Ravindra Jadeja has been selected in the team, but this is how he will get a chance in the playing XI
All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been selected in India’s Test team, but he will get a chance in the playing XI only when he regains fitness. For this, they have to play at least one domestic match.
The Indian team has been announced for the first two matches of the four-match Test series against Australia. Spin all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja’s name is included in the 15-member squad, but he will have to prove his fitness. The Board of Control for Cricket in India ie BCCI has said this in its press release issued on Friday. The Test series starts on February 9 in Nagpur.
On the other hand, if media reports are to be believed then Ravindra Jadeja will have to play at least one competitive match for his fitness. It is believed that Ravindra Jadeja can be seen in Ranji Trophy soon, so that it can be proved that he has achieved match fitness. This Border-Gavaskar Trophy is important from the Indian team’s point of view, as it will decide the finalists of the ICC World Test Championship.
Please tell that Ravindra Jadeja is an important part of India’s playing XI. He can be seen as a spin trio along with R Ashwin and Akshar Patel. Spin bowlers dominate in India. Ravindra Jadeja played the last match before the Asia Cup 2022. He was also out of T20 World Cup 2022, but now this series is very important for him.
A BCCI source told TOI, “Ravindra Jadeja has been asked to play at least one home match. If he is indeed fit, it will solve the left-handed batsman’s problem in the middle order and give India Can play with five bowlers.” Anyway, you will be able to achieve match fitness only when you play competitive matches.

The source further said, “A person like Jadeja may have to bowl more and more overs to prove his match fitness and to show that. If he bowls 30-35 overs in an innings it is good. Was feeding Bumrah. Hope they don’t do the same with Jaddu. The policy of playing at least one home match should be mandatory, like it was a few years ago.”
