Captain Virat Kohli said after the win that 2-3 players are available for one place only. All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is currently injured and now in his absence, every player who comes to the playing XI is proving himself. Krishna, who played 24 matches in the IPL, has taken 18 wickets in that T20 league and performed brilliantly in his first international match.
The 32-year-old all-rounder has a lot of experience with ‘Sir Jadeja’. He has played 51 Tests, 168 ODIs and 50 T20 Internationals. The BCCI policy has shown that a player who returns after an injury is the first choice of selectors for the playing XI. Just like Riddhiman Saha is considered as the choice of selectors in the test format, he gets a place whenever he returns from injury.
Jadeja has taken 220 wickets in Tests, 188 in ODIs and 39 in T20 Internationals so far. In Tests, he has also scored a total of 1954 runs with the help of a century and 15 half-centuries. In ODIs too, Jadeja has scored 13 half-centuries and has a total of 2411 runs in his name. In such a situation, selectors can include him in the playing-XI when he is available, and there is no problem for him, but the way other players are proving themselves in his absence, after that, it can be a bit difficult. is.
