The all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja of India has not yet confirmed whether or not he would take part in the Test series against Australia.
Jadeja, who has been sidelined due to a knee injury, was added to India’s team for the first two Tests against the Australians. However, a decision on whether or not he will be available for the first Test will be made because he has not yet fully healed from his ailment.
A video of Jadeja bowling in the nets while wearing safety tape on his right knee was released by Jadeja on Twitter. The tape was wrapped around Jadeja’s right knee.
In the previous year’s Asia Cup competition, Jadeja had hurt his knee while playing against Hong Kong. His most recent first-class encounter was a rescheduled one-off Test against England that took place at Edgbaston in July of last year.
Since the Twenty20 International match against Hong Kong in the Asia Cup on August 31, Jadeja has not participated in any other form of competitive cricket, and his most recent first-class match was the rescheduled one-off Test that was played against England at Edgbaston in July of last year.
The star all-rounder was not present when India played England in the semi-final of the Twenty20 World Cup last year, which resulted in an embarrassing loss for India by 10 wickets to England.
According to reports, he would be participating in the Ranji Trophy match that concludes the group stage for Saurashtra. The 24th of January has been chosen as the day on which play will begin.
“It would be to Saurashtra’s advantage if he played for them. It’s likely that he will, but I don’t have any more information on the matter “Jaydev Shah, who is the head of the Saurashtra Cricket Association, told PTI.
The left-handed hitter is seen as an essential component of India’s batting order, particularly in the middle order at either position 5 or 6 in the absence of Rishabh Pant.
