684 wickets in combine –

  • The duo of Ashwin and Jadeja offer different dimensions to the Indian team as they can turn the red ball in the English conditions.
  • While there were earlier reports of only one player likely to make the team, India are now likely to include both as they offer batting utility.
  • The duo has a proud bowling record and would come in handy if needed with the bat as Rohit Sharma likely and KL Rahul are already out for India.
  • The experienced pair has a combined tally of 684 wickets in between them and will be a welcome addition.

Utility factor offered by Ashwin and Jadeja-

Both Ashwin and Jadeja will come as a huge utility factor for Team India with their batting ability. Ashwin has five hundreds with the bat and is more than just a part-time batter as he has also played some important knocks for the country.

Jadeja on the horizon is also a player with commanding batting ability. In 59 Test match matches, he has scored 2396 runs with a best of 175 unbeaten. His 242 wickets in the longer format coupled with his batting and fielding ability make him better equipped to the conditions.

Jadeja to make comeback-

Jadeja is returning from a lengthy injury lay-off, having last played a competitive game in May. Jadeja missed the rest of the IPL ever since he was affected by rib injury and was on the treatment table. Moreover, the break came as a blessing in disguise as he relinquished his Chennai Super Kings (CSK) captaincy and took necessary break to recharge his batteries.

On the horizon, Ashwin will be wary of the English conditions and hasn’t enjoyed trips to the nation. Ashwin has scalped 18 wickets, and seven of those came in the Edgbaston Test from 2018. While there have been occasions where Ashwin has been warming the bench, it is not to be underestimated that he is still the man who possesses match-winning spells.

IND squad against England: 

Rohit Sharma (Ruled Out), Mayank Agarwal, Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Hanuma Vihari, Cheteshwar Pujara, Risabh Pant (Wicket Keeper), KS Bharat (Wicket Keeper), Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Shardul Thakur, Mohd. Shami, Jasprit Bumrah (Captain), Mohd, Siraj, Umesh Yadav, and Prasidh Krishna.
