The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has shared an update on Ravindra Jadeja after the all-rounder was seen missing from the squad for the India vs West Indies ODI and T20I series. The 33-year-old last donned the national colours in the 1st IND vs NZ Test in Kanpur nearly two months ago. Thereafter, he was ruled out of the second Test due to a knee injury.
Ravindra Jadeja couldn't part in the Test and ODI series against South Africa either. In the meantime, the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) retained the veteran for the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL). Apart from Ravindra Jadeja, fast bowlers Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Shami have also been rested from the limited-overs series against the Caribbean team.
