Ravindra Jadeja picked up a knee damage on the Asia Cup that saved him out of the house sequence towards South Africa and Australia and the T20 World Cup. He underwent knee surgical procedure and he lately visited the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru for a check-up.

However, the previous choice committee, led by Chetan Sharma, picked Jadeja for the ODI and the Test squad for Bangladesh. The BCCI in its press launch mentioned Jadeja’s availability was topic to health.

However, Jadeja, it appears, is unlikely to be totally match for the tour of Bangladesh, beginning December 4, based on information company PTI.

“Jadeja has been to NCA for his check-up and rehab on a number of occasions. However, as of now, it is unlikely that he will be fit for the Bangladesh series. In any case, Chetan Sharma-led former selection committee had kept him in the squad subject to fitness,” the information company quoted a BCCI supply as saying.

It stays to be seen if India would go forward and choose a spinner as Jadeja’s substitute because the selectors already named 3 spinners in R Ashwin, Kuldeep Yadav and Axar Patel.

If they search a simple substitute, then it will likely be Saurabh Kumar, the India A bowler, the report added. Saurabh was a part of the Test squad towards Sri Lanka earlier this yr.

However, hypothesis is rife that India would look so as to add Suryakumar Yadav to the Test squad and make full use of his red-hot kind. The India batter completed the yr because the main run-scorer in T20I cricket, scoring in extra of 1100 runs in 31 matches.

Suryakumar was additionally a part of the Test squad beforehand, having earned his maiden call-up through the tour of England.
