Jadeja unlikely for Bangladesh tour, selectors may choose replacement

More than a million fans are anticipated to attend. Ravindra Jadeja will miss the next Bangladesh trip. The India all-rounder has not recovered from an injury sustained during the Asia Cup and will have to be replaced in the Bangladesh-bound squad. He was a conditional inclusion in both the ODI and Test squads for the three-ODI and two-Test tours.

Jadeja Missed out on the Bangladesh tour

Jadeja, who will be 34 next month, has not entirely healed from the unexpected injury he received during the Asia Cup in August, according to sources at the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and his home town Rajkot. Jadeja’s final appearance for India came against Hong Kong on August 31 in Dubai. He eventually had to miss a significant portion of the Asia Cup and the ensuing World Cup. The BCCI said that Jadeja’s participation in the Bangladesh tour is subject to fitness while releasing the India teams for the visit.

“Mr. Ravindra Jadeja’s availability is subject to fitness,” the BCCI stated in a media release on October 31. The situation may have become a little complicated with the national selection committee being restructured, but Cricbuzz understands that the Chetan Sharma panel is going about its business as usual. They may announce the replacement later this week when India A squad is also expected to be announced.

Members of the selection committee, who were recently fired en masse, have been watching Vijay Hazare matches at various locations. Most, if not all, are also expected to be in Ahmedabad, where the 50-over tournament’s knockouts begin on November 26. Meanwhile, speculation is rife about the candidates interested in serving on the new committee.

Shiv Sunder Das, currently the batting coach for Punjab, is expected to apply, while in the West Zone, Nayan Mongia, Sameer Dighe, Ramesh Powar, and Salil Ankola are mentioned as potential candidates. According to reports, Rajesh Chauhan from the Central Zone and Mithun Manhas from the North Zone are among those interested in applying.

There is still time to apply until November 28th, and additional names may emerge. The BCCI expects to finish the new committee’s establishment by mid-December, after which it may select the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC).
