The BCCI is still troubled by the injury of two veteran players of the team. The team has been announced for the first 2 Tests against Australia. Fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah is still out of the team due to rehab. At the same time, left-arm spinner and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja has definitely got a place.
Along with giving Jadeja a place in the Test team, the board has also written one thing that he will be able to play only if he is fit. That is, there is still a question about his fitness. Bumrah and Ravindra Jadeja could not even enter the T20 World Cup due to injury. It was like a setback for the team and she was eliminated after losing in the semi-finals.
Jadeja has not played a match since August 2022 while Bumrah has not played since September
