IND vs BAN Test: India Squad Bangladesh Test: Ravindra Jadeja Injury: India’s star all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is out of Test series against Bangladesh. Jadeja is currently recovering from his knee surgery. However, with short turnaround for Bangladesh Test series, he will miss out.

While the selectors picked Jadeja for the ODI series against Bangladesh and put a fitness test condition on his inclusion in Test, he will not make it. InsideSport understands that Jadeja is yet to fully recover completely from the knee surgery. As per doctors’ advise, he is currently on rest. He has not begun full-fledged training to give the knee time to heal.

“No, he will not make it in time for the Test series. We were hoping he could return. But Jadeja needs time. The medical team has advised him to take it easy. He has a history of knee problems and we don’t want to rush his return to gruelling Test-match action yet,” a selection committee member told InsideSport.

Meanwhile, the selectors have put Suryakumar Yadav and Saurabh Kumar for call-ups. Left-arm spinner Saurabh Kumar will be with India A team in Bangladesh. For Suryakumar, who received a call-up for the England tour last year, is currently in NewZealand for the ODI series. He will get a break after the NZ tour.

“Surya and Saurabh are on standby. But we will take a call after the India A series. Axar will be there with the team and has an excellent Test record in the subcontinent. For Surya, he is in excellent form but the focus is on white-ball cricket. He hasn’t played much red-ball cricket. So, we don’t want to throw him to Test cricket immediately,” the selection committee member said.

However, India will not face much trouble in Jadeja’s absence. Axar Patel will be with the squad in Bangladesh and he is the frontrunner to feature in both Tests.

India’s squad for Bangladesh Tests: Rohit Sharma (C), KL Rahul (VC), Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant (WK), KS Bharat (WK), Ravichandran Ashwin, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Shardul Thakur, Mohd. Shami, Mohd. Siraj, Umesh Yadav
