In a big update, the Indian cricket team has been dealt with a major blow. The Men in Blue might miss the services of Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja in the upcoming Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023. However, his availability for the first two Tests still remains under the cloud as the BCCI selectors are yet to make a decision on his inclusion.

It is to be noted that Ravindra Jadeja recently resumed bowling in the nets at the National Cricket Academy and had also shared a video of the same on his social handle. However, in the video it was seen that the all-rounder had protective tape around his right knee.
