Ravindra Jadeja has returned to the team selected for the Test series.

New Delhi. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who was out of the Indian cricket team due to injury, has returned to Team India. The selectors announced the squad for the upcoming series against New Zealand and Australia on Friday. India has to play in ODI and T20 series against New Zealand while first Test and then ODI series will be played with Australia. Jadeja has returned to the Test team but the BCCI has put a condition before playing the match against him.

Indian cricket team’s star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has been running out of the field for the last 5 months. He made a comeback to the team after being injured during the Asia Cup but was dropped due to not being fully fit. After being ruled out of the Bangladesh tour, his name is now included in the team selected for the first two matches of the Test series against Australia. The selectors have written subject to fitness with Jadeja’s name, meaning he will make a place only if he achieves fitness.

BCCI put a condition in front of Jadeja

According to the Times of India, the BCCI has asked Jadeja to play at least one domestic match before the Nagpur Test against Australia. Only after the match is fit, he will be given a place in the playing eleven of the Test match against Australia.
