India VS Australia 2023: Ravindra Jadeja Set to Join the Indian Team. Iyer Still Not Sure. 

India VS Australia

The India VS Australia Tests and their fever have started to set in. Ravindra Jadeja, the world’s best fielder and test-match all-rounder, is expected to rejoin the Indian national team for India vs. Australia Test Matches. The left-arm spinner took a 7-for while playing for Saurashtra in the ongoing Ranji Trophy. On the other hand, Shreyas Iyer is yet to come back to prime fitness. Here is a look at all of this and much more: 

India VS Australia: Ravindra Jadeja Set to Join the Indian Cricket Team: 

Ravindra Jadeja, the all-rounder ranked number 1 by ICC in tests is back in business. He played a great game for Saurashtra in the ongoing Ranji Trophy. Jadeja was looking fit as a fiddle in the game. Even though Saurashtra lost the game but his performance was splendid. He took a seven-for for his domestic team. Here is a look at his wickets:

Jadeja was out of action since the 2022 Asia Cup during which he faced a knee injury. He had to go for surgery and then get rehabilitation. He missed the T20 World Cup 2022 in the meanwhile. His absence was felt in that tournament. The energy and charisma that Jaddu brings to the field were missing. In the India VS Australia Tests, Jaddu will be back with his energy!

One of India’s top test and ODI batters in the last year is yet to come to full fitness. But there isn’t much to talk about it. After Rishabh Pant, it was Iyer who had the best year with the bat in Test Cricket. And in ODI cricket he had the best batting performance in 2022.

Unfortunately, there is a possibility that he may miss out on the first two test matches. Shreyas is out of action due to a back injury. He experienced stiffness in his back during the last series against Sri Lanka. And since then, he is at the National Cricket Academy where they have arranged a rehabilitation program for him too. He will possibly be fit for only two tests of the India VS Australia Series.
