Jadeja back in form

Mumbai,Dec 24: The BCCI announced on Sunday that all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has regained fitness and is now available for selection for the third Test against Australia which begins on December 26.

“Jadeja’s left shoulder has continued to improve and he is now available for the 3rd Test match of the series in Melbourne,” the BCCI said in a statement.

Jadeja had complained of left shoulder discomfort after prolonged bowling spells during the 2018, West Indies ODI series. He underwent a guided injection in Mumbai for this on November 2.

That enabled the left-arm spinner to represent Saurashtra in the Ranji Trophy match from November 12-15. He was declared fit by the BCCI and selected for the Test series against Australia.

After Jadeja flew to Australia, he complained of a recurrence of his symptoms on November 30 during the match against the CA XI in Sydney.

Management made opinion on the basis of the match held in 14th December,that  the intensity of his bowling in the nets could have been higher, to match the standards required for such an intensely fought series. For this reason, he was not considered for selection for the 2nd Test match,” said BCCI.
