Melbourne: Good news arrives for Team India ahead of the Boxing Day Test against Australia on December 26th. In fact, ravindra Jadeja, the talented all-rounder of the Indian team, has started training on the nets. Jadeja practiced for an hour and also bowled at her Saurashtra teammate Cheteshwar Pujara.
The Cricket Control Board of India (BCCI) on Wednesday shared a video of high school Ravindra Jadeja on Twitter. BCCI tweeted: ‘See who got back on the net. Ravindra Jadeja has started to prepare for the Boxing Day Test.
Indian team management are keeping a close eye on Ravindra Jadeja ahead of Boxing Day’s test against Australia. This all-rounder can be included in the Melbourne Test playing XI. Jadeja suffered a head injury during the T20 International series and after that her leg muscles were also stretched, which resulted in her being dropped from the first test. India suffered a loss in the first test and meanwhile Jadeja returned to the net.

If Jadeja is in good shape, Andhra Pradesh batsman Vihari may have to be left out of the eleven players. The reason for Vihari’s exit, however, is not his poor performance in the first test in Adelaide, but Ajinkya Rahane and Ravi Shastri for fielding the best combination. Jadeja will replace Vihari based on her versatile skills. Also, this will give us the opportunity to land on MCG with 5 bowlers.
Jadeja scored 1,869 tries in 49 tests at an average of over 35, including a century and 14 half-centuries. He had marked half centuries during previous tours in Australia and England. Vihari, on the other hand, scored 576 races in 10 tests, including a century against the West Indies and four half centuries.
