India vs West Indies First One Day International match is to be played today, but before that Team India may face a big setback. The team’s vice-captain and star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja may have to sit out of the playing XI. Suspense remains on Ravindra Jadeja playing in today’s match. He could be ruled out of the first match due to a knee injury, although it has not been officially confirmed yet.
With veterans like Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Jasprit Bumrah and Rishabh Pant being rested from this series, the team’s command is in the hands of Shikhar Dhawan. With the kind of form Jadeja is running with bat and ball, his exclusion from the team can increase the problems of Shikhar Dhawan and Co.
There will be an official update on Jadeja’s availability just before the match, as the medical team is currently monitoring his injury. If Jadeja is out, then Axar Patel can get a place in the team in his place.
