India-Australia Test series, has been nursing his injury at the new BCCI centre in Chennai under the observation of the cricket body's physiotherapist. However, the reports suggest that the 26-year-old is yet to achieve full fitness in order to return to competitive cricket.

The BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel had last month revealed that the left-hander would be out of action for three to four weeks following his shoulder injury. Jadeja was also ruled out of the upcoming Tri-series in Australia, slated to begin from January 16.

With the January 7 deadline for announcing the World Cup squad around the corner, Jadeja will have to fight against time if he intends to participate in the tournament. According to the ESPNcricinfo reports, Jadeja should be match-fit by around January 20 if his rehabilitation goes according to plan.

Even if Jadeja fails to recover in time for the World Cup, the BCCI can get him replaced on medical grounds. This in turn has allowed a slim hope for discarded senior batsman Yuvraj Singh who has recently found his long-lost form.

Yuvraj's recent centuries in the domestic cricket has made him a possible candidate to replace Jadeja in Team India's World Cup squad. The Chandigarh batsman lit up the ongoing season of the Ranji Trophy with three back-to-back centuries.
