Ravindra Jadeja
After the Asia Cup in the UAE, Ravindra Jadeja had knee surgery.

BCCI insiders said that Ravindra Jadeja will not likely be fully fit in time for the Test series against Bangladesh, which begins on December 14 in Chittagong.

BCCI sources say that veteran all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is not likely to be fully healthy in time for the Bangladesh Test series, which begins on December 14 in Chittagong. There is some doubt as to whether India needs a fourth specialist spinner given that they already have three in their ranks (off-spinner R Ashwin, left-arm spinner Axar Patel, and left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav). If they want an easy substitute, they’ll pick India A bowler, Saurabh Kumar.

It has been suggested, however, that a newly created selection committee, or the Indian team’s management in the event that no new committee is formed in time, might use Suryakumar Yadav’s hot streak to their advantage by putting him on the expanded roster. India will send a full-strength side led by Rohit Sharma to Bangladesh for the upcoming two Tests and three One-Day Internationals.

Following a quick three-match One-Day International series in the first week of next month, India will play two Tests on December 14-18 in Chittagong and December 22-26 in Mirpur.

After the Asia Cup in the United Arab Emirates, Jadeja had knee surgery and was subsequently sidelined for an unknown amount of time.

“On multiple occasions, Jadeja has visited NCA for evaluation and rehabilitation. It is unlikely, though, that he will be able to play in the upcoming Bangladesh series. Since the previous selection committee, now chaired by Chetan Sharma, had kept him on the team pending his physical fitness, “BCCI insiders told PTI under cover of anonymity what was going on.

Some time remains before the successor must be revealed.

Earlier this year, Saurabh was a part of the Test squad that faced Sri Lanka in a series. In an “A” Test series played in Bengaluru, he took five wickets against New Zealand A.

The availability of Ashwin, Kuldeep, and Axar makes it difficult to choose the fourth spinner, although the second choice could be an exciting one.
