India vs England: Ravindra Jadeja ruled out of test series against England at home
Xtra Time Web Desk: Star India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been ruled out of the Test series against England at home. Jadeja, who had dislocated his left thumb in the third Test in Sydney, is yet to recover. The cricketer from Saurashtra underwent surgery in Australia. He will need six weeks to recover.
India is scheduled to play four Tests, five T20 Internationals and three ODIs starting February 5. The first two Tests will be played in Chennai while the next two will be in Ahmedabad. As per reports in Indian Express Jadeja is unlikely to take part in the test series against Joe Root’s team. A decision on Jadeja’s participation in the T20Is and ODIs will be taken later.
“He is out of Test series and he will take more than six weeks to recover completely. The selectors will take a call later, whether to include him in the team for the shorter formats,” a BCCI official told The Indian Express.
Jadeja will travel to the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore for rehabilitation.
